Junior-level racing has been part of the SuperNationals from its very beginning, back when the organization featured a heavy emphasis on 80cc shifterkart competition. Then, in 2006, Tom Kutscher took over ownership of SKUSA and focused on the adult classes only for the 10th running of the event. At the 2007 SuperNationals, SKUSA added the S5 Junior Stock Honda class, and then in 2008, TaG Junior made its debut. Every year since, a new driver has stood on top of the podium, representing four different countries. Among those to earn victory on SuperSunday are two current Formula 1 drivers – British talent George Russell in 2011 and the impressive Canadian Lance Stroll the following year.

During the first eight years of the TaG Junior category, which is now the X30 Junior class, no driver has repeated to log that second victory. In 2018, there are two drivers who have a chance to etch their name in the history books as the first two-time winner in the division. The first is 2016 victor Tyler Gonzalez. The Florida driver won in his SuperNationals debut, however, he was unable to compete for victory the following year, placing 15th. That checkered flag went to Texan Jak Crawford. The 13-year-old started on pole and duplicated Gonzalez’ feat of winning in his Junior debut at the SuperNationals. Both have even more experience under their belts this time around, with Gonzalez leaving his spot at CRG Nordam to run under the Team Benik program in Vegas. Crawford joins the same Nash Motorsportz operation that he has been winning with since his Cadet days. Read full story on eKartingNews.com
