The California ProKart Challenge allowed its racers to stretch out their karting machines for the second round of the 2018 season. On March 30-31, the Superkarts! USA flagship regional program visited the Streets of Willow course at the Willow Springs International Raceway facility in Rosamond, California. The 1.6-mile course – with a reduced layout for X30 Junior and Swift drivers – took racers away from the normal karting track and onto a road course, reaching the highest speeds of the season. The 12 categories were put together into four race groups on the day, sticking with the same qualifying, two heats, and main event format. A number of classes were swept on the day, while others went down to the wire.

All six Stock Honda categories took to the Streets of Willow circuit in a combined race group throughout the day, putting 50 karts on track to make every session a busy one. At the front of the field all day was Billy Musgrave. The four-time series champion and SuperNationals 21 victor swept the Mad Old Nut S1 Pro Stock Honda class, but it was not easy. Musgrave cleared the entire race group by half a second with a 1:15.311-lap time, ahead of S1 rookie Rory van der Steur and Josh Lane, making his return to the California PKC. It was Brian Keck that put the pressure on Musgrave in Heat #1, stealing the lead for four laps until Billy retook the position and the win. Heat #2 saw van der Steur leading four laps before Musgrave resumed the spot – right before a red flag and restart cut the session short. Musgrave and van der Steur were able to get away from everyone in the 14-lap Final, making it a duel for the victory. Rory led the majority of the race, with Musgrave leading the final two circuits. At the line, the two were separated by 76 thousandths of a second at roughly 80mph. Lane was on the podium in third to cap off his return to the seat, while Matias Podboj and Peter Abba completed the top-five.

California Prokart Challenge Resumes At Streets Of Willow

The 2018 season for the California ProKart Challenge began the first weekend of February. Now eight weeks later, the Superkarts! USA flagship regional program resumes with an exciting second event of the season. Competitors from the West Coast as well as across the United States are preparing to head to Rosamond, California and attack the Streets of Willow circuit. The famed course is among the most unique, as the road racing circuit is the only one to feature a distance of over 1-mile on the SKUSA 2018 calendar. Drafting, partners and playing chess at nearly 100mph sums up what the action will be like throughout the weekend at Streets.

The track configuration puts the full course in the clockwise direction (aka ‘up the hill’) at 1.6 miles for the X30 Senior, X30 Master and all Stock Honda categories. The X30 Junior, Mini Swift and Micro Swift divisions will utilize a shorter 1.1-mile layout.

Superkarts! USA Pro Tour SpringNationals Moved to PKRA

The 2018 Superkarts! USA Pro Tour is underway with the running of the WinterNationals on March 2-4 at the NOLA Motorsports Park in Avondale, Louisiana. The second edition of the WinterNationals featured 212 drivers in five IAME categories and four Honda divisions around the 1.1-mile karting course. The event kicked off the championship chases at the SKUSA Pro Tour, with two rounds in the six-round title chase completed. Teams and competitors are now turning their focus toward the next event on the SKUSA Pro Tour calendar, the SKUSA SpringNationals.

On Sunday, Superkarts! USA confirmed a change in location for the 2018 SpringNationals. Originally scheduled for the Simraceway Performance Karting Center in Sonoma, California, the May 4-6 event has been moved to the Phoenix Kart Racing Association facility in Glendale, Arizona. The ‘Formula K Raceway’ circuit is among the most challenging courses in North America, and site of the inaugural SKUSA ProMoto Tour event in 1999.

“I’m interested in supporting tracks that support what we do,” stated SKUSA President Tom Kutscher. “That’s the honest truth. We began our SKUSA Pro Tour in April 2010 in Sonoma, and brought it back last year with record numbers. Our goal was to break that mark in 2018; however, management has changed over the last few months at the facility. I did not feel comfortable not knowing if key pieces would be in place when we got there in May. I see no reason to bring the largest karting program in North America to a facility that is not interested in working with us today or in the future.”
