EKN Trackside: 2024 Superkarts! USA Pro Tour SpringNationals – Sunday Report

The 2024 edition of the Superkarts! USA Pro Tour SpringNationals wrapped up on Sunday at the Motorsports Country Club of Cincinnati. A hot and sunny day at the Batavia, Ohio facility with Round Four action for the ‘Semi-Pro’ divisions was contested along with the main events for the SKUSA Pro Show divisions. The tight confines of the MCC KartPlex showed today with multiple red flag incidents to delay the action on the day. In the end it was PSL Karting’s Matheus Morgatto coming through for a second straight Pro Shifter triumph while British driver Kai Hunter invaded the USA for the first time to steal the Pro X30 victory.

Morgatto (PSL / Birel ART) was improving as the weekend continued, making his first start in the PSL Karting Pro Shifter class at MCC. The former FIA Karting World Champion was starting third behind top qualifier and two-time heat race winner AJ Myers (Magik Kart USA) and Kyle Wick (GFC Karting) on the front row. Wick grabbed the holeshot from Myers to begin the 25-lap race, however, Myers reclaimed the top spot before the lap was over. Morgatto pushed Wick back to third on lap two and began pressuring Myers for the lead. The move was made on lap seven, as the top two drivers inched away from the rest of the field. They would run 1-2 the entire distance with Myers waiting until the final lap to put on the pressure. Through the final section of the track, he was on his bumper, literally, going into the left hand carousel. Morgatto was defensive, holding the spot through the final two corners and winning the race to the line for a second straight SKUSA Pro Tour victory. Wick was pressured by a charging Billy Musgrave (Factory Kart) until the spark plug boot popped off with four laps remaining. This allowed Gavin Bayliff (Trinity / Kart Republic) to advance up to fourth from the 11th spot. He however would not be cleared through tech, promoting Ian Quinn (PSL / Birel ART) up to fourth behind Wick with Tahlon Yockel (Sodi Racing USA) classified fifth.

The opening day of racing for the 2024 Superkarts! USA Pro Tour SpringNationals went into the books on Saturday at the Motorsports Country Club of Cincinnati. The Batavia, Ohio facility has gone all out in welcoming the organization for the first time, welcoming over 200 entries in the eight categories. The Semi-Pro divisions completed the third round of the 2024 championship program while the Pro categories completed qualifying and two heat races to set up for their main event on Sunday. The highlight on the day was second victory in three rounds thus far for Trinity Karting Group driver Finnegan Bayliff in the KA100 Senior division.

Ohio driver James Overbeck (BJR / Tony Kart) led the way in the Sodi Racing USA KA100 Senior qualifying session, posting a 58.217-lap to edge out Steven Miller (Nash / EOS). They were among a busy front pack in the Prefinal that ended up with Miller escaping with the win. It was the same group at the front of the field in the 20-lap Final. Round One winner Finnegan Bayliff (Trinity / Kart Republic) was able to secure the top spot by lap 14, leading the remainder of the race to earn his second SKUSA Pro Tour race in the last three starts. Overbeck won the battle for second with Keagan Kaminski (FW / GFC) overcoming a wrecked chassis in Friday practice to end up on the podium in third. Miller and Connor Ferris (TFR / Kart Republic) – coming up from 17th – completed the top-five.

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.

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.

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.
