Rotax Can-Am ProKart Challenge Inaugural Event Welcoming Top Teams and Drivers
Wednesday, 15 May 2013 08:07
A new era is set to begin for the sport of karting in the Pacific Northwest region of the North America, as the Rotax Can-Am ProKart Challenge will host its inaugural event at the Greg Moore Raceway in Chilliwack, British Columbia. The May 17-19 event will welcome a number of top racers and teams, ready to compete in the Rotax Max Challenge and Superkarts! USA categories that will be offered in the four weekend series. Pre-registration completed last week, and a tremendous entry list will travel to the Vancouver area from all across the continent.

The Greg Moore Raceway is among the historic facilities in North America. A number of Canadian and United States national championships have been contested at the home of the West Coast Kart Club. Formerly known as CART BC, the 1.2km (3/4-mile) circuit is among the most challenging tracks in the sport and is sure to provide a great venue for the Rotax Max Challenge and Superkarts! USA competitors. The Rotax Can-Am ProKart Challenge will feature eight rounds of racing over the course of four weekends, with the point championship counting the best six races. This will allow drivers and teams who can not make all four weekends a chance at contesting the title chases without a penalty, all while gaining ‘punches’ toward the Rotax Grand Nationals for United States drivers or earning a guaranteed starting position on SuperSunday at the SuperNationals in Las Vegas for SKUSA competitors.

Weather Rushes Opening Two Rounds of Midwest ProKart Challenge
Friday, 26 April 2013 09:33
The opening rounds of the 2013 Superkarts! USA Midwest ProKart Challenge were a true challenge – on and off the track – for the competitors who raced to escape the terrible flooding that took place throughout the Great Lakes area last weekend. Flooding was a major concern at the I-55 Raceway in Pevely, Missouri – located alongside the Mississippi River – when officials arrived Friday. With the information in hand, SKUSA elected to condense the two-round schedule from two days into one, with 60 laps of racing facing the drivers. Unfortunately, a number of competitors who planned to compete had to deal with their own personal flooding issues and were forced to miss the event. The racing continued on, as a number of competitors battled around ‘Thunder Valley’ to start out the 2013 season.

Defending S2 Semi-Pro champion Nick Lougee returned, carrying the regional #1 plate and started out the year battling S1 driver Derek Crockett. After a year away from the sport, the 2010 SKUSA Pro Tour S2 Semi-Pro champion returned, committed to contesting the full Midwest PKC. Lougee claimed the pole position and scored the heat one victory. Crockett came through after troubles in the first two on-track sessions to outrun Lougee for the heat two win. In the opening main event, Lougee led the first half with Crockett controlling the second for the overall victory. Lougee would strike back in the second final, leading the entire way as he held off Crockett at the checkered flag. Collin Willis and Jenna Grillo rounded out the S2 podium in both main events, each earning a runner-up finish. The 2012 S5 Junior Stock Moto series champ Erik Nelson began his defense strong, with two victories on the opening weekend. It was nearly a sweep, as Nelson started out on top in qualifying and heat one, but a DNF in heat two dropped him down the order, giving the win to Kyle Kennedy. Nelson bounced back to earn the victory in final one over Kennedy and Max Nufer, and once again in final two, with Nufer earning the runner-up position. Kris Dickson was the lone S4 Master Stock Moto competitor on the weekend, and is expected to see more competition at the next two event weekends.
