The 2008 SuperNationals brought the event back to the RIO for the first time since 2003. It also welcomed the return of multiple Junior classes to the event, after S5 Junior Stock Honda was the only Junior category offered in 2007. In fact, in 2006, the SuperNats’ class line-up was adult classes only, offering no options for drivers under the age of 15. The introduction of TaG Junior attracted 48 drivers and since then, the category has been among the largest classes at the SuperNationals. The event has also been part of the racing resume for some very famous drivers, including current Formula One pilots George Russell (2011) and Lance Stroll (2012). 2015 Junior world karting champion Logan Sargeant – the only American to win that title – won at the SuperNationals in this category in 2014 and raced this season in the FIA Formula 3 Championship. In fact, all 11 of the previous winners have moved on to race in cars, including last year’s victor Jeremy Fairbairn. This opens the door for a new name to be etched in the record books as the X30 Junior winner. Read full story on eKartingNews.com
