Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 2015 Moves to Las Vegas Convention Center
Monday, 27 October 2014 10:31

Since 2008, the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino has been the home of the largest karting event in the world – the Superkarts! USA SuperNationals. The 18th edition of this historic annual event will once again take place at the popular site in Las Vegas, on November 19-23, 2014, and will be the final race at the venue. For 2015 and beyond, Superkarts! USA is thrilled to announce that they have secured a location directly on the Las Vegas Strip, one that will give the competitors and fans the true Vegas experience. On November 18-22, 2015, the 19th annual SKUSA SuperNationals will be held at the world-renowned Las Vegas Convention Center.

“We are beyond excited to begin early preparations for the new location for SuperNationals XIX,” stated Superkarts! USA CEO Tom Kutscher. “The Las Vegas Convention Center hosts some of the largest events in the world. The location is no stranger to motorsport and automotive events, regularly playing host to the SEMA and Motor Trend International Auto Show. The venue is substantially bigger and logistically accommodating, and will allow us to do things that we have been unable to do in the past.”

Tuesday, 14 October 2014 13:35


In just five weeks time, the sound of kart engines humming, the smell of race fuel, and the amazing view of the Las Vegas Strip will provide the incredible atmosphere for those attending at Superkarts! USA’s SuperNationals XVIII. The world’s largest karting event will take place just outside the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino for the ninth time, welcoming drivers from all across the globe. In total, nine main events will take place on SuperSunday to decide this year’s event winners and the 2014 SKUSA Pro Tour champions.

SKUSA Superkarts! USA logo“My task list is definitely focused on nothing but the SuperNationals for the next 30 days,” commented SKUSA’s CEO Tom Kutscher. “It has been a busy 2014 season, and I am really looking forward to the excitement that the SuperNationals brings. I love watching the best drivers from all over the world come to Las Vegas and put on a phenomenal show, no matter what the class. We will again have $10,000 checks up for grabs in our three headline categories, and many more prizes that will be announced before the race week begins. This year may not be the biggest because we’re running just nine classes, but it’s going to be the best yet.”

Rule Clarifications and Upcoming Rule Changes: Honda cylinders, SKUSA TAG classes and IAME/X30
Friday, 19 September 2014 17:54

Honda Cylinders:

Many of the previous complaints regarding the 01/02 cylinders have subsided – as builders, tuners, and drivers have learned to deal with the differences in these cylinders. At this time, SKUSA is not planning on making any changes to the current rule structure for these engines/cylinders.

SKUSA TAG classes:

  • TAG Junior: This class will continue to be a Leopard engine only thru 2015. For 2016, the class will become an X30 engine only.
  • TAG Senior and TaG Master: Effective October 18, 2014 (30 days from this notice), the X30 engine weight will be reduced to 365 lbs in TaG Senior and 392 lbs in TaG Master. This will be the final weight adjustment for 2014.
    • A new X30 PDF published on the SKUSA website today, September 19, reflects the addition of carbon fiber reeds, along with a change of the minimum reed thickness to .010”. Only IAME reeds are allowed.
    • For 2015, both the Leopard and X30 engines will be allowed, and drivers will be able to switch between both engines without penalty. As previously announced, both the ROK TT and Motori 7 will be removed from the list of allowable engines in the SKUSA program starting in 2015.
    • For 2016, only the X30 engine will be allowed in these 2 classes.

Additional X30 information:

  • All X30 engines used in SKUSA competition must be purchased from an Authorized IAME USA Dealer. IAME USA is developing an Identity Card that will be supplied with each new engine, as well as making them available for engines previously purchased in North America. This should not cause any problems for legitimately-purchased USA engines, and will allow IAME USA and its customers to conform to the stringent EPA regulations regarding off-road competition engines.
  • Pricing on replacement parts for the Triton carburetors has reached an unacceptable level. IAME USA will be announcing a program that will replace all Triton carburetors on qualifying engines with a Tillotson carburetor at no cost to the competitor.
  • Both the new ID card and carburetor will be announced when available – targeted for the beginning of 2015 from your local IAME USA dealer.
