EKN Exclusive: Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 24 – Preview Series – KA100 Junior

The KA100 Junior class was introduced at the SuperNationals in 2018, producing two amazing races on SuperSunday. The previous winners include Ferrari Driver Academy pilot James Wharton from Australia who will be racing Italian F4 in 2022, and 2019 victor Brent Crews – already moved to Senior level racing this season. This makes the 2021 field unique with no former SuperNationals winner in the field, including the lower levels, for the sold-out 46-driver field.

Three different drivers won in 2021 at the SKUSA Pro Tour, including series champion Carson Morgan three times in six rounds, who is moving up to the Senior level ranks at SuperNationals 24. Noah Baker (Supertune / Tony Kart) doubled up at the WinterNationals in the win column, however, ended up as vice-champion despite never returning to the podium. Austin Jurs (FMS / Redspeed) is the other winner on the season, taking his first SKUSA Pro Tour triumph at the SpringNationals. Jurs ended up P3 in the final standings, adding a Route 66 Sprint Series title to his 2021 CV. The Illinois driver finished on the podium at the SuperNationals in 2019, placing third in Mini.

EKN Exclusive: Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 24 – Preview Series – Mini Swift

Like the Micro Swift category, the Mini Swift division will welcome a first-time winner at the SuperNationals on SuperSunday. The 66-driver field is full of young talent, many we have seen over the course of the 2021 season compete at the front to provide a full slate of contenders for this year’s SuperNationals. Less than half of the field has competed at the SuperNats in the past, making this a rookie filled roster that is one-third international drivers.

One name that has stood out throughout the season in Enzo Vidmontiene (Benik). Three wins in the first four rounds of the SKUSA Pro Tour helped the Florida driver secure enough points on the season to claim his first series championship. Enzo also secured the title at the United States Pro Kart Series, and vice-champion of the Florida Winter Tour. Vidmontiene is among the more experienced Mini drivers, having competed in Vegas twice in the Micro division, finishing 8th in 2019. Read full story on eKartingNews.com
 
EKN Exclusive: Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 24 – Preview Series – Micro Swift

A fifth name will be added to the history books on SuperSunday when the final checkered flag waves for the Micro Swift main event. The sold out 48-driver field features no former winner, with all but three drivers making their SuperNationals debut. In the past, the Micro drivers have kept their heads on over the course of the event with no major issues. We hope to see the same for the international field, including six different countries with 16 drivers from outside the USA.

Of the three drivers returning, one includes the 2021 SKUSA Pro Tour champion Gianmatteo Rousseau (Nitro Kart). Rousseau came away with the series championship based off the two wins from the WinterNationals. He went podium-less the remainder of the season. Third in the standings for 2021 was Tristan Murphy (Nitro Kart). Murphy picked up his first Pro Tour victory at the SpringNationals, landing on the podium two more times and also won the California ProKart Challenge championship.

SuperNats24: Mission Possible - SuperKarts! Announces Forced Venue And Host Hotel Change For Upcoming SKUSA SuperNationals December 01-05, 2021
Monday, 15 November 2021 22:01

After many days of speculation, Superkarts! USA can finally confirm that they have been forced to change venues and host hotel for the upcoming SKUSA SuperNationals 24. The move comes on the heels of the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino electing to cancel their longstanding contract for 2021, just days before the scheduled event.

With an enforceable contract in hand, SKUSA pursued legal remedies to fight the hotel’s cancellation, including filing motions for a cease and desist and legal injunctions to prevent their termination of the contract.

“A courtroom is never a place any promoter wants to find themselves,” explained a frustrated Tom Kutscher. “While SKUSA’s legal team was confident the courts would uphold our contract and the Rio would be forced to honor the deal, the regrettable truth is that there are never guarantees in any lawsuit. With an entire industry reliant upon this race for revenue, it became increasingly harder to hold out for lawyers to do their thing. My worst nightmare was a scenario where we had no time to pursue an alternative plan in the off-chance courts didn’t rule our way. The race must take place, no matter what!”

As a result of the canceled contract, SKUSA has worked around the clock to find a suitable alternative — in Las Vegas, that had enough space to accommodate a proper SuperNationals. The venue had to accommodate a racetrack with 500+ drivers and supporting space for event infrastructure. This proved to be no easy feat, considering the short notice and other unrelated events in town the same weekend. After careful consideration, and with safety as the guiding factor, SKUSA can confirm they will be moving this year’s SuperNationals to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

SKUSA To Officially Adopt Aspen Sport As New Spec Racing Fuel In An Effort To Promote Safer And Cleaner Solutions For Racers And The Environment
Monday, 08 November 2021 01:00

Superkarts! USA today announced they will adopt Aspen SPORT as the official racing fuel for SKUSA competition, beginning with this December’s 24th annual SKUSA SuperNationals. The move comes after extensive research and multiple fuel tests, comparing the Aspen SPORT product to previous offerings in the marketplace.

Aspen is a global leader in producing clean fuels throughout the world, and a longtime market leader in the Scandinavian marketplace. This is in large part to Aspen’s commitment to producing the cleanest and safest fuel possible, with audited research and testing to validate their claims.

SKUSA underwent and performed a neutral comparison test of their own, after the SKUSA SpringNationals. A third-party research company audited and measured Aspen fuels to that of the competition, with results showing an undeniable advantage for Aspen.
