SuperKarts! USA Announces Changes To Pro and Master Shifter Weights As Well As A Combined Class Structure For The Upcoming SuperNationals 24
Friday, 17 September 2021 14:06
Due to worldwide COVID-19 travel restrictions and lower than expected numbers thus far in the separate shifter categories, and so we could open other SuperNationals classes that were waitlisted to higher capacity, we have decided to combine the two Pro Shifter classes back into one.

Continuing our pledge to respond to customer demand and feedback, SKUSA is pleased to announce the following rule update. Beginning with the SKUSA SuperNationals, the weights for respective shifter classes will change to the following:
  • Pro Shifter (KZ/SSE) - 390 LBS
  • Master Shifter (KZ/SSE) - 405 LBS
The change in weight comes after much research, data collection and comparisons throughout the year with the mixed engine format. The new weight allows for closer competition and opens the widest berth for a larger number of drivers in the SKUSA ProTour program.

The event purse will remain the same for the combined Pro Shifter class if a KZ wins. A contingency prize is being offered to any driver running the IAME SSE package that puts it on pole and/or wins the race.

  Purse USD SSE Contingency
Pole $3,000 + $2000
1st $10,000 + $5000
2nd $5,000  
3rd $2,000

The California ProKart Challenge hosted the penultimate round of the 2021 season on the September 11-12 weekend at the Willow Springs International Raceway. The Rosamond, California facility has been the site of many Superkarts! USA regional program events in the past, including both the famed Streets of Willow course and the karting circuit. The two-day event for Round Five of the 2021 championship program was held on the nine-turn, 6/10-mile kart track in the counter-clockwise direction.

Blake Nash put himself back into the championship chase with his first victory in the Nash Motorsportz KA100 Senior class since the season opener. His performance on the weekend was a near perfect two days that began with a blitzing fast lap in qualifying. Nash laid down a 45.855-second lap to clear the 28-driver field by three tenths of a second. The following day, Nash led all 14 laps in the Prefinal to a 1.5-second advantage. The 24-lap Final began with Oliver Calvo getting the jump on Nash, leading the opening eight laps. Nash took over the position on lap nine and showed the way the remainder of the race for the victory. Calvo finished second, helping his efforts toward the series championship. Aiden Kempf joined them on the podium in third with Colby Dubato and Ayden Aquino completing the top-five. Championship leader Dante Yu was seventh, setting up for an exciting final round.

Monday, 06 September 2021 08:57

The California ProKart Challenge is set to resume the 2021 season over the September 11-12 weekend with a trip to the Willow Springs International Raceway. The Rosamond, California facility is set to host Round Five of the six-round championship program for the Superkarts! USA regional series. The 6/10-mile, nine-turn course will be run in the counter-clockwise direction, helping to further decide those who will remain in the championship chase with over $70,000 in purses and prizes to be handed out by the end of the season.

Multi-time series champion Billy Musgrave resumed his position at the top of the Pro Shifter point standings, thanks to his third win on the season at Santa Maria. Musgrave leads Vincente Salas by 68 points, with Jacob Yesnick a close third. KA100 Senior has Round Two winner Dante Yu still leading the championship chase thanks to three podiums in four rounds. Round One winner Blake Nash sits second, behind by just 50 points – with former series champion Oliver Calvo there in third.

EKN Trackside: 2021 SKUSA Pro Tour SummerNationals – Sunday Report
Tuesday, 17 August 2021 05:10

Sunday was the sixth and final round to the 2021 Superkarts! USA Pro Tour with the 11th running of the SummerNationals hosting the series finale. What began in March in New Orleans, was completed at the New Castle Motorsports Park with the sixth and final round of this year’s championship program. The New Castle, Indiana facility provided an amazing day for racing, with all nine categories deciding just who would end up with the coveted SKUSA #1 plate in their respective classes. History was made throughout the day, including the second ever female series champion, the first three-time shifterkart headline title winner, and the first driver to record six career championships at the SKUSA Pro Tour.

The title chase in the Rolison Performance Group X30 Senior division was done to just two drivers. Branyon Tiner (RPG / Kosmic) held a slight advantage over Hannah Greenemeier (RPG / Kosmic) heading into the final round. Greenemeier nearly grabbed the 10 bonus points for fast time in qualifying but was edged out by Saturday winner Nate Cicero (RPG / Kosmic). He along with Greenemeier and Ryan Norberg (RPG / Kosmic) decided the Prefinal with four-time champ Norberg earning the win. Tiner was making his way forward inside the top-10 when contact put him off the track and eventually out of the race. That set up for a scenario for the championship to be in the hands of Greenemeier depending on the results of the main event. Norberg was able to get away from the field at the start of the Final as Cicero was shuffled off in the opening corners and then collected in a multiple kart pileup in turn three, ending his day. Norberg set his ride on cruise control, running consistent times over the 16-lap race to drive away to a 4.680-second advantage. Greenemeier was in the fight for a podium position behind Norberg. She along with Pauly Massimino (RPM / Kosmic), Braden Eves (MPG / WPK) and Thomas Annunziata (MDR / Tony Kart) were in the fight. Annunziata was able to edge out Massimino and Hannah at the line for the runner-up spot. Massimino was given a pushback bumper penalty, thus dropping him to fifth and Thomas Nepveu to fourth in his Trinity Karting Group / Kart Republic debut weekend. And it also promoted Greenemeier to the third step of the podium, clinching the SKUSA Pro Tour championship, becoming only the second female champion in the 12-year history of the program.

EKN Trackside: 2021 Superkarts! USA Pro Tour SummerNationals – Saturday Report

The fifth round of the Superkarts! USA Pro Tour at New Castle Motorsports Park was highlighted by some incredible racing action and more than one drag race out of the I-70 hairpin to the checkered flag. The 11th running of the SummerNationals will provide the cap to the 2021 national championship, and Saturday’s racing only served to set the stage for Sunday’s finale and the crowning of this year’s national champions. In the Pro Shifter class, which boasted a stunning grid of 30 karts including 16 of the top-20 from the EKN Driver Rankings, PSL Karting’s Jake French renewed his title hopes after holding back Andrew Bujdoso for the victory. An uncharacteristic mechanical DNF put point leader AJ Myers on the sidelines during the opening lap, which has blown the championship wide open. The X30 Senior title fight remains in the hands of the Rolison Performance Group, and while the team has three drivers vying for the championship, it was one of their drivers not in the title chase Nate Cicero who pulled steadily away from the stacked field to score his first SKUSA Pro Tour victory.
