Official Statement of Intent from ROK Cup USA, SKUSA and USPKS
Monday, 20 June 2022 16:00
Starting immediately, the named organizations and their affiliated series will be working together to raise the level of professionalism in the sport of karting in the United States, both on the track and in the paddock.

We will be working together closely to develop a system which honors the disciplinary actions taken by one organization or series, across all named organizations and affiliated series. Our series will no longer be a place for bad behavior, to include, but not limited to both acts and threats of violence, by attendees and drivers alike. No competitor or attendee should have to worry about their physical safety at karting events in the United States and no longer will these bad actors be able to simply take that behavior to another series.

In just one week, the California ProKart Challenge returns to action and hosts the lone double-round weekend of the season. Competitors from all over the west coast will converge on the CalSpeed Karting Center facility in Fontana, California during the June 24-26 weekend for Rounds Three and Four of the Superkarts! USA regional program. The ‘Sportivo’ layout of 0.656 miles in the clockwise direction will be the selected circuit at one of the most popular venues on the schedule this year. A full day of practice on Friday will be followed by two separate rounds of competition on Saturday and Sunday, taking the championship program into the second half of the season.

Two runner-up finishes have Ethan Lampe at the top of the championship standings in the HRT Driver Development KA100 Senior class. Lampe holds a 200-point advantage over Luis Perez, with Timothy Carel in the third spot. Both races were won by one-round drivers Frankie Mossman and Blake Nash, who are back in 13th and 12th respectively in the standings thus far. Keagan Kaminski has been the most consistent over the opening two rounds in the Nash Motorsportz KA100 Junior class. Kaminski has a third and fourth-place finish in the two events at Buttonwillow and holds a 20-point advantage over recent SKUSA Pro Tour SpringNationals winner Charlie Smith, with Alex Mercado in third. Round One winner William Rasmussen sits fourth with Round Two victor Jesus Vasquez Jr. back in eighth.

The 12th edition of the Superkarts! USA Pro Tour SpringNationals – presented by ASPEN Fuels USA – was completed on Sunday at the Utah Motorsports Campus. The weather was intensified at the Erda, Utah facility with the temperature increasing, while bringing on strong winds that played havoc on the track and the paddock. The competitors and SKUSA staff powered through, completing the day for the nine categories competing the fourth round of the championship chase for the 2022 season.

For the third time in four rounds, four-time SKUSA Pro Tour champion Ryan Norberg (RPG / Kosmic) won the X30 Senior presented by Speedlab Racing Engines class. Today’s effort was a perfect score on the round to help elevate him to the top of the championship chase. After setting fast time in Qualifying and leading all 10 laps of the Prefinal, Norberg was shuffled down to fourth on the opening circuit with former FIA Karting World Champion Pedro Hiltbrand (PSL / Birel ART) leading. Cameron Weinberg (SCR / CRG) and Paul Bocuse (RPG / Kosmic) were the drivers to jump ahead of Norberg on the opening lap. By the end of lap three, he was back into the lead. Once there, he extended his lead with each lap until the checkered and red flag was waved as Julian DaCosta (RPM / Tony Kart) needed medical attention following an incident. Norberg finished with a five-second advantage, posting a fast lap three tenths quicker than nay other driver. Hiltbrand settled for second, holding off Bocuse with Frankie Mossman (Benik / Tony Kart) up to third. Jeremy Fletcher (RPM / Tony Kart) completed the top-five.

EKN Trackside: 2022 Superkarts! USA Pro Tour SpringNationals – Saturday Report

The first half of the 2022 Superkarts! USA Pro Tour is in the books following Round Three being contested on the first day of competition at the SKUSA SpringNationals presented by ASPEN Fuels USA. The third time the event has been held at the Utah Motorsports Campus – fourth total visit to the Erda, Utah facility – is in a different month. The weather throughout the weekend, including today, felt more like July, as temps rose into the mid-90s by the final checkered flag. The heat was felt on and off the track for the nine categories deciding today’s winners.

The headline Pro Shifter category sponsored by PSL Karting featured 25 drivers on the day. Back in NOLA at the WinterNationals, they were all chasing 2019 FIA World Karting KZ Champion Marijn Kremers (PSL / Birel ART). The Dutchman was able to edge out 2017 champion Jake French (PSL / Birel ART) by 21 thousandths with a 55.369-lap in qualifying. In the Prefinal, French was able to take the lead after four-time SuperNationals winner Billy Musgrave (Factory Kart) grabbed the holeshot. French went on to take the provisional win, holding off Kremers at the line. A pushback bumper penalty dropped French to fourth and put Kremers P1 with defending champion AJ Myers (Magik Kart USA) alongside on the front row. Myers took the holeshot to begin the 20-lap Final with Kremers slotting into second. After the first circuit, Kremers looked inside of Myers in turn one. The two made contact at the apex of turn two, sending both off in the dirt. Myers spun around backwards while Kremers rejoined further down the order. This gave French the lead with Hunter Pickett (PSL / Birel ART) in second. Eventually, 2019 champion Kyle Wick (GFC / Trackmagic) was on the hunt after suffering an engine issue in qualifying and driving up to eighth in the Prefinal. He would put himself into the second spot by lap 12 and slowly reeled in French. Coming to the white flag, Wick was able to move around French and from there, drive off to the checkered flag for the victory – the first in Pro Tour history for the Trackmagic brand. It is Wick’s first Pro Tour victory since SpringNationals 2018 in Phoenix. French settled for second, his best finish of the 2022 season thus far with Pickett joining them on the podium in third. Jacob Gulick (GFC) drove to fourth with Hannah Greenemeier (RPG / LN Racing Kart) placing fifth in her Pro Shifter debut. Kremers drove back to eighth while Myers ended up 18th.

The second stop of the 2022 Superkarts! USA Pro Tour takes karters to the Utah Motorsports Campus for the 12th edition of the SKUSA SpringNationals – presented by ASPEN Fuels USA. Round Three and Four of the SKUSA Pro Tour will be contested at the Erda, Utah facility, as the 13th season of the championship program resumes after the opening two rounds were contested at the NOLA Motorsports Park back in April.

With 204 pre-entries over the nine categories, this makes it the second highest total since 2018, just 17 short of the total from last year. This weekend is the fourth visit for the Superkarts! USA Pro Tour to the Utah Motorsports Campus, dating back to the 2012 SummerNationals at the then named Miller Motorsports Park. The SpringNationals in 2019 and 2021 were held at UMC.

The Miller Motorsports Park was opened in 2006 and carried that name until changing in October 2015 to Utah Motorsports Campus. Over the 16 years, the 0.9-mile karting circuit has hosted a number of national and regional events, including three previous SKUSA Pro Tour events. The ‘Star Trek’ layout features 18 turns, with this year’s SpringNationals following the same direction as the previous two, going in the clockwise direction. Read full story on eKartingNew.com
