Planning Continues for Superkarts! USA SummerNationals
Thursday, 13 May 2010 16:08
The 2010 season has now grabbed sixth gear for the staff of Superkarts! USA, as they continue to promote regional and national karting events throughout the western half of the United States. The organization took a major step during the off-season in launching a new three-event ‘Pro Tour,’ and the impressive success of the inaugural SpringNationals in Sonoma back in April has fired a new wave of momentum. With that breakthrough event now in the books, much of SKUSA’s current focus is now being directed on the upcoming SummerNationals, which will take place on July 16-18 at USA International Raceway in Shawano, WI.

This will be the organization’s first official promotional effort east of the Mississippi, and long-range predictions call for a strong turnout of competitors, including a couple of big-name NASCAR stars. SKUSA is also working closely with several of its partners to ensure that this race will be a major league event, and the new programs that are in the works include a pre-race golf tourney promoted by eKartingNews.com and a special S5 motor rental program. SKUSA is also communicating with its foundation of shops and racing teams to promote affordable equipment shipping opportunities for those drivers who wish to participate in the next Pro Tour event. The key concepts are to produce an enjoyable event that is open to any and all karting enthusiasts.

SKUSA Mountain Region Kicks Off 2010 at Pikes Peak
Thursday, 13 May 2010 01:00
In the early years of the Superkarts! USA regime, the SKUSA Mountain Region was a strong presence in the sport of karting. Fast forward to the present time and the new era of SKUSA, the organization is looking to build the solid core of regional racing across the country once again. With that, the rebirth of the Superkarts! USA Mountain Region series took place over the weekend at the Pikes Peak International Raceway in Fountain, Colorado. The two day event took place on a 9/10-mile temporary circuit on the grounds of the PPIR facility. A full day of racing kicked off the season with the opening round contested on Saturday, following Friday’s practice runs.

“It was a very safe weekend of racing and we could not have pulled this off without the help of the local karters connected to the Pikes Peak Kart Racing Club from Colorado Springs,” commented SKUSA Mountain Region Race Director Curt Kistler. “My hat’s off to all the workers, support staff from SKUSA and the leadership team of the SKUSA Mountain Region organization. We look forward to growing this region to its full potential in the next three rounds.”

Leading the way in the top two shifterkart categories were Senior rookie James Michael Sullivan and Masters driver Mike McDonough. Sullivan made his Senior debut with a sweep in the competitive S2 Semi-Pro Stock Moto category, where as McDonough lead the way in the S4 Masters Stock Moto division. With the two classes running together, McDonough and Sullivan were the top two drivers in qualifying with McDonough’s 45.627-lap time best in the session. Sullivan was just a tick off the fast lap, with fellow S2 drivers Christian Bird and Cory Milne within a tenth of the rookie’s time.

ProKart Challenge South and Gatorz Karting Cup Set for Attack on Streets of Willow
Monday, 10 May 2010 12:26
Riding off the momentum of the Superkarts! USA Pro Tour debut in the month of April, the ProKart Challenge South program is set to return to action in the month of May. The Southern California regional series for the national organization will be traveling to the Streets of Willow course in Rosamond, CA for the fourth round of the six race program. The event marks the first time PKC and the Gatorz Karting Cup – a US Rotax Max Challenge program – will work together to co-host a race. The high speed and challenging 1.8-mile circuit at the Willow Springs International Motorsports Park will produce great racing for both programs.

“I am thrilled to be back at Streets. This is actually my favorite track,” stated Superkarts! USA’s Tom Kutscher. “This year will be an even bigger event than before, as we are putting the event on with the Gatorz Karting Cup program. Andy and his crew do a great job, and his Rotax racers are among the best in the country. If you haven’t experienced road racing at 115+ mph, you have to come out. Even if you just want to check it out for Friday practice. This course is a blast!”

“I'm excited to co-promote this event with Tom, Patti and the ProKart Challenge,” commented Andy Seesemann of the Gatorz Karting Cup. “Streets of Willow is my favorite track, as is for many of the Southern California GATORZ and ProKart drivers, and a combined event makes a lot of sense in order to offer our customers the best value possible. Tom and I have talked about a combined event for a few years, and this year we were finally able to get it done.”

Dyer and Fraser Triumph at Third Round of ProKart Challenge North
Wednesday, 05 May 2010 08:58
Riding off the momentum from the debut of the Superkarts! USA North American Pro Tour, the ProKart Challenge North continued its season at the same facility in which the SKUSA SpringNationals were held. The Northern California regional series returned to the Jim Russell International Karting Center in Sonoma for the third round of the program. Veterans Tom Dyer and Larry Fraser took home the gold in the two headline classes – S1 Pro Stock Moto and TaG Senior – over two of the strongest fields. Coming off his first national victory at the Pro Tour, Daniel Langon continued his winning ways by scoring the win in both S5 Junior Stock Moto and the competitive HPV-2 Junior division.

Dyer was making his first start of the 2010 season, and the defending SKUSA SuperNationals Stock Moto champion found himself in chase mode following qualifying. Brett Buckwalter scored the pole position with a lap of 47.791 to better the times set by round two winner Nic LeDuc and Dyer. From the third grid spot in heat one, Dyer was quick on the cold MG Tires, knifing his way to the point in the opening circuit. LeDuc dropped in to follow in second as Tommy Thompson advanced up to third, dropping Buckwalter to fourth. The field stayed that way for the eight-lap heat, with Dyer taking the win. Dyer and LeDuc were able to break away from the rest of the field in heat two. Dyer led early until LeDuc took over the spot on lap six, which would be the winning pass. The third spot was hotly contested, with current point leader Fritz Leesmann earning the spot after the eight laps. The holeshot was all Dyer needed to help him claim the feature victory, as he got off the line cleanly and ran consistent lap times for the 20-lap race. LeDuc and Leesmann engaged in a heated battle for the runner-up spot. Contact was made during one instance where LeDuc was trying to overtake Leesmann. The result of the contact allowed LeDuc to secure the second spot to the checkered flag, until officials docked him one position for the infraction. That put Leesmann up to the second step of the podium and LeDuc to third.
