Superkarts! USA Announces Inaugural Hall of Fame Class
Wednesday, 09 November 2016 00:00

Superkarts! USA is celebrating a major milestone in its exciting history this month with the 20th running of their prestigious SuperNationals, the race that came from humble beginnings in the Las Vegas desert in 1997. Hitting that 20-year mark is extremely significant, as it speaks to the dedication and passion of the people who helped build SKUSA’s foundation and to those who have fueled its continued growth. To this end, Superkarts! USA Tom Kutscher announced last month that the company would be debuting a new Hall of Fame this year to celebrate this organization’s rich history. The first class of inductees will be honored on SuperSunday at this year’s SuperNationals, and the inaugural foursome includes Don Janowski, Jim Murley, Alan Rudolph and Greg Bell.

Superkarts! USA Launches New Hall of Fame
Friday, 28 October 2016 11:50

This has certainly been a milestone year for Superkarts! USA and its community of drivers, families and teams. The karting organization enjoyed incredibly strong participation in its California ProKart Challenge in 2016 and record-setting numbers on its growing national championship SKUSA Pro Tour. The upcoming 20th running of the SuperNationals event will also mark a highpoint of the 2016 season, as it prompts a timely look at the incredible history of the company. The organization has been promoting karting events under the SKUSA banner for over 20 years, and the time has come to begin acknowledging the individuals who have played significant roles in developing and growing Superkarts! USA during that time. As a result, Superkarts! USA President Tom Kutscher would like to officially announce the formation of a new SKUSA Hall of Fame, which will honor those individuals who have contributed to the success of this thriving organization.

“It’s hard to put into words how important Superkarts! USA is to me, not only because it’s my company and my livelihood, but in how it’s affected my life for the last 20 years,” admitted Kutscher, who raced with SKUSA in the late 1990s and early 2000s before becoming a kart shop and team owner. “SKUSA racing played a huge role in my life during my mid-30s, when I found the excitement of karting and fell in love with the sport through the thrill of racing the SuperNationals and the ProMoto Tour. It changed everything for me. And when I look back, I’m motivated to thank those who dedicated themselves to the goal of building this organization. I know full well what it takes to run this company, and the passion that is needed to commit to being a promoter, a driver, a team owner and a shop owner. Our goal with the Hall of Fame is to thank those who have put their all into our organization, and to make sure they’ll also have a place in our history.”

The SKUSA Hall of Fame will have unique categories for Drivers, Officials and Industry Members who have made a lasting impact and significant difference in the development and growth of the Superkarts! USA racing over the years. SKUSA will announce the first class of inductees on Tuesday, November 8. The initial Hall of Fame members will be honored during the SuperNationals opening ceremonies on SuperSunday (November 20).
 
SUPERKARTS! USA ADDRESSES LINGERING QUESTIONS AND CONCERNS REGARDING IMPOUNDED ENGINES AND SUBSEQUENT RULING OF FINDINGS
Friday, 24 June 2016 08:00


Superkarts! USA has been compelled to respond to the ongoing questions surrounding the impounded Honda CR125 cylinders and better clarify the findings and subsequent actions resulting from the examination process.

Previous efforts to be discreet have unfortunately backfired, underscoring the need for the series to further elaborate on the events that transpired, based on the clear and present evidence of non-factory modifications.

As the previous press release indicated, four competitors’ cylinders were impounded at a regional ProKart Challenge event to test and rule out the common speculation that there was aftermarket coating present. Per the SKUSA rulebook, using any aftermarket coating like Nikasil® would be a clear violation of the stock format, and thus illegal. This speculation of aftermarket coatings has been a point of concern among many in SKUSA circles and something we felt important to officially repudiate once and for all with a comprehensive series of tests.
