The California ProKart Challenge returns to action for the first time since the beginning of July, gearing up to host Round Five of the championship chase. The Monterey Bay Karters facility in Marina, California on Labor Day weekend will welcome some of the best racers in Superkarts! USA regional racing. The unique course will see racers hitting the track on September 1-2 in the five IAME and six Stock Honda categories, all with championship chases to be defined even further prior to the series finale at the end of September at the Streets of Lancaster Grand Prix.

The championship still remains up for grabs in the Vemme Kart S1 Pro Stock Honda standings. Three-time champion Billy Musgrave has secured three victories and a runner-up finish over the first four rounds; however, SKUSA Pro Tour winner Hunter Pickett has kept it close. The two are only separated by 115 points heading into Round Five, with Round Four winner Matias Podboj needing another victory to put himself back in contention. Formula Works/CompKart X30 Senior championship chase is still in the hands of defending title winner Nicky Hays. The gap is only 108 points in that fight with Round Three victor Michael Avansino as the lead challenger. Andrick Zeen still has an outside shot, needing more podium success with a little help.

EKN Trackside: 2017 Superkarts! USA Pro Tour SummerNationals – Sunday Report

The Superkarts! USA Pro Tour wrapped up a wild run to their eighth season with this weekend’s SummerNationals at the New Castle Motorsports Park. DKC’s Jake French (Sodi Kart) eliminated all doubt that he is the best shifter kart driver in the country when he completed his sweep of the weekend, after international professional Gary Carlton (Formula K) suffered a mechanical DNF. KartSport North America’s Brandon Jarsocrak (Praga) out-gunned Saturday winner Braden Eves (Vemme) for the win in X30 Senior.

Today marked the most dramatic finish to a SKUSA Pro Tour X30 Senior championship chase. It boiled down to defending champion Ryan Norberg (PSL / Birel ART) and 2014 title winner Jake Craig (RPM / Tony Kart). Both were vying to be the first repeat champion in series history, however, both would have to do it from the back of the field. Both were among the lead pack in the Prefinal. Norberg was turned around in the I-70 corner after contact with Craig. That dropped the defending champ down the order while Craig was involved in contact shortly after with Marjin Kremers (PSL / Birel ART). Kremers was removed from the remainder of the event for the questionable contact, as Craig placed 25th and Norberg 38th. Up front, Brandon Jarsocrak (KSNA / Praga) bounced back from his issues Saturday to qualify first and earn the victory in the Prefinal.  Read the full story on eKartingNews.com
