Superkarts! USA SpringNationals 2016 Just 10 Days Away
Monday, 18 April 2016 08:56

The 2016 season is set to begin with a bang for the Superkarts! USA’s Pro Tour national series. The flowers are beginning to bloom, temperatures are steadily rising across North America, and the anticipation of beginning the championship chase is growing with each passing day. The 2016 SKUSA SpringNationals will take place April 29-May 1 at the Phoenix Kart Racing Association in Glendale, Arizona. Nine categories are set to battle in the seventh annual event, beginning the SKUSA Pro Tour competition that includes a return visit to Indiana for the SummerNationals and a 20th anniversary celebration of the SuperNationals this November.

It all begins at PKRA. Pre-Registration has been open for just over a month, with entry numbers surpassing 200 to date, the pits overflowing, and multiple classes on the verge of selling out at the 40-entry cap. Space still remains in all nine categories at the moment, but that is changing daily – with the pre-entry deadline of Sunday, April 24 at 11:59pm PDT looming. Drivers planning to attend this exciting event can register via the www.skusastore.com online link up until this coming Sunday at Midnight (unless their class sells out prior). Those unable to pre-register have an opportunity to sign-up trackside in available classes only beginning Thursday April 28, with race entry fees increased to $500 (currently at $395 for the two headline divisions and $350 for all others). Reserved pit spots are also a must, as SKUSA struggles to fit in all competitors registered to date.

The California ProKart Challenge traveled north to the Monterey Bay Karters facility in Marina, California on April 1-2. The third round of the championship series visited the facility for only the second time in the program’s history, featuring 11 Honda and IAME categories for all ages. The weather was ideal, as the 1/2-mile circuit provided a new and exciting challenge for nearly 160 drivers in attendance. Throughout the weekend the headline was new winners, with eight drivers securing their first victory of the season to tighten up the championship chases.

Reminder of SKUSA’s Racing Age/Category Regulation
Written by John Motley - National Tech Director   
Wednesday, 06 April 2016 21:59
As we encountered a few inconsistencies last season and have received many calls and emails lately requesting clarification, we’d like to again call your attention to SKUSA rule 15.3 regarding age categories:

“Once a driver competes in the next higher age category in any verifiable karting competition event, at any level, they must continue to compete at that age category in SKUSA-sanctioned events, and may no longer compete in the lower age category.”


Put simply, once a driver runs in a higher age category – and we determine that is the case (even in Club events) – the driver will have to continue to race in this next higher age category.

The only automatic exception to this rule that will be allowed (as posted on 2/12/16) is the one regarding a single Cadet class running at the club level -- combining Micro and Mini Swift drivers, as specifically described HERE.

Another reminder for all classes is that SKUSA considers the ‘competition age’ of the driver to be the age that driver will be as of the LAST day of the competition year.

Any other questions/issues should be directed to the SKUSA offices via email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or call 951-491-0808.
