Honda Performance Development to Award $17,000 Back to Karting for 2012
Friday, 13 April 2012 13:31
A major player in the motorsports industry, Honda Performance Development (HPD) has announced that they will continue their support of the karting ranks. The popular Honda CR125 engine is the backbone of shifterkart racing in the United States and HPD is once again giving back to the karting community with a number of contingency programs for the 2012 season. HPD is working specifically with the Superkarts! USA Pro Tour, California ProKart Challenge, Northwest Karting Challenge, the World Karting Association, the Rock Island Grand Prix and their ‘Spec Honda’ classes. In total, Honda Performance Development will award $17,000 in cash and ‘HPD Bucks’ to racers across the country.

Competitors in the Superkarts! USA Pro Tour Stock Honda categories - S1, S2, S4, and S5 - will have a chance at the $6,400 in cash awards from HPD toward the season championship standings. Each category will see the champion receive $750, vice-champion $500, and third $350. At the SKUSA SuperNationals XVI in Las Vegas, HPD will have an engine raffle for the S2 podium drivers, one to receive a new CR125 Engine Kit, worth $2,500. The California ProKart Challenge, the current longest running SKUSA regional program, will see all five Stock Honda categories (S1 through S5) earn HPD Bucks at the end of the season. The champion in each class will receive $200, runner-up $100, with third place $75. A Honda EU1000i Generator is to be raffled off at the banquet with a new CR125 Top End Kit raffled per event.
MG Tires Announced as Title Sponsor of SKUSA SpringNationals
Friday, 06 April 2012 11:53
To say that MG Tires is a staunch supporter of the Superkarts! USA program is a vast understatement. The partnership between the Brazilian tire manufacturer and U.S. karting’s fastest growing racing organization has been an extremely positive one, and this union will be on display once again as MG Tires has been confirmed as the title sponsor of the third annual SKUSA SpringNationals, the opening race weekend of the 2012 SKUSA Pro Tour. The event is just two weeks away, set for April 20-22 at the Phoenix Kart Racing Association facility in Arizona, and MG has stepped up with an unprecedented prize package that has never before been offered by a tire supplier. MG will be presenting each and every podium finisher, 48 in all over the weekend, with a new set of MG tires as a reward for their top-three performance. This program will provide over $10,000 in value to Superkarts! USA Pro Tour competitors.

“My personal relationship with MG Tires is now in its 12th season, and I’m thrilled that they have come to the plate to support our racers once again, with such an incredible sponsorship package for the SpringNationals,” offered Tom Kutscher, SKUSA President, singing the praises of his tire partner. “Our MG SK-White program is a key component of our program and provides our racers with the best tire in the sport. The new MG-WT rain tire is also strong, and I’m pleased that we now have it in place for 2012 so that we are an all-MG organization. This prize package for our MG Tires SpringNationals podium finishers is beyond crazy, and I hope that our racers realize how cool this is.”

Superkarts! USA Begins Registration for Pro Tour SpringNationals
Thursday, 01 March 2012 11:33
Three months have passed since the record breaking SuperNationals XV completed the 2011 season for the Superkarts! USA organization. Now that the 2012 campaign is here, with plans set in motion for the regional programs across the country, preparation has begun for the third year of the SKUSA Pro Tour, starting with the SpringNationals. The event is set for April 20-22 at the Phoenix Kart Racing Association (PKRA) facility in Glendale, Arizona, as the first two rounds of the five-race championship challenge will set the bar for shifterkart and TaG competition in North America. SKUSA is happy to announce that online registration for the SpringNationals has now been opened.

“We had a great launch to the year at our ProKart Challenge opener at Buttonwillow, and the development of two new regional series is very exciting,” offers Tom Kutscher, SKUSA President. “The momentum is positive from last year’s SuperNats, and based on the feedback we’re getting from teams and drivers, I think this year’s Pro Tour is going to be very strong. Now that the online registration is open, we’ll be able to see which drivers will enter to be part of the program.”
Superkarts! USA Confirms 2011 Pro Tour Champions
Wednesday, 14 December 2011 12:50
The second season of the Superkarts! USA Pro Tour completed last month with the running of the SuperNationals XV in Las Vegas outside the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino. Following a record-breaking event that witnessed over 500 drivers competing, the eight championship categories closed out the final stop of the five round title chase - and decided just who would be part of the SKUSA ‘Circle of Champions.’ In each of the eight divisions, the top three drivers earned the coveted national number plates for the 2012 season in addition to the championship purse.

The two headline categories -- S1 Pro Stock Moto and TaG Senior -- were awarded roughly $18,000 in cash and prizes to split toward their championship fund. Superkarts! USA welcomed its first international driver to its champion alumni in S1. New Zealand’s Daniel Bray locked up the class title at the SuperNationals following a successful 2011 season. The 24-year old was the event winner at the SKUSA SpringNationals with two wins, and while the feature results were not as high as he had hoped, Bray scored the second highest total at the SummerNationals to lead the standings heading into the SuperNationals. Overcoming a mechanical issue in qualifying, Bray fought strong through the heat races and the main event to land third in the main event to secure the title. California driver Tom Dyer was his closest rival throughout the season. The veteran was the top performer at the SummerNationals, but come up just short in the end thanks to an upsetting finish at the SuperNationals to close the year second in the standings. S1 rookie Lukas Johnson was impressive in his first season, standing on the podium in three of the five feature races to earn the #3 plate for the 2012 season.
