Pro Kart Challenge California Confirms Venue Change For Championship Finale Of 2020 Season
Thursday, 20 August 2020 09:54
After what can only be described as a crazy and unprecedented racing season, Superkarts! USA has confirmed an official venue change for their 6th and final round of the 2020 ProKart Challenge California series championship.

Regrettably, Lancaster city officials have confirmed they will not be able to conduct the popular Lancaster Grand Prix season-ending street race and city-wide festival, due to Los Angeles County pandemic mandates and mitigation restrictions. However, SKUSA has managed to book the final regional event for the same weekend at Buttonwillow Raceway Park in Buttonwillow, California.

“There’s no sugar-coating it,” remarked a disappointed Tom Kutscher. “The Streets of Lancaster Grand Prix has been the highlight of the ProKart Challenge regional calendar for many years. To say that COVID-19 has disrupted this year’s racing schedule would be an understatement. That said, the show must go on – and we realize there are championships to decide and teams and racers that rely on us to conduct and promote top-level events. In compliance with county and state officials, we are more than confident in our ability to hold a successful season finale at Buttonwillow Raceway.”

The unique and grueling grind of the 2020 Superkarts! USA Pro Tour ended on Sunday with the sixth and final round of competition contested at the New Castle Motorsports Park. The karting circus that began on August 6 in New Castle, Indiana came to a close with teams and competitors leaving during the evening hours. The day began with a humid overcast but northernly winds helped to push them away to sunny skies and much more comfortable temperatures then any of the previous rounds. On track, drivers left it all out on the track in hopes of moving themselves onto the championship podium, or to grab their best result of the 10-day marathon. Read full story on eKartingNews.com

The 2020 Superkarts! USA Pro Tour Summer Festival reached the penultimate round of the unique triple header, double-weekend format at the New Castle Motorsports Park. Round Five was contested around the ‘Reverse National’ course of the New Castle, Indiana facility on ‘Situation Saturday’ as the championship chases were either more defined, and for some, already locked up before heading into the series finale. Wet weather stayed away all day, providing perfect racing conditions for the 12 categories and eight race groups.

Coming off four wins in the opening weekend, Bryson Morris (RPG / Kosmic) was shut out of the podium in both X30 Senior and KA100 Senior on Friday for Round Four. Top-five finishes helped to keep the championship chases in good position heading into Saturday. Morris started the day with a stellar drive in the KA100 class. A pushback bumper penalty put him seventh on the grid for the main event. He fought his way up to third and was trailing the lead duo of Arias Deukmedjian (KSNA / WPK) and Luca Mars (SCR / Redspeed) by 1.5 seconds. Morris was able to reel them in with two laps remaining. Mars and Morris worked past Deukmedjian heading to the white flag and then Morris took the lead on the final circuit at the I-70 corner. Fighting for second behind him allowed Morris to drive away to the checkered flag for his third victory in five rounds, clinching the championship with one round remaining. Deukmedjian crossed the line in second but was penalized three seconds for jumping the start. That put Mars up to second, and Brandon Lemke (Franklin / Merlin) to third on the podium. Terrin Odom (MDR / Kosmic) was promoted to fourth and Hayden Jones (Nitro / Tony Kart) finishing fifth as Deukmedjian fell to sixth. Read full story on eKartingNews.com

The final weekend of the 2020 Superkarts! USA Pro Tour is underway as Friday hosted the fourth round of the championship chase. Teams and drivers remained at the New Castle Motorsports Park since the end of the opening weekend on Sunday, returning on-track Wednesday for unofficial practice. Official practice on Thursday provided two days of testing on the new ‘Reverse National’ layout, utilized for the first time in SKUSA competition. Today, despite forecast throughout the weekend, was dry with overcast skies before they cleared by the end of the main events. The second half of the championship chases began with drivers establishing themselves further into the hunt or moving themselves up the order to challenge come Sunday.

The third and final day of action to open the Superkarts! USA Pro Tour Summer Festival was conducted on Sunday at the New Castle Motorsports Park. Weather at the New Castle, Indiana facility was the warmest it had been all weekend long, with a rise in humidity but clear skies throughout the day to contest Round Three of this year’s championship program Eight race groups and 12 categories battle throughout the day for a unique third round of racing in the same weekend. For the quicker categories, it was about survival and hoping to end the weekend on a high note. For the classes on the harder Evinco tires, it was hoping tire strategy played out to end the weekend with success. In the end, Rolison Performance Group driver Bryson Morris won four of the six main events on the weekend in X30 Senior and KA100 Senior while Magik kart swept the victories with all three drivers earning a victory, today finding AJ Myers at the top of the podium.
