EKN Trackside: 2024 Superkarts! USA Pro Tour SpringNationals – Preview
Thursday, 13 June 2024 07:56

Motorsports Country Club of Cincinnati

The 2024 Superkarts! USA Pro Tour resumes this weekend as the 15th season of the organization’s premier championship program heads to the Motorsports Country Club of Cincinnati. The Batavia, Ohio facility will host SKUSA for the first time ever with the 2024 version of the SpringNationals will be contested on June 14-16.

The WinterNationals in March at the Orlando Kart Center in Florida ushered in a new era for the SKUSA Pro Tour. The new ‘Pro Show’ made its debut with the Pro Shifter and Pro X30 division featuring a new format. It will continue at MCC with both categories running the full practice day on Friday with the ‘Semi-Pro’ categories. They will then run a warm-up, qualifying, and two heat races instead of a Prefinal on Saturday. This was done in an effort to provide the drivers with more track time, but also to help space out the schedule for the ‘Semi-Pro’ classes. Sunday will be a warm-up and Final event for the Pro Show. The ‘Semi-Pro’ divisions will be contesting Round Three on Saturday and Round Four on Sunday – including warm-up, qualifying, Prefinal and Final formats.

eKartingNews.com is proud to celebrate the 15th season of the SKUSA Pro Tour, providing trackside coverage for each and every event since the inaugural weekend in April 2010. In addition to the daily reports on the site, follow updates and results on the EKN Social Media channels. Be sure to listen on the live audio call from Saturday and Sunday at www.ekartingnews.com/live or www.ekartingnews.com/radio or on the EKN Radio Network app. Read full story in eKartingNews.com
 
Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 27 Set to Cap Off 2024 Season in Las Vegas

The biggest race in North American karting will celebrate its 27th edition this fall when the Superkarts! USA SuperNationals returns to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway during the week of November 13-17.

After a return to LVMS in 2023, SKUSA will again take their show to the North Las Vegas facility. The 2024 edition features a move of the actual trackside location to the back lot adjacent to where the event was run in 2021. That area of the facility will provide a significant increase in acreage for the SKUSA staff to lay out a new track design and paddock area.

As always, planning and preparations for this year’s event began in the days immediately following the last edition, and SKUSA is excited to get back to Vegas. Registration for this year’s SKUSA SuperNationals will open at 12:00 PM PDT on July 2, 2024. If you’re planning to participate in the race, it is recommended to enter as soon as possible – as SKUSA has confirmed that only four classes will be opened to the expanded 88-entry grid. Those classes set for competition at the SKUSA SuperNationals 27 include Micro Swift, Mini Swift, KA100 Junior, X30 Junior, KA100 Master, Master Shifter, KA100 Senior, Pro X30, and Pro Shifter.

First run in 1997 at the Las Vegas Karting Complex (XPlex), a purpose-built track located just south of Las Vegas on I-15, the SuperNationals quickly became the biggest karting event in North America. Over the last 26 editions, the race has been run at five different venues, including LVKC, the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino, Sam Boyd Stadium, the Las Vegas Convention Center, and the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

The event has enjoyed the participation of the sport’s best from around the world, as well as professional drivers like Michael Schumacher, Will Power, Sebastien Bourdais, Travis Pastrana, Dan Wheldon, Alexander Rossi, and two-time Indy 500 winner Josef Newgarden. Current F1 drivers Max Verstappen, Sergio Perez, Charles Leclerc, George Russell, Lance Stroll, and Logan Sargeant also raced at the SuperNationals on their way to the world stage.

All of the same categories from the 2023 edition of the event will return this November, headlined by the Pro Shifter (KZ) and Pro X30 classes.
 
California ProKart Challenge Visits Santa Maria

Three straight in KA100 Senior for Ethan Lampe (Photo: Andres Malovos - @amalovos)

The California ProKart Challenge traveled to the Santa Maria Karting Association facility over the May 18-19 weekend. The Superkarts! USA regional program contested the third round of the 2024 championship program. Enjoying the coastal weather in Santa Maria, California, the event featured one round of competition over two days of on-track action featuring a practice, qualifying, Prefinal and Final format to complete the first half of the 2024 schedule.

An increase in numbers to 30 drivers was welcomed in the KA100 Senior by P1 Engines class with the same result as the previous two rounds. Ethan Lampe came away with his third straight main event victory in the category, completing a sweep in Santa Maria. He began with the fast time in qualifying, posting a 49.137-lap and edging out Aiden Kempf by a slim 73 thousandths. The top two qualifiers exchanged the top spot in the Prefinal before a red flag ended the race after eight laps with Lampe earning the race win. It was a wire-to-wire performance in the main event as Lampe led all 24 laps to claim a third straight victory in 2024. Jackson Menchu won the battle for second over Kempf, with Keagan Kaminski placing fourth with the fast lap of the race. Izaac Gutierrez completed the top-five.

Year 20 of the California ProKart Challenge will complete the first half of the championship chase when the series heads to the Santa Maria Kart Track on the May 18-19 weekend. The first two rounds of the 2024 Superkarts! USA regional series were held at the Buttonwillow Raceway Park, and now the program heads to Santa Maria near the Pacific Coast for Round Three.

Home of the Santa Maria Karting Association, the 7/10-mile circuit has been a longtime fixture for the California ProKart Challenge – located just minutes away from the Pacific Ocean. The challenging 13-turn course will be contested in the counterclockwise direction. The single round weekend format will continue in Santa Maria with five practice sessions on Saturday wrapped up with qualifying at the end of the day. A warm-up precludes the Prefinal and Final sessions on Sunday for the championship categories.

The second event of the 2024 California ProKart Challenge was contested on the April 20-21 weekend with the series returning to the Buttonwillow Raceway Park. Running the Buttonwillow, California circuit in the reverse direction from the opening round event in March, the Superkarts! USA regional program hosted Round Two of the six-round championship program for the eight categories competing. This time around featured a handful of repeat winners while others stood on the podium for the first time in 2024.

The KA100 Senior by P1 Engines class, featuring 28 drivers, saw Ethan Lampe complete the sweep in Round Two. In a last-to-first performance at the series opener, Lampe helped his push to defend his 2023 class championship with maximum points on the weekend. Lampe cleared the field by over a tenth in qualifying before leading all 12 laps of the Prefinal. He fell to third at the start of the Final with Jackson Menchu and Aiden Kempf jumping ahead. Lampe moved to second at the halfway point and assumed the lead on lap 13. Leading the remaining 10 laps, Lampe scored a second straight victory, crossing the line by over one-second ahead of Menchu and Kempf. Ayden Aquino and 2023 KA100 Junior champion Keagan Kaminski completed the top-five.
