In the year 2000, the Master category made its debut at the SuperNationals as the G1 division. The category branched off with the addition of the S4 Master class in parallel with the introduction of the Stock Honda package. The evolution continued in 2016, when the S4 Super Master category was brought onto the national scene to provide drivers 45-years-of-age and older a chance to compete against one another. Current participation numbers have motivated Superkarts! USA to move into a new era for shifterkart racing, combining the Master age groups into one division once again. History from the SuperNationals will be made once karts hit the track on Wednesday in the category, and even more depending on who takes the checkered flag on SuperSunday.

The Master Shifter division has among the most experienced SKUSA racers at the event. Many competitors have been part of SKUSA and the SuperNationals since the beginning. One driver in particular will make his 22nd start at the SuperNats – the only driver to do so – Bonnier Moulton. The ‘ageless one’ stood on the podium at the first SuperNationals in 1997 alongside inaugural winner Alex Barron and the talented Bobby Oergel. Moulton (Tony Kart) remains a fixture in the sport, working with Rolison Performance Group throughout the season when not providing his talents to racers at the grassroots level with MSquared Karting in Utah. Bonnier is not only a co-designer of the circuit for SuperNationals 22, he is also a three-time winner at the event. Moulton’s first victory came in 2004 in the G1 division at the inaugural event at Sam Boyd Stadium. He then went back-to-back in 2011 and 2012 in S4. Moulton has the chance to tie Connor DePhillippi at the top of the SuperNationals winner list with four victories at the Vegas spectacular. Read full story on eKartingNews.com
