The third and fourth rounds of the Superkarts! USA Pro Tour brought the sport’s top drivers to the Simraceway Performance Karting Center in Sonoma, CA this weekend (May 5-7), and Saturday’s events on the 11-turn circuit were highlighted by huge wins for Nic LeDuc in S1 Pro Stock Honda and Ryan Norberg in X30 Senior. LeDuc did not attend the WinterNationals, so his victory will not likely play in the title chase, but on the other hand, Norberg’s triumph over a stacked 44-kart X30 Senior field has drastically improved his chance to defend his 2017 title and national #1 plate.

Despite high than normal winds, the weather was almost ideal with temperatures in the high-60s and the track’s layout opened up many opportunities for overtaking. That said, the racing was much more aggressive and contact-filled than the series opener at NOLA Motorsports Park in March. Even with the video marshalling system in place, drivers appeared to revert back to their less-than-stellar racecraft. Qualifying up front, and away from the mid-pack chaos was certainly a key component in a successful day.

There is no greater feeling then returning back to where it all began. Superkarts! USA is set to take pleasure in welcoming the SKUSA Pro Tour back to the Simraceway Performance Karting Center in Sonoma, California. The 2017 SpringNationals returns back to the same facility where the inaugural SKUSA Pro Tour event took place back in April 2010. It has been a long seven year journey with the organization evolving and the championship series establishing itself as THE pinnacle program in North American karting.

The bar continues to rise, as this year’s SpringNationals is set to be another record-breaking event as the biggest race ever to be held at the Simraceway karting circuit. Over 200 entries have been collected to date at the SKUSA home office for the May 5-7, 2017 event. The track is among the most picturesque locations in North America, located on the side of Sears Point in the Sonoma wine country, roughly an hour north of downtown San Francisco. It is a true destination location. For the racers, the track is tremendous and ranked among the best there is. The ‘Reverse National’ layout provides some of the best racing with plenty of passing opportunities, and the famous ‘Tic-Tac-Toe’ section of the course is sure to test the drivers.

SpringNats Registration Opens Tonight
Monday, 03 April 2017 08:45


If the first three races of the Superkarts! USA calendar are any indication, the leading karting organization in the country is primed for another banner year. A motivated 190 drivers invaded Buttonwillow Raceway during the first partially-rainy weekend of February to kick off the California ProKart Challenge, and then the Texas PKC fired up their first pure-SKUSA season with a solid opening round the weekend before the inaugural Pro Tour WinterNationals at NOLA. The California PKC crew was back at it this past weekend on the Streets of Willow with almost 170 entries, proving SKUSA’s success with scheduling races during the first weekend of each month. This consistent spacing now puts the focus on May 5-7, when the Pro Tour continues in Sonoma, California with the eighth annual SpringNationals.

SKUSA is returning to the site of the inaugural Pro Tour event that was held at the Simraceway Performance Karting Center in Sonoma in 2010. Held over a mid-April weekend seven years ago, a total of 98 entries took part in this first event, which ushered in a new era for the organization’s championship program. Over the next seven years, the SKUSA Pro Tour has developed into the leading national championship series in North America, with entries for this year’s SpringNationals projected to eclipse the 250-driver mark. Per Tom Kutscher, SKUSA CEO, “Talking to a number of team managers already, I wouldn’t be surprised if we hit 300 entries for this event, with multiple classes selling out at the 40-entry cap right away.”
