Superkarts! USA Confirms 2018 SuperNationals 22 Class Structure
Thursday, 28 June 2018 17:00


Superkarts! USA has confirmed the revised class structure for the popular and world-renowned SKUSA SuperNationals for 2018. The model will also guide the 2019 SKUSA ProTour competition program, as SKUSA ushers in the long awaited SKUSA SSE Engine from IAME.

Based on empirical evidence and customer feedback, SKUSA has decided that they will be combining both the senior and masters shifter kart categories into two new classes: ‘Pro Shifter’ and ‘Master Shifter.’ S1 and S2 will now be ‘Pro Shifter’ and S4 and S4SM will now simply be ‘Master Shifter.’

“Naturally, this was a difficult decision to make,” remarked SKUSA president Tom Kutscher. “The opinions are deeply divided on each side of the argument, and some may note that this is the second time we’ve proposed this. We reversed course once in the interests of a vocal minority; however, the entries no longer justify the current class structure.”

Plans in Full Motion for Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 22
Tuesday, 19 June 2018 09:22

It has been just over 200 days since the final checkered flag fell on the Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 21 last November. Planning for the 22nd edition of the world’s most spectacular karting event started even before the cleanup began. This year, the SKUSA SuperNationals makes a trip back to the Rio All-Suite Las Vegas Hotel & Casino on November 14-18, as the facility will host the famed event for the 10th time.

The Superkarts! USA SuperNationals made its first visit to the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in 2002 during the tenure of former CEO Jim Murley. It was the first year that the event debuted in the city itself, moving from its roots at the Las Vegas Karting Center, the storied track located south of the bright lights in Sloan, NV. The SuperNationals returned to the Rio in 2003 before moving to Sam Boyd Stadium for the next four years. In 2008, during the third season of the organization under the leadership of Tom Kutscher, the long-time SKUSA racer/team owner brought the event back to the Rio for an exciting seven-year run. During that time, the SuperNationals welcomed many high-profile drivers, including current Formula One driver Max Verstappen, seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher, NASCAR’s Jamie McMurray and AJ Allmendinger, along with IndyCar’s Will Power, Sebastien Bourdais, Marco Andretti and the late Dan Wheldon. Now, after three years on the other side of the Las Vegas Strip, the SuperNationals returns to the Rio for 2018 and beyond.

The 2018 season for the California ProKart Challenge resumed on June 1-2 as the program visited the CalSpeed Karting Center in Fontana, California. After taking the months of April and May off for the SKUSA Pro Tour SpringNationals, racers from all over the western half of the United States converged on the ‘Grande’ circuit that sits just outside the Auto Club Speedway facility, where many of the southern California karters call home. The total number of racers reached the 150 mark, as the series met the halfway point of the championship chase by putting Round Three into the books.

After a small hiatus for national competition, Superkarts! USA’s flagship regional program, the CaliforniaProKart Challenge, returns to action at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana for Round 3 of the 2018 championship on June 1-2. The popular venue also plays host to the Los Angeles Kart Club (LAKC) and is among a favorite of local competitors, thanks in part to its proximity and wide variety of configurations.
 
While the 2018 championship is only two races in, some early season favorites look poised to make their bid for the regional title. National #2 Billy Musgravecontinues to be the man to beat in the Mad Old Nut / Mad Croc USA Pro S1 category. The MRC factory pilot has not put a wheel wrong since his SuperNationals 21 victory. But Matias Podboj and Brian Keck continue to give chase and will no doubt look to upset the PKC points leader. Musgrave runs well at the paved CalSpeed circuit, so the two will have their work cut out for them.
