The 2017 California ProKart Challenge wrapped up the season at the largest finale in series history. A record total of 193 entries contested the two-day Streets of Lancaster Grand Prix on September 30-October 1 to complete the California PKC six race events, as the 11 different series champions were decided. The flagship Superkarts! USA regional program will now honor the title winners and the entire championship podium at the 2017 California ProKart Challenge Championship Awards Banquet, set for October 28 at the BeX Bar & Grill in Lancaster, California.

For a fourth time in his career, Billy Musgrave will be receiving the #1 trophy for earning the most points in the Vemme Kart S1 Pro Stock Honda division. Musgrave was able to outlast S1 rookie Hunter Pickett and Matias Podboj to earn his fourth championship in five years, thanks to three wins and three runner-up finishes. Pickett came away with his first S1 victory along with Podboj, while Nic LeDuc stole the finale round at the Streets of Lancaster. Sixteen-year-old Nicky Hays was able to defend his crown in the Formula Works/CompKart X30 Senior championship race. Hays won the opening round in Buttonwillow, adding two more podium finishes to secure the championship leading up to the finale in Lancaster. Second in the standings is Michael Avansino, recording his best finish in the championship and earning his first career CPKC victory during the CalSpeed weekend.

Las Vegas Strip Is Home to the Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 21 Circuit
Tuesday, 17 October 2017 08:19

The SKUSA SuperNationals 21 circuit is set for November 15-19 at the Las Vegas Convention Center and Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino

The Superkarts! USA SuperNationals has 20 years of history surrounding the bright lights of Las Vegas – from the ‘X-Plex’ to the Rio to Sam Boyd Stadium to the lots outside the Las Vegas Convention Center and the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino. The LVCC ‘Gold’ lot was home to the SuperNationals in 2015 and 2016. 2017 brings new racing turf as the event moves to the LVCC ‘Diamond’ lot, directly adjacent to the Westgate. The shift to the 1.25 million square foot space offers the opportunity for SKUSA to create a new track layout for the 21st running of the Superkarts! USA SuperNationals, set for November 15-19. One of the main features is that portions of the track are now directly next to the famous Las Vegas Strip.

This year, Superkarts! USA expanded the group of experienced karters tasked with designing the new layout outside the LVCC/Westgate to three. Last year’s track designers Howie Idelson and Bonnier Moulton were joined by 2003 SuperNationals winner Wesley Boswell. The 33-year-old from California first raced the SuperNats in 2001, and has been either a driver or mechanic in the years since. Boswell has become one of the most respected driver coaches within the industry, helping drivers throughout North America and at some of the largest international events in the world. Idelson and Moulton are the lone two drivers in SuperNationals history to compete at all 20 events. Idelson earned numerous victories and championships over the decades of karting, including competing in 12 different countries – while playing integral roles in multiple brands within the business. Moulton is a three-time SuperNationals winner in addition to being a key figure in the industry, having penned the initial layout of the now gone Black Rock Raceway in Utah.

The 2017 Streets of Lancaster Grand Prix brought the Superkarts! USA to the city streets once again. The final round of the California ProKart Challenge is held at the Lancaster, California racing festival contested over two-days. It was record numbers for the event overall, welcoming 193 entries on the weekend with drivers coming from New Zealand, Canada and throughout the United States. Kiwi and two-time winner Matt Hamilton was plastered all over the city on the event’s posters, podium and advertising material. Next year, they will see the Cambrian Go-Karts Sodi Kart of Nic LeDuc.

The S1 Pro/S2 Semi-Pro Stock Honda division was one of two headline categories, contesting a full day of action. Billy Musgrave (Aluminos) took the top honors in qualifying, edging out Hamilton (Aluminos) by 74 thousandths. Hamilton got the edge in the opening heat, with LeDuc following through to second. The second heat race, LeDuc came out the winner with Hamilton and Musgrave trailing. That was the winning move of the event, as the group contested their main event under the lights Saturday evening. LeDuc was able to grab the holeshot from the pole position and lead the entire 20-lap distance for his first SOLGP victory. Musgrave finished second with Hamilton rounding out the podium. Brian Keck (CRG) drove to fourth with veteran Ron White (CRG) holding off a pack of drivers for fifth. Read full story on eKartingNews.com
