This past weekend marked an exciting return for the Superkarts! USA organization to the historic Sonoma, California area. The Simraceway Performance Karting Center has been home to a number of karting events over the years, including the inaugural SKUSA Pro Tour event in April 2010. Superkarts! USA returned to a cheerful, welcoming crowd on June 6-7 to host Round Four of the California ProKart Challenge. Over 130 drivers competed on the famed National course in the reverse direction – the largest turn out at this track year-to-date for any regional or national series. The weather was picture perfect for racing, and the PKC championship chase saw a shake-up as a number of northern California drivers put their ‘home track’ advantage to good use toward reaching the top step of the podium.

The 2014 California ProKart Challenge resumes in a week and a half (June 6-7), as the series returns to the Simraceway Performance Karting Center. Superkarts! USA racing has been absent from the Sonoma, California facility for a few years, but was prevalent as the site of the NorCal ProKart Challenge series that raced there from 2008 thru 2010, as well as the location for the inaugural SKUSA SpringNationals in 2010. The popular karting circuit has hosted a number of other major events over the years, and will serve as the final permanent course for the California PKC program before it closes out the season with two temporary circuits.

ProKart Challenge logoThe championship chases in the California ProKart Challenge have reached the halfway point, with a number of titles featuring close battles for the top spot. It’s just 23 points separating the top-three drivers in the Mike Manning Karting TaG Senior category. Veteran Matt Johnson holds the point lead coming off his victory at the last round held on the Adams circuit. Jake Craig is just eight points out of first with Austin Elliott holding third, both recording two podium results thus far. Craig was the Round Two winner, with Elliott not yet earning a win. All have experience and success at Sonoma, and will define the chase toward the championship. Billy Musgrave is looking for a repeat in the Vemme Kart/Extreme Karting S1 Pro Stock Moto championship. Placing second at the opener in Buttonwillow, he’s ripped off two wins to reach the halfway point with a solid lead in the standings. Former series champ Ryon Beachner is the lead challenger, with Peter Abba involved in the chase.
