Superkarts! USA threw the green flag on its 2020 season this past weekend at the AMR Homestead-Miami Motorplex Presented by MG Tires, kicking off the third edition of the organization’s Winter Series in south Florida. The event set an series attendance record with over 240 entries, including the new inclusion of the popular Margay Ignite program. Warm temperatures in the high-70s and low-80s were accompanied by significant winds and a brief rain shower on Sunday, and the competition was good as it’s been with some truly epic battles for race wins. Canadian Patrick Woods-Toth (Prime / Birel ART) outgunned X30 Senior National #1 Ryan Norberg (RPG / Kosmic) in Saturday’s main event to score the win, while RPG’s Hannah Greenemeier (Kosmic) turned in a career performance to star in Sunday’s final. In the premier gearbox category – Pro Shifter – Mike Rolison’s lead shifterkart driver Kyle Wick ( RPG / Tony Kart) proved his worthiness of running the #1 plate by beating four-time SKUSA SuperNationals winner Bill Musgrave (MRC / Croc Promotion) to win both Saturday and Sunday main events. The Sunday final was particularly thrilling. More on that later.

A massive field of 53 drivers took the track for Saturday’s split X30 Senior qualifying sessions and Norberg came out of the gate on fire, winning the overall pole and then topping his Prefinal to lead the field to the green flag in the 22-lap main event. SKUSA split the X30 field into two Prefinals after qualifying, transferring 15 drivers directly to the main event. The remaining drivers ran a 10-lap Last Chance Qualifier, with 14 drivers extending their day into the final. Sebastian Montoya (Tony Kart) won the first Prefinal on Saturday over Thomas Nepveu (Birel ART) and Bryson Morris (Kosmic). Norberg was followed to the checkered in his Prefinal by Woods-Toth and Greenemeier. Read full story on eKartingNews.com
