EKN Exclusive: Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 22 – Preview Series – Mini Swift
Sunday, 04 November 2018 00:00

Cadet racing has been a part of the SKUSA SuperNationals program since 1998 when the Kawasaki 60cc powered K3 Novice shifterkart class ran out at the X-Plex. The gearbox category was part of the famed event until 2005, and it helped to shape many future stars in the sport. Twenty years later, the Mini Swift division has picked up the sword and will be hosting a number of worldwide talents, including world title winners and repeat national champions.

Last year’s SuperSunday Final has an obvious cloud hanging over it, as the top two finishers were removed from the official results following an in-depth engine inspection. One of the drivers removed from the results for an incompliant engine was provisional winner Carson Morgan. The Californian went into the event as the newly-crowned SKUSA Pro Tour champion and came out on top of a great battle on the racetrack. His engine, along with that of runner-up Brent Crews, were deemed to be outside of the Superkarts! USA rule set. Morgan struck back during in the 2018 season, winning his opening race at the SKUSA Winter Series to again prove his considerable abilities behind the wheel. By the end of the season, Morgan (RPM / Kart Republic) had secured his second straight Pro Tour title thanks to winning one of the Finals at all three doubleheader events on the schedule. Additional redemption lies in front of Morgan, who carries the SKUSA #1 plate into Las Vegas once again. Read full story on eKartingNews.com
 
EKN Exclusive: Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 22 – Preview Series – Micro Swift

The Micro Swift category made its debut on the SKUSA Pro Tour in 2016 and at the SuperNationals, as well. International drivers won the first two editions, with Brazilian Vinicius Tessaro and Great Britain’s Vinnie Phillips taking the victories. Both are moving up the Mini Swift ranks for 2018, which sets up the storyline for a third straight new driver to take the top step of the Micro Swift podium on SuperSunday.

You don’t have to look far to find contenders right away, beginning with the top-three from the SKUSA Pro Tour – Max Garcia (KSNA / Kart Republic), Caleb Gafrarar (Parolin), and Ben Maier (Nitro Kart). The trio combined for the six victories, with Gafrarar holding the advantage with three, Maier earning two and Garcia with one. Garcia’s victory was the biggest, as his Sunday win at the SummerNationals clinched the Pro Tour championship for the young Florida driver. Gafrarar also holds the advantage in the experience category, having competed in the two previous editions, placing fourth a year ago. Maier ended up 15th last November, while this year’s event will be the first SuperNationals for Garcia. Read full story on eKartingNews.com
 
SuperNationals 22 Track Layout Confirmed by Superkarts! USA
Thursday, 01 November 2018 08:17

The unofficial theme of the 22nd edition of the Superkarts! USA SuperNationals is that of ‘returning home’. Nine previous editions of the race have been run at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, including the breakout 2002 event which brought the SuperNationals into the city from its former permanent facility home in the desert on the outskirts of Las Vegas. For 2018, the unique location at the Rio will once again welcome over 500 SKUSA competitors from North America and around the world for what is the single biggest karting event in the world. This year, the action begins on Wednesday, November 14 when the karts hit the hotel’s parking lot that faces the famed Las Vegas Strip, with the winners being decided on SuperSunday, November 18.

The development of the SKUSA SuperNationals 22 track layout was once again managed by three guest track designers. The veteran trio of Howie Idelson, Bonnier Moulton, and Wesley Boswell were again selected by SKUSA’s Tom Kutscher to help in the design of the circuit for the 2018 edition of the SuperNationals. A driver with countless victories and championships over his decades of karting, Idelson competed in the first 20 editions of the event before sitting out last year for the first time to focus his son Dane’s program. Moulton is now the only competitor to have raced at all 21 SuperNationals, winning the prestigious event on three occasions. Boswell won the 2003 SuperNationals at the Rio, and remains a key figure in the karting industry.
