Pit Spots, Tents & Camping – Planning And Reservations For This Year’s Pro Tour SpringNationals at PKRA

Reserving Your Pit Spot

ATTENTION PARTICIPANTS! AS OF 4/22/16, THE SPRINGNATS PIT MAP IS COMPLETELY FULL, AND WE ALREADY HAVE 4 MORE TEAM PIT REQUESTS THAT ARE NOT EVEN ON THE MAP YET.  IF YOU ARE STILL IN NEED OF A PIT SPOT, PLEASE SEND YOUR PIT REQUEST IN ASAP VIA EMAIL BASED ON THE DIRECTIONS BELOW, SO THAT WE KNOW WHAT WE HAVE TO STILL ACCOMMODATE ON SITE. 

ALL ADD’L PIT REQUESTS AFTER 4/22 WILL BE ASSIGNED A FINAL LOCATION UPON ARRIVAL. IF YOU CAN JOIN ANOTHER DRIVER/TEAM WITHIN THEIR CURRENT PIT SPOT, IT WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED. OTHERWISE, WE WILL FIT YOU IN. SEE YOU AT PKRA!


As always, the toughest part for the SKUSA staff in organizing large events each year is laying out and fitting everyone into the pits!

This year is no different, as our SpringNationals event at Phoenix Kart Racing Association circuit in Glendale, AZ will likely see the largest participation yet for a Pro Tour weekend! ALL RACERS or TEAM OWNERS can do their part now by reserving the space they will need (as well as encouraging all drivers to get pre-registered for the event – before their classes cap out at 40)!

If you know EXACTLY how much space you will need for your pit spot, please fax – or email – a complete drawing to the SKUSA office ASAP. The fax number is 951-491-0809 and email is  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it What to include on your pit request is described below. It’s a good idea to call after you send a fax, to make sure your request was received and is complete. Our phone number is 951-491-0808. Emailed pit requests will be replied to with a confirmation upon receipt.

The price of all pit spots will be $.30/SF for the first 3 rows, and $.20/SF for the 4th row. The paddock area will be rows of pit spots all 12’W x 40’D so your drawing should reflect multiples of this size. It is also a good idea to specify your top 3 choices for the pit spot locations you prefer (i.e., 23-27, 133-136, etc), based on the pit map posted below.

2016 SpringNats Pit Map


NOTE: The event sponsors will receive priority pit spot placement, so be sure to note on your pit request if you are a sponsor, or if you’d like information on becoming one.

Here are the items to include on your pit request drawing:
  • Full layout – with dimensions in feet – of your total pit area. PLEASE BE EXACT, AND DO NOT REQUEST MORE SPACE THAN YOU TRULY NEED. You will probably NOT be able to add space when you arrive.
  • Include where tents will go, trailers, E-Z ups, VIP area, etc.
  • Include space for trailer tongue and doors.
  • Include a team name and a list of the drivers that will be pitting in the spot. NOTE: You can send your pit map when it is absolutely final; however, all drivers MUST be registered for the race before SKUSA will confirm your pit spot location. In the event that there are multiple teams in one pit area, a designated team manager/ representative must be named as the person responsible for tent and trailer placement. We will NOT park teams on site unless and until ALL trailers are present.
  • Teams that want to be pitted next to or near each other MUST submit their pit requests to SKUSA at the same time with a specific note on each drawing telling us that preference.
  • Include your contact name and best daytime contact info on your drawing (phone and email).
  • Tell us whether or not you’ll be renting a tent, bringing your own, or both. See below for vendor info.
We will be in touch to confirm each pit reservation submitted, and will secure payment with you when we have you placed on the pit map.

NOTE: NO passenger vehicles will be allowed in the pits, so please do not include them in your layout. Toy Haulers will be allowed in the pits, but only for working out of during event hours. NO OVERNIGHT CAMPING WILL BE ALLOWED IN THE PITS AT ALL FOR THIS EVENT (not even in Toy Haulers).




Tents

The EXCLUSIVE rental tent and rental equipment vendor for this event will be CLASSIC PARTY RENTALS. You can reach our SKUSA account rep Jessica Van Sky at 602-232-9900 (office), 602-763-5296 (mobile), or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  to get options, pricing and to make arrangements. Their estimated tent price is approx. $.65/SF for tent canopies (walls are extra, delivery & pickup fees may apply). They also offer other rental items such as tables, chairs, food service items, and heating/cooling equipment. NOTE: You will want to confirm your pit space with the SKUSA office prior to finalizing your tent rental, although it’s a good idea to check tent availability and pricing right away in order to submit the most accurate pit layout.

Trailer Storage

If you have a trailer that will be used for transporting karts and equipment only, and does not need to be parked inside of the pit area, there will be a $25 fee to store it in a secured outer lot of this facility. Please add that note to your pit spot request to give SKUSA advanced notice.

Schedule

Pit move-in will begin on Tuesday at noon, April 26 with the big rigs and must be complete by 6pm on Thursday, April 28th. An optional practice day is being offered on Thursday starting at noon. See more info on our Venue Info and Event Schedule pages. Move out will begin Sunday night, May 1st, after the final podium presentation (approx. 6pm). All trailers will need to be out of the pits by end of day Monday, May 2nd. Tent install dates: Mon-Tues, April 25-26. Tent tear down: Monday, 5/2.

NO ON-SITE CAMPING

Unfortunately, due to flood zone restrictions in the area, there will be no overnight camping allowed within the pit area for this event. SKUSA has arranged a great deal at the nearby Courtyard by Marriott Phoenix/Happy Valley as the event Host Hotel.

See you in Phoenix!
