Wednesday, 17 August 2016 12:37

The opening week of registration for the Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 20 presented by VCI Mexico / GP Racing Kart has kept things exciting and very busy for the office staff. The X30 Master division sold out the 44 spots in less than 30 minutes after entry opened to the public on August 10. X30 Senior competitor Josh Sarchet was the first driver to register, submitting his information within the first minute of the online site skusastore.com going live. He is one of over 200 competitors to register thus far in the 10 categories set to compete November 16-20 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Just across from the LVCC parking lot, site of SKUSA SuperNationals 20, is the host hotel. The Westgate Las Vegas Resort and Casino is just a five-minute walk from the lobby area to the paddock, again providing three beautifully remodeled styles of rooms under the Superkarts! USA special room rate. Premium Rooms are $79+tax/night, Signature Rooms are $99+tax/night, and Concierge Rooms are $164+tax/night.

For many in the karting community, the Superkarts! USA SuperNationals has become the official season finale; that massive must-attend event that caps a great year of competition. This November’s edition will be extra-special, as SKUSA will celebrate the 20th running of this incredible spectacle, one that has helped to take the sport of karting to a new level. The race will make its second appearance at the Las Vegas Convention Center and a total of nine categories will be offered. A brand new track layout is also in the works, and an exciting announcement regarding this effort will be announced soon. The Greenlight Television cameras will be on-site once again to record the coverage for the CBS Sports Network broadcasts, and a special purse package is also ready to announce.

With many racers having already entered the event through SKUSA’s Priority Pre-Entry Program, this particular announcement is to confirm that public registration will begin on August 10 at 7:00 pm Pacific Daylight Time at superkartsusa.com. As has become the norm, Superkarts! USA is expecting a mass influx of entries once public registration opens, and with class caps set in all of the categories, racers are urged to enter as soon as possible so that they don’t miss out on the opportunity to be part of the action for the 20th anniversary event.

SuperNationals XX – 100 Days and Counting

When Superkarts! USA put together the plans for the first SuperNationals event back in 1997, they were at the forefront of the growing movement of shifterkart racing. There were numerous pockets of support for the formula all over the United States and Canada, including Southern California, Northern California, the Pacific Northwest, Florida, and SKUSA’s own flagship Great Lakes region. Having one big race to bring everyone together was not a new concept in karting, but the raw excitement that paralleled the increasing interest in gearbox racing certainly made this event special. There was a real palpable feeling during those early years that if you were there, you were part of something really special. Now, 20 years down the road, we’re able to look back on the explosion of the race and the key decision that then-SKUSA leader Jim Murley made in 2002. Murley was always a visionary and he wanted desperately to take the race from the great desert track in Sloan right into the city of Las Vegas, and when the trailers rolled into the parking lot of the Rio Hotel and Casino in’02, the race was taken to the next level.

We’re now just 100 days from the 20th running of the Superkarts! USA SuperNationals, which is arguably the biggest race in the sport of karting. The SKUSA staff and its drivers will travel to Las Vegas with a full head of steam this November, thanks to record participation numbers in both their ProKart Challenge and Pro Tour programs. They are working diligently to make this race extra special, and the EKN staff has been privy to some of the exciting plans that are in the works. Over the next three months, we’ll be publishing updates and stories focused on the event, and we’ll also look back in time at the history of the SuperNationals. The Howden Media Group launched its first publication at the race in 1999 – Shifter Kart Illustrated – and our own Rob Howden has been the voice of the race since its inception. We also pleased that we’ll once again be providing EKN Trackside Live coverage, including full audio play-by-play of the event from qualifying through to SuperSunday.
