The California ProKart Challenge traveled to the Santa Maria Karting Association facility over the May 18-19 weekend. The Superkarts! USA regional program contested the third round of the 2024 championship program. Enjoying the coastal weather in Santa Maria, California, the event featured one round of competition over two days of on-track action featuring a practice, qualifying, Prefinal and Final format to complete the first half of the 2024 schedule.

An increase in numbers to 30 drivers was welcomed in the KA100 Senior by P1 Engines class with the same result as the previous two rounds. Ethan Lampe came away with his third straight main event victory in the category, completing a sweep in Santa Maria. He began with the fast time in qualifying, posting a 49.137-lap and edging out Aiden Kempf by a slim 73 thousandths. The top two qualifiers exchanged the top spot in the Prefinal before a red flag ended the race after eight laps with Lampe earning the race win. It was a wire-to-wire performance in the main event as Lampe led all 24 laps to claim a third straight victory in 2024. Jackson Menchu won the battle for second over Kempf, with Keagan Kaminski placing fourth with the fast lap of the race. Izaac Gutierrez completed the top-five.

Year 20 of the California ProKart Challenge will complete the first half of the championship chase when the series heads to the Santa Maria Kart Track on the May 18-19 weekend. The first two rounds of the 2024 Superkarts! USA regional series were held at the Buttonwillow Raceway Park, and now the program heads to Santa Maria near the Pacific Coast for Round Three.

Home of the Santa Maria Karting Association, the 7/10-mile circuit has been a longtime fixture for the California ProKart Challenge – located just minutes away from the Pacific Ocean. The challenging 13-turn course will be contested in the counterclockwise direction. The single round weekend format will continue in Santa Maria with five practice sessions on Saturday wrapped up with qualifying at the end of the day. A warm-up precludes the Prefinal and Final sessions on Sunday for the championship categories.

The second event of the 2024 California ProKart Challenge was contested on the April 20-21 weekend with the series returning to the Buttonwillow Raceway Park. Running the Buttonwillow, California circuit in the reverse direction from the opening round event in March, the Superkarts! USA regional program hosted Round Two of the six-round championship program for the eight categories competing. This time around featured a handful of repeat winners while others stood on the podium for the first time in 2024.

The KA100 Senior by P1 Engines class, featuring 28 drivers, saw Ethan Lampe complete the sweep in Round Two. In a last-to-first performance at the series opener, Lampe helped his push to defend his 2023 class championship with maximum points on the weekend. Lampe cleared the field by over a tenth in qualifying before leading all 12 laps of the Prefinal. He fell to third at the start of the Final with Jackson Menchu and Aiden Kempf jumping ahead. Lampe moved to second at the halfway point and assumed the lead on lap 13. Leading the remaining 10 laps, Lampe scored a second straight victory, crossing the line by over one-second ahead of Menchu and Kempf. Ayden Aquino and 2023 KA100 Junior champion Keagan Kaminski completed the top-five.

The 20th season of the California ProKart Challenge will continue on the April 20-21 weekend with a return to the Buttonwillow Raceway Park. The Superkarts!

This time, competitors will contest the 11-turn, 7/10-mile circuit in the clockwise direction.

Over 30 drivers battled in the KA100 Senior by P1 Engines division as 2023 series champion Ethan Lampe was able to go from last to first in an amazing performance to grab the victory. Despite the run, he sits seventh in the points after the opening round – with Jackson Menchu leading the standings ahead of 2023 Junior champion Keagan Kaminski and Alexander Gonzalez. Payton Westcott enjoyed her first series victory in the KA100 Junior by SuperSpeed Bearings class. She leads the standings ahead of Dean Pedersen and Matthew Cagle after 23 drivers contested the opening round.

The 2024 California ProKart Challenge hosted the first event of the season on March 23-24 at Buttonwillow Raceway Park in central California. Weather was a key factor on the weekend in Buttonwillow with rain threatening the opening round action of the 2024 championship program. The staff, teams and competitors worked together to push through the event schedule to avoid heavy rain toward the end of the main events, nearly getting every race in before the precipitation began falling heavily.
