The racing season is underway for the California ProKart Challenge with a quick turnaround to host the second event of the 2022 season. On the May 14-15 weekend, the Superkarts! USA regional series returns to the Buttonwillow Raceway Park, site of the opening round last month. The Buttonwillow, California facility will welcome back the racers, this time taking to the 7/10-mile circuit in the clockwise direction. Portions of the $70,000 prize package for the season were handed out last month at the opener, with more to be presented at the popular podium ceremony following the Round Two action as drivers push forward in their championship chases.

Frankie Mossman came away with the Round One victory in the HRT Driver Development KA100 Senior division, but it is Ethan Lampe that leads the championship after one race. Lampe was top qualifier and won the Prefinal, only to finish second to Mossman. Add in the fast lap bonus and Lampe holds a 20-point advantage going into Round Two over Mossman. Third-place finisher Jackson Menchu is third, 60 points out of first. It was a near perfect score for William Rasmussen in the Nash Motorsportz KA100 Junior class. Sweeping the action, he only missed out on the fast lap bonus to leave Round One with a 40-point gap over fast time driver and runner-up Alex Mercado – with third-place finisher Keagan Kaminski sitting third, back by only 10 points more. It was a perfect score for Brian Phillipsen in Round One of the Mike Manning Karting KA100 Master class. Phillipsen holds a 50-point lead over Tim Meyer, with Ronnie Swaim in third going into the second event.

The 2022 California ProKart Challenge is set to begin on the April 23-24 weekend at the Buttonwillow Raceway Park. The 18th season of the program kicks off at the Buttonwillow, California facility, welcoming the Superkarts! USA regional competitors for the opening round of the six-round championship.

The Buttonwillow Raceway Park has been a consistent destination for the California ProKart Challenge, largely due to its central location between NorCal and SoCal. The opening round this year is slated for the national circuit in the counter-clockwise direction, including the popular ‘Spa’ and ‘Le Mans’ section that produce exciting finishes.

This year’s series format will again be a ‘Best 5 of 6 races’, with competitors having the ability to drop one round towards their year-end points total. Following the upcoming season opener, the California ProKart Challenge returns to Buttonwillow on May 14-15 for Round Two in the ‘clockwise’ direction. June welcomes the lone ‘double-header’ weekend, with two rounds contested over the June 24-26 weekend at the CalSpeed Karting facility. The series will take off July and August before visiting the historic Santa Maria Karting Association facility on September 10-11 for Round Five. The final round is a return to CalSpeed on October 1-2. The single-round weekends will feature a full day of practice plus qualifying on Saturday, with Prefinal and Final action contested on Sunday.
