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.”

Tuesday, 08 January 2019 12:19

Superkarts! USA today announced a renewed partnership with Bell Racing USA to promote Bell Helmets as the official helmet of SKUSA. The move serves as a step forward for the Temecula, California-based karting organization as they progress towards modernizing safety standards across the sport of kart racing.

“Those with a long memory will remember a similar partnership announcement in the past,” explained SKUSA principal Tom Kutscher. “Bell is a name that’s second to none. I wore their helmets as a racer. Sold them as a team owner. And have the utmost respect for the brand and the quality of product they produce as a promoter. There have been partnership attempts in the past that never lived up to the hype. We feel this time around, we have the right pieces in place to do it properly.”

For over 20 years, Superkarts! USA has been part of the sport of karting in the United States, and the organization formed its own Hall of Fame in 2016 to begin honoring those who have played key roles in its history. This year, SKUSA is proud to announce that the late Fausto Vitello will be inducted into the Hall of Fame to honor his tremendous contributions to not only the organization, but to karting as a whole. Vitello, who passed away from a heart attack in 2006, was the founder of Trackmagic Racing Karts, the San Francisco-based chassis manufacturer that pushed the envelope for American kart builders through 100% commitment to innovation and its culture. Vitello will be joined in the Hall of Fame by SKUSA’s own Stan Bryniarski, who has been a cornerstone workhorse and crusader of the organization for 20 years as a Regional Director, Race Director and now, the current National Director of Operations.
