There is no question that the anticipation climbs with each passing day for all the Superkarts! USA racers around the country, as the 2014 Pro Tour SummerNationals draws ever closer. The inaugural Save Mart Supermarkets Modesto Grand Prix will play host to this year’s event on August 1-3, making it the first temporary circuit race outside of the annual SuperNationals to play a role in a Pro Tour championship chase. The City of Modesto and Superkarts! USA have been working feverishly over the last few months, making sure that this event feels like no other in the sport of karting, including a vast marketing and publicity effort and a complete repaving of the downtown area street course.

Modesto Grand Prix logo“Of course, I may seem biased, but I honestly think this is the most highly promoted kart race ever,” explained Superkarts! USA CEO Tom Kutscher. “Publicity efforts include a large push into traditional mediums, including major shopping malls, local FM radio stations, community businesses, and numerous print and online publications. It truly is an event on par with any professional car race in terms of how it is being promoted.”

Thursday, 26 June 2014 08:52


 

In just over 30 days, the city of Modesto will welcome Superkarts! USA and the karting community for the second stop of the 2014 SKUSA Pro Tour national series. The inaugural Modesto Grand Prix will play host to the 2014 SummerNationals on August 1-3, taking part in the downtown city streets. The SKUSA SpringNationals was another record-breaking event, held at the Dallas Karting Complex in May. Even greater numbers are expected for the SummerNationals, with the city of Modesto set to provide an atmosphere never seen before at a street race or Pro Tour event.

Modesto Grand Prix Poster“The anticipation grows each day as we prepare for this year’s SummerNationals at the Modesto Grand Prix,” stated Superkarts! USA President Tom Kutscher. “For months now, we have been holding meetings and conducting site visits to make sure that everything is in place for what we expect to be the largest event for the SKUSA Pro Tour ever – outside of the SuperNationals. The City of Modesto has gone beyond our wildest dreams as a partner to help make this an unbelievable event for karters and for the general public to attend. It’s great for the sport to have a city like this get behind karting. With what we have in the works, including racing under the lights as the sun sets, this event will truly blow you away.”
