The second round of the Superkarts!

Arias Deukmedjian (Kart Republic) further cemented his place as an elite driver in the sport, winning both the X30 Senior and KA100 main events. Jeremy Fletcher was not to be denied in X30 Junior, while Brent Crews scored his second win in the Pro Shifter class.

It’s been over four months since the Superkarts! USA staff was trackside for one of their national events, going all the way back to the Pro Tour SummerNationals in August at New Castle Motorsports. When the calendar turned over to a new year, SKUSA pressed the reset button and packed up their circus at its Temecula, CA headquarters and headed east for the fourth edition of their Winter Series at AMR Homestead-Miami Motorplex Presented by MG Tires. The opening round of the two-weekend, four-event series was completed on Saturday under ideal weather conditions in south Florida, and multi-time SKUSA champion Ryan Norberg looked to have stolen the show in the X30 Senior main event, coming from 12th on the grid to score the win. A pushback bumper penalty dropped him to fourth, and elevated Aaron Benoit (Tony Kart) to the big victory. In the KA100 Senior class, Brandon Lemke (Merlin) emerged with the win in a thrilling battle with Hannah Greenemeier (Kosmic), while Kai Sorensen (Parolin) notched his first SKUSA victory with a strong performance in X30 Junior. All in all, penalties played quite the role in the overall outcome.

Norberg was on his game from the get-go, timing in second to Alessandro de Tullio (Parolin) in Rolison Performance Group X30 qualifying, but all did not go perfectly for the four-time Pro Tour champ. Norberg bolted away from the grid for the Prefinal and led the field for an additional pace lap, and was it with a 10-second penalty for ‘manipulating the start’. This dropped him to 12th for the start of the 22-lap final, but he was quickly on the move, advancing forward to take the lead on lap 15. Arias Deukmedjian (Kart Republic) was all over Norberg during the final laps and was primed to pounce on the final circuit. With the leader running the defensive lines through the hairpins, Deukmedjian got a strong run out of the second hairpin to put slightly ahead of Norberg heading to the left-hand turn 10. Deukmedjian was on the outside and tried to move to the apex, but it appeared as though Norberg still had a significant position and contact was made. Deukmedjian went off-track as Norberg continued on to the win, and he then came back on-track in what the officials deemed an unsafe manner.

This weekend – January 8-10 – we will attempt to put away 2020 as we begin the 2021 racing calendar with the launch of the Superkarts! USA Winter Series. The ‘Spring Training’ program begins its fourth season with the opening two rounds at the AMR Homestead-Miami Motorplex presented by MG Tires. Racers and teams will use this weekend to begin the process of setting up their 2021 programs, with those moving to new homes and chassis brands, others graduating up or moving to another category for the new season. All of that begins with the opening weekend of the SKUSA Winter Series around the 7/10-mile AMR circuit in the clockwise direction, welcoming over 200 entries in the nine categories.
