The first of three headline categories at the SKUSA SuperNationals 22 is the X30 Senior class. This year, it was one of two categories to sell out, reaching the cap for entries prior to heading into Las Vegas. While it may not be the over 100 drivers we had in 2008, the roster for the 2018 edition is stacked with talent. Reviewing the list, nearly half the field is a contender for the victory on SuperSunday.

You have to start with the former winners in the field. There are four previous winners in the category who have a chance to become the first-ever repeat winner in the class. Defending victor Joshua Car has landed on the podium both times he’s competed at the SuperNationals. The Aussie was third in 2017 before earning the top step last year. Car currently resides in Texas, having competed in the US F4 Championship with Crosslink Competition, the team he will race with at the SuperNationals. This new association has him moving from the CompKart to the Exprit for the 2018 edition of the race. Prior to Car winning on SuperSunday last year it was Jake Craig in 2016. A thrilling victory put the American at the top of the world that year, following an incredible last lap battle. The 2014 SKUSA Pro Tour champion has also gone the open wheel route, racing in F1600 in Canada all season, which helped earn him a spot on the coveted Team USA Scholarship to compete in the UK. Craig (RPM / Tony Kart) opened the season with victory at the WinterNationals on New Orleans and he was leading the SKUSA Pro Tour points heading into the SummerNationals. He was forced to miss the event with a scheduling conflict with his F1600 program. Craig is on his game and will be tough. Read full story on eKartingNews.com
