EKN Trackside: 2020 Superkarts! USA Pro Tour – Weekend One Preview
Thursday, 06 August 2020 07:12
The 2020 Superkarts! USA Pro Tour has been delayed by five months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. What was set to begin in March in New Orleans saw only four rounds of practice completed for the start of the WinterNationals before the government shut down the facility and sent everyone home for what was unknown at the time to be a stay-at-home order. Hopes of the SpringNationals in May at the Utah Motorsports Campus diminished as there was still the unknown about traveling and the state’s status for large gatherings. Now into August, Superkarts! USA has condensed the six rounds of the Pro Tour into two weekends, with each pair of dates hosting three rounds of racing.

The New Castle Motorsports Park in New Castle, Indiana has been working with local and state officials to help provide a safe and social distance environment. That allows SKUSA to conduct the two weekends of racing that will decide the 2020 SKUSA Pro Tour champions. Rounds One, Two and Three are set for August 6-9, all conducted on the ‘Super Mile’ layout that was utilized at the SummerNationals 2019. Rounds Four, Five and Six are scheduled for August 13-16 around the ‘Reverse National’ layout. Read full story on eKartingNews.com
 
SKUSA ProTour New Castle, Indiana COVID-19 Protocol, and Guidelines
Sunday, 02 August 2020 06:01
To SKUSA racers, supporters and staff, we are all very excited to be able to host and participate in the 2020 SuperkartsUSA ProTour Event in New Castle, Indiana. First and foremost, we would like to thank you for attending our event during these unprecedented times. As of July 27th, Indiana Governor, Eric Holcomb, announced a face covering mandate for the state of Indiana. Our number one priority during these challenging times is to ensure the safety of our participants, staff, customers, and teams. To keep everyone safe during our event, face coverings or masks will be mandated when out of your personal pit space. These mandates are to comply with the Indiana state mandate, CDC, OSHA, and federal recommendations.

We will not be monitoring masks within your own personal tents. However, they are strongly recommended. We will have SKUSA officials around the premises to implement this protocol and keep our racing community safe during our event. We appreciate everyone's understanding and support during this time and are so happy to be able to hold this event and continue with our racing season.

SKUSA SummerNationals Sees SKUSA Reaffirm Their Commitment To Safety. A Bigger Purse. Food. Music, And More.
Wednesday, 29 July 2020 14:22


With the SKUSA ProTour event just days away, Superkarts! USA is incredibly pleased to offer a fun-filled and action-packed group of consecutive events at the nation’s leading facility – New Castle Motorsports Park. With the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, the series is acutely aware this may be the single biggest karting event of 2020 and are planning accordingly.

First and foremost, safety is key. With the recent Indiana state mandate and requirement of face masks, SKUSA will be providing complimentary SKUSA branded face coverings for those who do not have their own. Social distancing and virus mitigation will be paramount for both weekends, with a priority placed on safety above all else. Track proprietors have been collaborating very closely with Indiana county and state officials to work hand in hand on providing the safest possible conditions for the event to occur. The track is also in regular communication with the state excide (Indiana Coronavirus task force) and Henry County Health Department to keep abreast of every breaking development.

“We can appreciate after NOLA the uncertainty and uneasiness in entering a national event,” remarked Tom Kutscher. “Rest assured, every conceivable angle of safety has been considered and the track is working very closely with regulators to ensure there are no disruptions in the festivities. Indiana as a state, are very far along in the reopening process. Currently, Indiana is at a 4.5 reopening stage. Naturally our event will require cooperation from our guests with respects to face coverings and maintaining social distance, but we feel extremely confident in proceeding.”

Multiple Double Race Winners at Recent California ProKart Challenge Event
Thursday, 16 July 2020 16:02

The 2020 season resumed for the California ProKart Challenge program with Rounds Four and Five contested at the Santa Maria Karting Association facility. Teams and competitors of the Superkarts! USA regional program ventured to the facility just outside the Santa Maria Airport and minutes from the Pacific coast over the July 10-12 weekend. The weather was perfect all weekend long and everyone within the paddock complied with the COVID-19 guidelines set out prior to the event. On-track, a number of drivers were able to come away with a double victory weekend as the championship chase becomes more defined heading toward the series finale.

Extending his win streak on the season to four is X30 Master driver Billy Cleavelin. The two-time SKUSA SuperNationals winner was perfect on the weekend, finishing every session in the top spot. Saturday was a wire-to-wire victory in the Final to an 11-second advantage over Jure Gaspar and Jeff Rice. Sunday was a similar performance, leading all 24 laps in the main event to a 14-second margin of victory. Alan Morte improved to second with Gaspar in third. The result is four straight perfect rounds for Cleavelin to maintain the championship lead.
