With the new dates for the 24th annual SKUSA SuperNationals announced (December 1-5, 2021), SKUSA today revealed more details on the forthcoming event, traditionally scheduled on the week before Thanksgiving. With Caesar’s Entertainment Group forced to move the World Series of Poker to dates previously held by SKUSA, the California based karting promotion was left with no alternative but to move the SuperNationals event two weeks later into the Winter calendar.

SuperKarts! USA Announces Date Change For 24th Annual SKUSA SuperNationals And Exclusivity For Rio All-Suites Hotel And Casino For 2021
Saturday, 24 April 2021 21:39

After a disappointing 2020 which saw SKUSA forced to postpone the SuperNationals due to COVID-19, the Temecula based series is proud to announce more confirmed details for the 24th running of the event in 2021.

First and foremost, the race is 100% a go. However, to accommodate the Rio Hotel’s pandemic reopening schedule, the dates for the 24th SuperNationals will be moved to December 1-5, 2021. The Rio’s contractual commitment to the World Series of Poker forced the schedule change and necessitated SKUSA moving to a different weekend in order to secure the parking lot.

The SKUSA SuperNationals will be the sole karting event at the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino in 2021. We expect a capacity crowd thanks to pent up demand and a year hiatus. We are looking to open pre-entry as early as June and encourage teams and drivers to plan accordingly.

Hotel accommodations and the parking area will see space in short supply. In addition to the race commencing in the parking lot, the Rio will also be hosting a country festival in the convention areas. More details to be announced, pitting will be limited.

The entire Superkarts! USA Team is eager to get back to Las Vegas and is counting down the days until December.

For our SKUSA Mexico racers to the south, please be advised – the 6th round of the championship will be moved to the weekend previously held by the SuperNationals. So, the December 3-5 dates for SKUSA Mexico will be moved to November 19-21, 2021. We have announced a prize package for SKUSA Mexico that includes entries at the 2021 SuperNationals.
 
SUPERKARTS! USA FORCED TO CANCEL PLANS FOR A SUPERNATIONALS REPLACEMENT RACE AMID INSURMOUNTABLE CORONAVIRUS CONCERNS
Sunday, 04 October 2020 20:24
 It’s with heavy hearts that the Kutscher family and Superkarts! USA must announce that there will be no replacement event for SuperNationals 24 this year.

“My team has been working tirelessly, pursuing multiple venues and trying to acquire the necessary permits and approval to host an event in a different location that would still be comparable to a 2020 SuperNationals in Las Vegas,” explained SKUSA owner Tom Kutscher. “In the end, with the fluctuating COVID restrictions and guidelines, it is just impossible to hold an event that would do SKUSA, its teams and competitors, and its world-wide base of loyal supporters justice.”

“Regrettably, all options have now been exhausted, and given the timeframe, budget constraints, and uncertainty surrounding the approach of the winter season, SKUSA is not willing to risk another shutdown, or worse yet – risk contributing to the spread of this inexplicable disease.”

In light of this sad news, SKUSA will recharge and regroup for a strong 2021 – with plans to begin the new racing season in Miami, Florida with the SKUSA Winter Series. In the interim, the SKUSA team will be hosting the 2020 IKF Sprint GrandNationals on October 23-25 at the Santa Maria Karting Association in Santa Maria, CA. For more information on this event, go to ikfkarting.com. Otherwise, be sure to keep an eye on the SKUSA website and Facebook for more details as they develop for the 2021 racing season.

Please stay safe during these challenging times,

Tom Kutscher
 
Fuel Tests - SuperNats 23
Written by John Motley - National Tech Director

We use a Fuel Testing Laboratory with no Motorsports connection to preserve anonymity.

As many of you know we took fuel samples from competitors at the last two Pro Tour events and submitted them to various lab tests. At SuperNats 23 we took 10 samples, mostly from the winners but in some cases farther back in the field. A sample, mixed by us to the correct ratio was also included for comparison.

All samples tested identical to the mandated fuel/oil required.

As background on the testing used, it is a procedure called Mass Spectrometry – which is the same process that Formula One and MotoGP uses for their tests. This allows the sample to be compared to a known sample to determine conformity to our rules. Note that in addition we have also sent samples of supposedly undetectable additives to the lab who easily detected their use – some of these additives contained banned carcinogens.
 
EKN Trackside: Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 23 – SuperSunday Report

For the 23rd time, the Superkarts! USA hosted the big daddy of them all – the SuperNationals. SuperSunday was conducted outside the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino for the 10 race groups, 12 categories after four days of work on and off the track. Throughout the week, over 500 different stories were written, highlighted by personal triumphs or dreams dashed. The dust has settled and for 12 drivers, their story are in the history books as winners of the SKUSA SuperNationals 23.

SuperSunday opened up with one of the categories we knew was going to provide some great drama for 20 laps – KA100 Senior. It went down to the wire last year, and went past the checkered flag this year to decide the second winner of the class. The focus was on pole position driver Brandon Lemke (Franklin / Merlin). Three heat wins put him P1 with Pauly Massimino (MDR / Kosmic) on the outside. The field worked through the opening corners clean until turn 4. Third-place starter Oliver Calvo (LEM / Praga) made a late move inside Lemke, and drove over the front end of the Merlin. The contact dropped Lemke to 13th and we thought out of the race for the victory. The contact put Massimino into the lead, where he paced the field until Aussie Scott Foster (KSNA / KF Kart) took over with Calvo eventually getting up to second. Meanwhile, Lemke was on the charge, reaching the top-five with fast laps of the race and put himself into third, running down the leaders. In the last two laps, Lemke was able to go from third to first, and was able to hold the lead through the final corners to reach the checkered flag first for an amazing comeback performance. Unfortunately, due to what we believe was the opening lap contact, Lemke suffered a pushback bumper penalty of five seconds, dropping him to fifth in the order. This promoted Massimino to the top of the podium for his first SuperNationals victory. Contact between Foster and Calvo in turn eight took them out of the top-five, promoting top qualifier Jake Drew (FW / CompKart) to second, SKUSA Pro Tour champion Austin Osborne (IRM / Tony Kart) to third and Michael Michoff (RPG / Kosmic) to fourth. Hard charger went to Michael Geringer up 25 spots to 10th. His run put three Franklin / Merlin machines in the top-10 with Josh Hotz ninth. Read full story on eKartingNews.com
