California ProKart Challenge

Alcorn Hits Fifth Win in Round 5 of PKC NorCal
Friday, 15 August 2008 20:19
The fifth round of the Superkarts! USA ProKart Challenge North program saw another great turnout at the Jim Russell International Karting Center under clear sunny skies this last weekend. The penultimate round of the series competed on August 9 utilizing the standard 3/4-mile national configuration of the Sonoma, California facility. Following a full day of practice and BBQ sponsored by Diede Construction the day before, drivers and teams continued chasing the championship in the eight divisions.

Heading into the weekend, Jason Toft held the top spot in the two divisions, TaG Senior and S3. His shifter machine was near perfection in round five. After earning top honors in S3 qualifying, Toft ran second in heat one to Steve Reasoner – who was penalized three positions for jumping the start, thereby giving Toft the win. Heat two was a great battle with championship rival Marc Elliott, with a last lap for Toft for win number two on the day. A slow start dropped Toft to second on the opening circuit of the 20-lap final before assuming the top spot and going on to a 2.407-second victory for a clean sweep on the day. Elliott ran second with Brad Dunford completing the podium.

Round 5 On Tap for ProKart Challenge NorCal
Wednesday, 06 August 2008 16:49
Championship battles heating up as Superkarts! Northern California region nears end of the season
Another exciting edition of Superkarts! USA ProKart Challenge North program is on tap this weekend with Round #5 taking place at the Jim Russell International Karting Center at Infineon Raceway. The 3/4-mile circuit in Sonoma, California circuit will host the fifth straight event, returning to the standard clockwise direction of the national configuration after the last two rounds of running in the reverse direction. With the championship counting the best five of six races for each driver, the titles and the handsome prize packages offered by SKUSA and Jim Russell Racing Drivers School are all still up for grabs.

Two drivers have been especially on their game this season at the PKC North events: Matt Alcorn and Craig Corwin. Both had perfect records heading into Round #4, and despite a few hiccups, they prevailed in July – with their fourth main event wins on the year. Alcorn leads the S4 division over Alexander Keith, while Craig Corwin sits on top of the G1 standings over Ethan Wilson.

TaG Senior will come down to the wire with five tough drivers in the hunt. Jason Toft leads by just 29 points over round four winner Will Martindale -- with Cameron Pringle, main event winners Brett Buckwalter and Alex Speed giving chase. Toft also holds the top spot in S3, with Marc Elliott trailing by 150 points heading into round five. Cody Hodgson still leads the S1 standings, with Herman Ip and Steve Elo in front of the TaG Masters Light and TaG Masters divisions. HPV 2 will be on the schedule for the remainder of the season -- with the point championship beginning last round with David Vasquez taking the main event win and standings lead over Donavon Wheeler and Kelsey Nilsson.

PKC will again provide a Friday night BBQ, sponsored by Diede Construction, for all those competitors and their family and friends following the full day of practice.


 
Legate Sweeps in San Diego at Round 5 of ProKart Challenge SoCal
Wednesday, 30 July 2008 20:38
The Superkarts! USA ProKart Challenge South program traveled further south to Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, California for Round #5 over the July 25-26 weekend. The 1.1-mile temporary circuit laid out in the San Diego Chargers’ home stadium parking lot provided the teams and drivers with a unique and exciting event as the season nears the end. On-track, Bobby Legate swept the S3 Light category to extend his point championship lead, while the TaG Senior drivers put on a great show for the paddock.

It was a solid weekend for the S3 Light point leader, as Legate was quick right out of the trailer on his new Arrow chassis. Posting the top time in qualifying, Legate began heat one from the pole. After an early challenge from championship rival Patrick Cushenberry, Legate would take the win by over a second. In heat two, he would stretch out to a two-second victory over Cushenberry. The final would see Legate take the green and pace the field for the full 20-lap event as the only driver to run under the 59-second bracket for his third win of the season. Cushenberry was a solid second all day, with Clinton Schoombee running third. Schoombee was also on a new Arrow chassis, making the Arrows a clean sweep for S3 Light. Harley Owen edged his teammate Kyle Hathcox in the final for fourth.

Superkarts! USA SuperNationals XII Website Goes Live August 1
Wednesday, 30 July 2008 20:36
With the 2008 regional karting season winding down and November fast approaching, it won’t be long before the only thing on any karter’s mind is the pinnacle of North American karting: the Superkarts! USA SuperNationals. This year’s event marks the 12th running of the race and the return to the acclaimed Rio All-Suite Las Vegas Hotel & Casino. It’s a move that has generated so much buzz, not even SKUSA’s own staff could have anticipated it.

“To be completely honest, I figured the Rio Hotel news would be big – but I had no idea just how big,” explained a very excited Tom Kutscher. “It’s no secret, the economy isn’t exactly booming. All you read about is gas prices this, foreclosures that. The fact that we’ve been able to secure this fantastic location and pass tremendous savings along to the racer is just what the doctor ordered. Teams will literally be able to park their vehicles and be set for the entire week. No more treks to and from Sam Boyd – one can literally walk from their room to the pits in a matter of minutes.”
