Honda Racing/HPD to Sponsor SKUSA SpringNationals
Thursday, 07 April 2011 08:17
Superkarts! USA is excited to release news that the organization will partner with Honda Performance Development (HPD) to kick off the 2011 national karting season. HPD will become the title sponsor of the opening round of the Superkarts! USA Pro Tour, which will now been referred to as the Honda Racing/HPD SpringNationals. The event will take over the Musselman Honda Circuit in Tucson, Arizona on the April 29 – May 1 weekend, bringing the sport’s top TaG and shifter kart drivers together to begin the second running of SKUSA’s national program. As part of their support of the event, HPD will be providing all of the podium finishers in the Stock Moto classes with special product awards, and they will also be offering a contingency program that will be in effect throughout the entire Pro Tour season.

“The entrance of Honda Racing/HPD into our sport last year was an exciting announcement for karting, but I think that their sponsorship of our upcoming SpringNationals is even bigger, because it shows that they’re here to actively support what we do,” comments Tom Kutscher, Superkarts! USA president. “We have an understandable connection with HPD – thanks to our structured ladder of Stock Moto categories – and having them as our title sponsor for the SpringNationals will only serve to strengthen this working partnership.”


As part of their support of this year’s Honda Racing/HPD SpringNationals, HPD will be awarding the top three finishers of each of the four Stock Honda classes (S1, S2, S4, & S5) with a complimentary Honda Racing/HPD Top End Kit. HPD will also be offering contingency monies for the Pro Tour Championship (SpringNationals, SummerNationals, and SuperNationals), which will be allocated at the final event in November.

“HPD is pleased to be the title sponsor of the Honda Racing/HPD SpringNationals,” said Marc Sours, HPD general manager. “Superkarts! USA has done a fantastic job promoting Spec Honda shifter classes, and the SpringNationals is one of their premier events. We believe sponsorship of this event is a great way to kick-off the 2011 race season. Continuing to support the Honda shifter kart community is one of HPD’s long term goals.”

The Honda Racing/HPD SpringNationals are setting up to be a huge launch to the new year, as more than 175 drivers are expected in Tucson. The fields in all eight classes are looking good, and the S2 Semi-Pro Stock Moto and S4 Master Stock Moto classes are fast approaching 40 entries, with the additional categories all seeing growth from the 2010 numbers.
