S3 Open to 80 Drivers at Supernats 13
Wednesday, 23 September 2009 20:05
The excitement developing in the Stock Moto categories continues to please us here at the SKUSA organization.   Our CEO Tom Kutscher, is thrilled to confirm that the S4 category has just two positions left on the 40-kart grid as of this writing, but it is the overwhelming interest in the S3 class that has him looking into the future.  The S3 class hit its 40-driver max very early on in the registration process and entries have continued to pour in as drivers are putting themselves on the waiting list with hopes of getting a spot on the grid.  Due to this overwhelming response, SKUSA has elected to open the class up to a maximum of 80 karts, harkening back to the early days of the organization when Last Chance Qualifiers were a regular highlight of the annual SuperNationals.

“The Stock Moto classes are the future of SKUSA, and to have this much interest in both S3 and S4 bodes well for the future of the SuperNationals and next year’s Pro Tour as well,” Kutscher commented.   “With the extra day this year, we’ll be able to make the necessary room in the schedule and I can’t wait to see the Last Chance Qualifier for this one.  With S3, TaG Senior and TaG Junior all going to 80 entries, we’ll have LCQ’s all morning on SuperSunday.  It will be a great way to kick off the day!”

Superkarts! USA Releases Renamed Class and Licensing Structure for 2010
Tuesday, 15 September 2009 01:00
As part of a sport that has traditionally been overwhelmed by far too many classes, the continuing growth of the Superkarts! USA organization is being directed at a much tighter focus. The newest announcement from the operation’s Temecula headquarters is the unveiling of a reworked class structure that will continue SKUSA’s dedication to the Stock Moto and TaG categories. At the beginning of the decade, Superkarts! USA benefited from a very simple class structure, and the time has come to re-organize the current line-up. All of the current classes remain in the program, but several will be renamed and re-organized to present a more properly tiered system.

Beginning with the 2010 season, this new structure will become the foundation of SKUSA’s future growth, steering the organization clear of karting’s over-flowing mess of categories. The reworked line-up will keep the organization’s ‘S’ nomenclature and will run from S5 up to S1. The program will be headlined by the S1 class - the new name for the current S3 formula - which is the organization’s Stock Moto Expert offering. S3 and S4 have become the backbone of the SKUSA movement, and the excitement over affordable Stock Moto racing has pushed them to the forefront. With S1 positioned at the ‘Pro’ class, the new S2 category will be tabbed as the ‘Amateur Stock Moto’ class. S3 will be re-invented as a new Stock Moto class for Masters drivers. Several current G1 Masters drivers have made the move from the ICC or built moto-powered class to the Stock Moto package, prompting SKUSA to fuel this development by giving the 30+ year-old drivers a chance to enjoy the affordability and reliability of the Stock Honda in an official capacity.

Neal Secures ProKart Challenge South Titles at Season Finale
Thursday, 03 September 2009 13:37
The final round of Superkarts! USA’s ProKart Challenge South took place during last Saturday’s heat wave outside the Auto Club Speedway around the CalSpeed Karting facility. The seventh and final round of the fifth season for the Southern California-based PKC program was one of the most attended and most exciting – with a number of competitors on hand preparing for the upcoming SKUSA SuperNationals XIII in November mixed in with those chasing down a championship. In total, nine champions were crowned following the action around the ‘Grande-reverse’ circuit.

Heading into CalSpeed, the attention in the S3 class was geared toward point leader Jacob Neal. Coming in with five straight feature wins, those chasing him would need to put in their best runs of the season to hope to dethrone him. Patrick Cushenberry – who entered the event second in the points – began the event in that fashion as he put down the fastest lap in qualifying, edging Neal by just 14-thousandths of a second. PKC North defending champion Jason Toft made the trek down for more track time, and was third in the timed session ahead of Clinton Schoombee and S5 Junior graduate Race Liberante. The first 10-lap heat race saw Neal lead flag to flag, with Schoombee advancing up to second while Cushenberry fell to fourth behind Toft. Schoombee, third in the standings, got the jump off the line and paced the field the entire second heat race - despite some painful injured ribs from a few weeks back. Neal slotted into second until lap three, when he was waved off track for no neck collar. Toft would go on to finish second ahead of Cushenberry.
