Superkarts! USA Announces 2015 Pro Tour Prize Package
Monday, 02 March 2015 11:43

If you were to look at the recent history of karting in North America, you would see that the Superkarts! USA Pro Tour is the sport’s biggest success story in terms of national competition. A focus on steady growth and consistent improvement has resulted in the largest fields in recent memory, as over 230 racers took part in last year’s SpringNationals and SummerNationals. The season-ending SuperNationals has grown to monumental proportions with well over 500 drivers traveling to Las Vegas each November. In keeping with its dedication to constant evolution and improvement, Superkarts! USA is thrilled to announce that the assembled prize package for the 2015 Pro Tour season will exceed $150,000 in cash and awards.

“From the day that we launched the Pro Tour, our focus has always been on growing and improving the series so that we may one day have that professional series that karting has been looking for, something that we can market to mainstream motorsports fans to come out to see,” commented Tom Kutscher, Superkarts! USA CEO. “To that end, we’ve made some technical moves to level the playing field and lower overall costs, and we continue to cultivate partnerships with the industry to grow the prize package that we can offer to our racers. We’ve surpassed the $150,000 mark, but I’m aiming for $200,000 before we open the gates at the SpringNationals in May.”

2014 was a record breaking season for the Superkarts! USA Pro Tour. During the fifth year of the national program, driver numbers reached an all-time high at both the SpringNationals and SummerNationals. Racers enjoyed the challenging Dallas Karting Complex facility in Caddo Mills, Texas, and took on the city streets of Modesto, California for the first street race incorporated into the Pro Tour calendar. The season wrapped up with SuperNationals XVIII, the last event to be held at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.

SKUSA Superkarts! USA logoOver the course of the three events, Superkarts! USA welcomed 600 distinct drivers while handing out more than $100,000 in cash and prizes on the year. During the first two events of the Pro Tour, the headline categories (S1 and TaG Senior) competed for a $3,500 cash purse, a possible $30,000 purse at the SuperNationals, and a $12,000 championship purse. Honda Performance Development/HPD provided a $9,000 championship purse for the Stock Moto categories, and the TaG Cadet champion was given a ticket to the 2015 Rok Cup International Final. Each of the eight champions will be included in the 2015 SKUSA ‘Circle of Champions,’ earning a complimentary package for the Pro Tour that includes race entry fees, race tires, and race fuel/oil for all three events – valued overall at $24,000.
