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.

Superkarts! USA Confirms 2018 SuperNationals 22 Class Structure
Thursday, 28 June 2018 16:00


Superkarts! USA has confirmed the revised class structure for the popular and world-renowned SKUSA SuperNationals for 2018. The model will also guide the 2019 SKUSA ProTour competition program, as SKUSA ushers in the long awaited SKUSA SSE Engine from IAME.

Based on empirical evidence and customer feedback, SKUSA has decided that they will be combining both the senior and masters shifter kart categories into two new classes: ‘Pro Shifter’ and ‘Master Shifter.’ S1 and S2 will now be ‘Pro Shifter’ and S4 and S4SM will now simply be ‘Master Shifter.’

“Naturally, this was a difficult decision to make,” remarked SKUSA president Tom Kutscher. “The opinions are deeply divided on each side of the argument, and some may note that this is the second time we’ve proposed this. We reversed course once in the interests of a vocal minority; however, the entries no longer justify the current class structure.”

Plans in Full Motion for Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 22
Tuesday, 19 June 2018 08:22

It has been just over 200 days since the final checkered flag fell on the Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 21 last November. Planning for the 22nd edition of the world’s most spectacular karting event started even before the cleanup began. This year, the SKUSA SuperNationals makes a trip back to the Rio All-Suite Las Vegas Hotel & Casino on November 14-18, as the facility will host the famed event for the 10th time.

The Superkarts! USA SuperNationals made its first visit to the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in 2002 during the tenure of former CEO Jim Murley. It was the first year that the event debuted in the city itself, moving from its roots at the Las Vegas Karting Center, the storied track located south of the bright lights in Sloan, NV. The SuperNationals returned to the Rio in 2003 before moving to Sam Boyd Stadium for the next four years. In 2008, during the third season of the organization under the leadership of Tom Kutscher, the long-time SKUSA racer/team owner brought the event back to the Rio for an exciting seven-year run. During that time, the SuperNationals welcomed many high-profile drivers, including current Formula One driver Max Verstappen, seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher, NASCAR’s Jamie McMurray and AJ Allmendinger, along with IndyCar’s Will Power, Sebastien Bourdais, Marco Andretti and the late Dan Wheldon. Now, after three years on the other side of the Las Vegas Strip, the SuperNationals returns to the Rio for 2018 and beyond.
