SKUSA Competitor Bulletin – SpringNationals Stock Moto Cylinder Declaration
Thursday, 10 April 2014 19:21


Rule exception granted for Pro Tour SpringNationals - Honda Cylinder Declaration

As many of our Stock Honda drivers have discovered, there has been an unfortunate disruption in the supply of ’01 cylinders. This has come at an exceptionally challenging time, with the Pro Tour SpringNationals just a few weeks away.

While it is expected to be a short-term problem, we are taking the following step to minimize its impact on our competitors attending this national event:

The SKUSA rule of needing to DECLARE a cylinder year and then NOT CHANGING it will not apply at this event. Cylinder declaration for this series will begin with the SummerNationals. All other rules regarding substitution remain in effect.

Note that this only applies to the SpringNationals event at this time. Also as a reminder, although SKUSA will continue to appreciate the value and merit of a forum ‘discussion’ of some racing topics, we prefer more direct communication — such as emails to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it — when racers have input regarding current policies and potential rule revisions.

We thank Honda and Honda Performance Development for their continuing support of SKUSA and their efforts to work through this challenge.

Superkarts! USA is preparing for another record-breaking season as the fifth season of the SKUSA Pro Tour kicks off in the Lone Star State in less than 50 days. The 2014 SKUSA SpringNationals will host the opening two rounds of the season, scheduled for the Dallas Karting Complex in Caddo Mills, roughly 45 minutes from downtown Dallas. Over the past few seasons, driver totals have increased steadily with each offering of the SpringNationals, and 2014 is estimated to be the biggest, as the SKUSA Pro Tour journeys east of the Rocky Mountains for the first time since 2010.

Racers planning to compete in the SpringNationals will be able secure their position in the eight Superkarts! USA categories as online registration opens to the public at midnight on March 14. Each of the eight classes will have a cap of 40 drivers, with classes such as TaG Senior, S2 Semi-Pro and TaG Cadet expected to easily achieve that number as the May 2-4 event draws near and the April 27 pre-registration deadline approaches. Information regarding pit spot reservations and the tentative weekend schedule is to be published on the SpringNats event page starting at midnight tonight, accessible through the SKUSA Pro Tour Event Calendar page.

Wednesday, 29 January 2014 16:23


Thanks to the growth of current events and the debut of another, the 2014 national karting season is expected to surpass what was already a historic season of racing last year. One of the events that are sure to take the sport to another level is the Modesto Grand Prix, the site of the fifth annual Superkarts! USA SummerNationals. The Northern California city has partnered with the popular karting organization to host a three-day street race right in the heart of the city during the first weekend of August. Just after the New Year, the City of Modesto and Superkarts! USA hosted a press launch to introduce the citizens, then local media and city officials to the early plans for the race and the sport of karting, to be specific.

The City of Modesto is located about 90 miles east of San Francisco and 70 miles south of Sacramento, in Northern California. Over 200,000 people call the Central Valley city home. The famed Modesto Arch is the city’s historical icon, which has featured the motto, ‘Water, Wealth, Contentment, Health’ since its construction in 1912. Famous filmmaker George Lucas is a native of Modesto. His popular film – American Graffiti – was filmed in Modesto, and is celebrated through numerous events that are held during the summer months, festivals that bring thousands of car fanatics into the area.
