SuperKarts! USA Giving Back To The Drivers Despite A Difficult Year
Tuesday, 01 December 2020 16:42
In what can only be described as a difficult year for the sport, Superkarts! USA is pleased to confirm and verify the prizes they gave out for the 2020 season. Earlier in the year, the Temecula based company vowed to give back even more to the racers. Despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, the series is proud to have made good on that commitment.

Many have asked what exactly we give back to the drivers and “we’re beyond proud to confirm we gave out nearly $300,000 in cash, prizes, and entry credits,” remarked Tom Kutscher. “It’s one thing to say it, but it’s another thing entirely to do it. In an era where we’re aiming to be more transparent with our racers, we felt it was very important to let people see the prizes we awarded.”

For anyone interested, the full breakdown is here and includes some of the following highlights:

Open Letter from Tom Kutscher
Thursday, 07 May 2020 07:37

In the midst of these unprecedented times, I wanted to take a moment and share my open and honest thoughts with you. Needless to say, this pandemic is something that turned not only karting on its head, but also every facet of our personal lives. For many in the sport, COVID-19 has disrupted not only the thing we love, but our livliehoods and ability to provide for our families. SKUSA has weathered recessionary conditions before, most recently the financial challenges our country faced during the mortgage crisis. While we always planned and strategized for financial downturns, nobody ever envisioned a situation like this.

This entire ordeal has left more questions than answers, and regrettably I am left with the same uncertainty as a promoter that you may feel as a team, shop, or participant. The future and our ability to host any future race is largely dictated by everchanging local, state, and federal guidelines. Like you, we have no income coming in. And we empathize with everyone facing the challenges of the current situation. SKUSA employs many people, including staffers, contractors, and local event workers. We are very proud to say we have worked incredibly hard to provide our full-time employees with uninterrupted income during this period. It has not been easy, and there was no stimulus check sent our way. That said, our philosophy has always been we are only as good as the team around us. We know motorsports as a whole will undoubtedly suffer some losses or businesses being forced to close. We feel it imperative to help out those who have been paramount to our success over the years.

SKUSA Events Update
Friday, 27 March 2020 08:14
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 19:14

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 21:37

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.”
