Weather Rushes Opening Two Rounds of Midwest ProKart Challenge
Friday, 26 April 2013 08:33
The opening rounds of the 2013 Superkarts! USA Midwest ProKart Challenge were a true challenge – on and off the track – for the competitors who raced to escape the terrible flooding that took place throughout the Great Lakes area last weekend. Flooding was a major concern at the I-55 Raceway in Pevely, Missouri – located alongside the Mississippi River – when officials arrived Friday. With the information in hand, SKUSA elected to condense the two-round schedule from two days into one, with 60 laps of racing facing the drivers. Unfortunately, a number of competitors who planned to compete had to deal with their own personal flooding issues and were forced to miss the event. The racing continued on, as a number of competitors battled around ‘Thunder Valley’ to start out the 2013 season.

Defending S2 Semi-Pro champion Nick Lougee returned, carrying the regional #1 plate and started out the year battling S1 driver Derek Crockett. After a year away from the sport, the 2010 SKUSA Pro Tour S2 Semi-Pro champion returned, committed to contesting the full Midwest PKC. Lougee claimed the pole position and scored the heat one victory. Crockett came through after troubles in the first two on-track sessions to outrun Lougee for the heat two win. In the opening main event, Lougee led the first half with Crockett controlling the second for the overall victory. Lougee would strike back in the second final, leading the entire way as he held off Crockett at the checkered flag. Collin Willis and Jenna Grillo rounded out the S2 podium in both main events, each earning a runner-up finish. The 2012 S5 Junior Stock Moto series champ Erik Nelson began his defense strong, with two victories on the opening weekend. It was nearly a sweep, as Nelson started out on top in qualifying and heat one, but a DNF in heat two dropped him down the order, giving the win to Kyle Kennedy. Nelson bounced back to earn the victory in final one over Kennedy and Max Nufer, and once again in final two, with Nufer earning the runner-up position. Kris Dickson was the lone S4 Master Stock Moto competitor on the weekend, and is expected to see more competition at the next two event weekends.

Superkarts! USA Introduces New Pipe for Stock Moto Categories
Tuesday, 23 April 2013 10:03
Superkarts! USA is pleased to announce the official launch of a new exhaust pipe for the organization’s Stock Moto categories, one that will feature a much more affordable price point and a six-month warranty, an industry first. As of May 24, the new ‘SK-1’ pipe will join the current RLV R4 as a legal spec exhaust that will be allowed for competition in Superkarts! USA sanctioned events. This new product – manufactured by Pro Circuit Racing International – will come with an unprecedented six-month warranty for cracks, effective from the date of purchase – and it will become the sole spec pipe in SKUSA Stock Moto competition in 2014.

“For the last few years, following the closure of RCE Exhaust, a manufacturer that supplied us with one of our initial spec pipes, our Stock Moto program has featured just a single pipe provider,” stated Superkarts! USA CEO Tom Kutscher. “We believe that the single product approach remains the ideal situation, but our racers have been dealing with numerous reliability, quality and availability issues recently, so we felt that it was time to step in and ensure stability in this segment of the Stock Moto equation. By working closely with a new manufacturer, we are presenting a product that we can completely manage and support. We wanted to develop a product that is priced for the karter, and then stand behind it with a warranty, something that is virtually unheard of in the sport. The quality of product that Pro Circuit manufactures is second to none, and they are a professional operation that is committed to motorsports and exhaust production. We’re thrilled to be working with them.”

2013 Schedule Set for Midwest ProKart Challenge
Tuesday, 12 March 2013 13:07
The Superkarts! USA brand is continuing to evolve and grow throughout the United States, and in 2013, there will be an emphasis on revitalizing the original region of the organization. The schedule for the 2013 Midwest ProKart Challenge has been confirmed, as the series will again take place over three weekends. One objective this season will be bringing back the enjoyment and excitement that is shifterkart racing, while providing that same SKUSA-style atmosphere and camaraderie that racers enjoy at other regional programs and on the SKUSA Pro Tour.

“2013 marks the 20th year that racers will bang gears under the Superkarts! USA banner here in the Midwest. Back then, it was a unique group of individuals who had two things in common – a kart with a transmission, and a desire to find others to race it against,” remembers SKUSA National Director Stan Bryniarski, a pre-tech and corner official at that time. “The Midwest is where SKUSA got its beginnings, and I was lucky enough to watch it grow as it did. Now I’m privileged to continue that tradition. It may not happen overnight, but I have no doubt we can make this region grow to what it used to be. I want to send a special thank you to all the racers for your patience and support.”
