SKUSA Events Update
Friday, 27 March 2020 07:14
First and foremost, SKUSA would like to express our gratitude for everyone’s understanding and demeaner following the mandated cancellation of our WinterNationals at NOLA Motorsports Park just mere weeks ago. We were just as heartbroken as all of you but found comfort in the display of camaraderie throughout the paddock as we all packed up for the trip home.

As we are all aware; our cities, states, country and the world are dealing with the effects of Covid-19 and we all pray the end is near. We hope everyone has been staying safe and healthy, particularly our partners, customers and friends in Italy that have seemingly been hit the hardest.

SKUSA has been busy planning for the near future and would like to share some of what we have been working on.

Our plan for the ‘make-up’ race for NOLA came from the paddock, and we can’t think of a better idea. Understand, this is all contingent on how fast we can resume racing, but this is what we have been working on with UMC and NCMP.

SuperKarts! USA Renews Partnership With Alpinestars For Multi-Year Deal
Sunday, 16 February 2020 18:14

Superkarts! USA has confirmed a multi-year partnership with Alpinestars, a worldwide leader in racing and safety gear. As the ‘official racewear of SKUSA,’ Alpinestars will continue to have a trackside presence and direct hand in ensuring the highest safety standards across all facets of 2020 SKUSA competition. The renewal furthers the initiatives of last year, which saw meaningful strides in enhancing and enforcing proper safety attire for competitors.

SKUSA shares the excitement of the alliance, and the push towards even safer racing. “Great competition is one thing, but I’m a real stickler for driver safety,” explained series principal Tom Kutscher. “Alpinestars’ products are second to none, and we couldn’t ask for a better partner as we usher in a new decade of Superkarts! USA racing.”

Superkarts! USA Announces New Spec Oil And Fuel Combo For 2020 Racing Season
Sunday, 15 December 2019 20:37

As part of an ongoing campaign to improve and enhance SKUSA kart racing, the nation’s premier organization is pleased to announce they will begin using Elf Racing oils for all sanctioned events, beginning with the SKUSA Winter Series in Florida.

Effective immediately, SKUSA will mandate Elf HTX909 SAE 50, which is widely considered to be the very best karting oil on the planet. Furthermore, SKUSA will revert the spec fuel back to the VP MS98 in an effort to promote engine longevity and cost efficiencies for racers.

“This has been a long time coming,” remarked SKUSA’s Tom Kutscher. “It’s no secret that we have been eager to find an oil that not only met, but exceeded the quality we’ve been using. All signs pointed to Elf, which many refer to as the absolute best in the game.”

2019 IKF Sprint GrandNationals Set for Pat’s Acres Racing Complex
Monday, 19 August 2019 10:24

One of the most prestigious trophies in North American karting is the International Kart Federation’s ‘Duffy’. Originally known as the ‘Joe Karter’ award, the 12-inch solid bronze statuette was re-named to honor Frank ‘Duffy’ Livingstone – one of the original pioneers of karting. Each year after 1981, those drivers who were able to claim victory at the esteemed GrandNationals were awarded their own Duffy trophy. The iconic trophy is still a core goal for all members of the IKF, the first kart racing organization and sanctioning body in the United States. Those competing in the sprint karting program will have their next chance to claim a Duffy at the upcoming 2019 IKF Sprint GrandNationals at the Pat’s Acres Racing Complex in Canby, Oregon on September 20-22.

“We are excited to put the focus back into grassroots karting with the IKF,” stated Tom Kutscher, International Kart Federation President. “The IKF is the longest standing organization in our sport, having been created right in our backyard back in 1956. The combination of IKF, the Duffy and racing at the historic Pat’s Acres facility makes the Sprint GrandNationals a unique event for the 2019 season.”
