The opening round of the 2019 Superkarts! USA Winter Series enjoyed beautiful blue skies and mid-70s temperatures at the AMR Homestead-Miami Motorplex Presented by MG Tires on Saturday, as the track played host to over 230 drivers to kick off the new season. A strong field of over 50 competitors in X30 Senior was topped by reigning world champion Lorenzo Travisanutto (Kart Republic), who passed SKUSA #1 driver Ryan Norberg (Kosmic) on the final lap. In Pro Shifter, AJ Myers (Croc Promotion) was absolutely perfect all day as he held off the constant pressure of his chief rival Billy Musgrave (Aluminos).

In PSL Karting X30 Senior, Travisanutto was not the dominant force throughout the day. That honor belonged to Norberg, who was intent on paying off Mike Rolison for the confidence that the team owner showed in signing the reigning SKUSA champ for the 2019 season after he ‘parted ways’ with PSL Karting. Norberg dominated qualifying, topping impressive Senior rookie Arias Duekmedjian (Praga) by over a tenth. Canadian Patrick Woods-Toth was very quick as well, timing in third ahead of Jesus Rios Jr. (SoloKart) and Arthur Leist (Birel). Norberg and Rio won the two Prefinals that split the grid, qualifying the top-15 from each in the main. Felipe Nicoletti (Tony Kart) won the LCQ to start 31st in the main.

The 2019 karting season officially gets underway this weekend as the first event of the new year calendar is set to take place. Superkarts! USA has taken that honor for the last two years, as the second edition of the SKUSA Winter Series opens on January 11-13 at the AMR Homestead-Miami Motorplex Presented by MG Tires in South Florida. The popular track will welcome over 230 entries in 11 categories to tackle the 12-turn, 7/10-mile course located in the shadows of Homestead-Miami Speedway.

The EKN Trackside Live coverage during the weekend will hit all of our platforms, including our EKN Social Media pages, as well as our live broadcast which will be available at www.ekartingnews.com/live. Those not in attendance can listen to the race call while viewing the live timing as the event unfolds. The EKN Live program is possible thanks to our broadcast partners Courtney Concepts, Rolison Performance Group and Alan Rudolph Racing Academy.

The big story of the event is the competition debut of the new IAME SSE engine through Superkarts! USA in the Pro Shifter and Master Shifter divisions. The 175cc, six-speed engine has been in development for over two years as SKUSA looks to provide the shifterkart engine of the future. Teams and drivers have been grabbing up engines and testing aggressively since they hit the market in late 2018, all in preparation for this season. 2018 SKUSA Pro Tour champion AJ Myers begins the 2019 season carrying the prestigious #1 SKUSA plate aboard his Mad Old Nut / Mad Croc machine. Myers has the home track advantage and will be tough to beat. Top contenders include Florida driver Mathias Ramirez, who is making his return to PSL / Birel ART for 2019. \ 2018 SKUSA Winter Series S2 Semi-Pro Stock Honda champion Rory van der Steur (CPI / Tony Kart), SKUSA #2 plate holder Kyle Wick (CRG Nordam) and Texas ProKart Challenge champion Max Hewitt (CRG Nordam) are among the young guns taking part in the IAME SSE debut. IndyCar and IMSA driver Sage Karam showed well in his return to karting at the SuperNationals last November, and he is back with iKart in his SKUSA Winter Series debut.

Superkarts! USA Announces Renewed Partnership With Bell Racing USA
Tuesday, 08 January 2019 12:19

Superkarts! USA today announced a renewed partnership with Bell Racing USA to promote Bell Helmets as the official helmet of SKUSA. The move serves as a step forward for the Temecula, California-based karting organization as they progress towards modernizing safety standards across the sport of kart racing.

“Those with a long memory will remember a similar partnership announcement in the past,” explained SKUSA principal Tom Kutscher. “Bell is a name that’s second to none. I wore their helmets as a racer. Sold them as a team owner. And have the utmost respect for the brand and the quality of product they produce as a promoter. There have been partnership attempts in the past that never lived up to the hype. We feel this time around, we have the right pieces in place to do it properly.”

Revision to X30 Header/Flex Rule Posted 13 December 2018
Friday, 21 December 2018 11:18

We recently posted a change to the allowed Header/Flex length rule. After receiving additional input from tuners, competitors and engine builders we have decided to standardize the length for all X30 classes to 17” MINIMUM. Note that this change will be in effect at the Winter Series Rounds1 and 2.

This measurement is taken from the outside of the header flange (not the engine side) around the right side of the header, Flex and exhaust to the weld at the first divergent cone. Measurement is taken with exhaust as installed on kart.

A reminder that SKUSA rules do not allow solid connectors, flex must be used as supplied with engine.
