Texas ProKart Challenge Produces Solid Racing at Grandsport Speedway
Thursday, 07 June 2012 08:35
Grandsport Speedway hosted its first ever regional karting event as the growing Texas ProKart Challenge (TPKC) presented by 3G Kart Racing/Burger King™/Fernelius Alvarez Attorneys visited the facility on June 1-3. The open 1.3-mile course in Hitchcock, Texas provided a very fast course for the series to contend rounds three and four of the six event championship program. The weekend was co-promoted by 3G and Gulf Coast Karters, who moved most of their barriers, PA system, and timing and scoring equipment across town to properly host the event. Over 80 entries contested the three-day event under the Superkarts! USA and United States Rotax Max Challenge regional banners, providing some exciting racing that kept people on the pit wall throughout the day.

The weekend saw over 30 shifterkart drivers compete on the very fast circuit with the S2 Semi-Pro division, sponsored Miller & Brown LLP, hosting 17 entries. Ryan Kinnear and Garrett Boone split the feature wins on the weekend. Kinnear swept the action for round three on Saturday, leading the class through qualifying, both heat races and the feature. He led point leader Connor Wagner and Jordon Musser across the stripe. Stopping Kinnear from a perfect score on the day, Miguel Lopez stole the fast lap of the race in a 10th place effort. Sunday saw Boone qualifying in P1 position with Kinnear coming through for the win in heat one. Boone struck back to win heat two and drove away to lead all 12 laps of the main event for to earn his second feature victory of the season.

Midwest ProKart Challenge Event Records Successful 2012 Season Opener
Tuesday, 29 May 2012 10:01
The 2012 season of the revamped Midwest ProKart Challenge got underway at the TNT Kartways in West Quincy, MO over the May 18-20 weekend. A double-round event at the historic 4/10-mile course began a new era for Superkarts! USA in the area, welcoming racers from a wide range of surrounding states contesting eight categories, half Stock Moto and half TaG divisions. The largest class of the weekend was TaG Senior, one that struggled to produce respectable numbers in the past, showing that the SKUSA format of TaG racing is favorable among the karting community. S5 Junior Stock Moto was the second largest, as the Midwest continues to produce the next rising stars in shifterkart racing.

The Kart Star Motorsports-sponsored TaG Senior category welcomed 10 competitors on the weekend, led throughout the event by Tommy Andersen. The Illinois driver swept the weekend in convincing fashion. Andersen opened up round one by setting fast time in qualifying (28.278 seconds) and then winning both heat races comfortably. Tommy went flag-to-flag in the main event to score the victory by over three-seconds ahead of Minnesota pilot Aaron Telitz and Wisconsin’s Dillon Kranz. Andersen went just a tick quicker in qualifying on Sunday (28.230) with the same result of P1. He would go on to lead all 12 laps of the heat races and the 20-lap feature for a clean sweep. Telitz matched his runner-up finish from the previous day, as Kaylee Granberg from Missouri won the battle for the final podium step.

The new Texas ProKart Challenge (TPKC) presented by 3G Kart Racing/Burger King™/Fernelius Alvarez Attorneys will return to action on June 1-3 as the series travels to the Grandsport Speedway, south of downtown Houston, Texas.

The same is expected when the gates open up next weekend in Hitchcock, Texas.

The 1.3-mile permanent Grandsport Speedway course was completed in 2007. The facility hosts a number of car and motorcycle clubs from the region. Next weekend will be the first competition karting event for the facility. While the length may be longer than typical sprint tracks in the country, the ‘Mako Circuit’ will provide a great challenge for all categories competing on June 1-3. The weekend will also be an excellent opportunity for the popular road racing community in the Lone Star state to experience the brand of racing that Texas ProKart Challenge offers.

Wednesday, 16 May 2012 12:52
A new era begins this weekend as the revamped Northwest ProKart Challenge (NWPKC) kicks off its 2012 season. The popular Pat’s Acres Racing Complex in Canby, Oregon will host rounds one and two of the six-event series. Formerly known as the I-5 Corridor Series, the program is now an official Superkarts!

The series boasts a focused class structure with emphasis on plenty of track time, and Northwest ProKart Challenge organizers are striving to offer nothing but the best for karters in the area.

“It’s an exciting time here and I can’t wait for the 2012 Northwest ProKart Challenge to begin,” stated series director Chris Egger. “Our facility has a long and joyful history with the Superkarts! USA organization and we are happy to reunite once again. It’s great that we are able to combine that with our popular Rotax Max Challenge program that we have offered. It’s the best of both worlds, in my opinion. We have shown for many years now the talent here in the Pacific Northwest has to offer the sport of karting and I’m sure that the series will help to groom the current and future stars.”
