Driver Age
ALL driver’s ages must be verified prior to completing the processing of their race entry and/or SKUSA membership. Verification would be a clear and official legal copy of his/her birth certificate or passport. Adult driver’s licenses will work, as well, but we prefer one of the other 2 official documents, if available.

SKUSA has many of the previous driver’s birth certificates on file, but mostly just those under 18. If not, you must attach an ‘Age Verification’ document to the online driver’s MSR application,  or send it via email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or fax to (951) 491-0809 with the application for a SKUSA membership/racing license. Be sure to check the Classes section of this event for more information, and sections 15.3 and 20.1.2 of the SKUSA Rulebook for minimum age requirements of each class.

Overnight Parking and Camping

PKC has arranged for overnight parking of trailers and on-site camping starting Thursday at 1pm, August 31st.

See the Pit Map, and purchase only the space you need thru the online store. (No club pit spots apply to this event.)

Camping will be available for this event; the cost will be a flat $50 paid to the club upon arrival. Camping in the pits will be allowed with trailers/toy haulers, and the PKC pit spot fee will apply (in addition to the camping fee to MBK). Due to space limitations, RVs/campers will pay the MBK $50 fee only and will be parked just outside of the main pit area.

Spectator Tickets and Will-Call

As part of an overall effort to expedite driver check-in, we have eliminated the use of "Will Call" lists, although purchasing your tickets via EventBrite below serves the same purpose. A few things will help us help you.
  •  Walking up to the Registration check-in desk WITH a printed copy OR your phone open to your BAR CODE is the quickest and easiest way to get you into the event. 
  • If you are not sure what the bullet above means, CHECK YOUR EMAIL! You should have received one from Evenbrite with the PDF barcode each time you purchase tickets. That is what we need to see AS YOU APPROACH the check-in area.
  • If you know the name of your MECHANIC or other attendee(s), include them on their tickets. Adding their email address will even send a copy directly to them. (NOTE: Mechanic passes are not always included with a SKUSA race entry, and never for ProKart Challenge.)
  • If you don't know the name of your MECHANIC or other attendee(s), that's ok too, but you must send them a copy of their ticket. Even a screenshot of the barcode via text will work!
  • We can check usually someone in manually, but verification could delay their entry thru the gate -- so please make every attempt to provide them with their BAR CODED ticket.

Parents, Guardians and Team Principles

If you need to check with in a driver for age or language reasons, you can still purchase a ticket for yourself below ahead of time or you can purchase it at Driver Registration. Purchasing them ahead of time below helps expedited check-in and keep the lines moving faster.
