Rocky Mountain ProKart Challenge

Rocky Mountain ProKart Challenge Releases 2014 Program Details
Tuesday, 01 April 2014 15:41
The Rocky Mountain area has experienced growth in the sport of karting the last few seasons, thanks in part to a strong core of racers, popular facilities, and hosting the Superkarts! USA SummerNationals for the past three seasons. The organization’s regional programs are always looking to improve by providing the most exciting and customer-friendly race weekends – offering that true SKUSA experience – while keeping the racer’s budget in mind. The Rocky Mountain ProKart Challenge embodies those goals each and every year, and 2014 will be no different as the series is set to contest three double-event weekends that will make up a six-round championship program, utilizing two challenging circuits.

“Series competitors and industry members have all voiced their opinions, and now we are moving forward with a schedule that is cost effective and allows our members to attend any national event and still compete in the regional series,” commented Superkarts! USA National Operations Director Stan Bryniarski. “The 2014 Rocky Mountain ProKart Challenge schedule was created to provide the optimal dates without conflicts. With both the Spring and SummerNationals geographically different for 2014, and the amount of Rocky Mountain SKUSA members and teams who participate, careful consideration was taken to the racers’ budget and to minimize those conflicts. We are happy with the final schedule and classes that we are offering for the upcoming season. We welcome all racers to come out and see what the program has to offer. The area is a hotbed for karting, thanks to supportive facilities and a thriving regional program. Now with this year’s plan in place, we feel the Rocky Mountain ProKart Challenge can race into another successful year.”

Rocky Mountain ProKart Challenge Comes to an end at The Track At Centennial
Tuesday, 03 September 2013 13:16
This past weekend (August 23-25) the Rocky Mountain ProKart Challenge ended its 2013 season with its sixth and seventh rounds being contested at The Track at Centennial, south of Denver, Colorado. Superkarts! USA and US Rotax Max Challenge racers from Utah, Wyoming, and all corners of Colorado pulled through the gates of TTAC for the first time in the series’ young four-year history. The technical yet fast 20-corner circuit, with an added threat of rain during both main events, challenged drivers all weekend.

Amid championship weekend, several point battles had been settled coming into the final two rounds, but many were still highly contested and up for grabs. Two of those close point battles included the S2 Semi-Pro Stock Moto class and the S4 Master Stock Moto class.

In S2, coming into the weekend, Christian Schureman led Ben Schermerhorn by a slim 15 points. Schermerhorn proved just how important the championship was and how he wanted to clinch it at his home track. He went to work on Saturday as he swept the sixth round of the season. As Schermerhorn dominated Saturday, Jack Bradley and Christian Schureman were left to fight for the second spot. Schureman won the race for second in the first heat, but the rest of the day, the spot would go to Bradley. On Sunday, Austin Schimmel was the only driver to break the 52-second barrier and grabbed the pole position by two tenths over Schermerhorn. Schimmel would struggle on the start of the first heat as Schermerhorn took the lead going into turn one. Ryan Rudolph held strong as he finished the first heat where he started, in third place. Heat two saw Schimmel nail the start, only to see his kart die halfway into the first lap. Schermerhorn once again checked out to a four-second win ahead of Schureman. The main was all Schermerhorn, as he led all 20 laps and beat out Bradley for the victory. Schureman would settle for second with Tase Flores a solid third. Schermerhorn’s near perfect weekend would provide him with the top spot in the championship, with Schureman back by 80 points.

Thursday, 15 August 2013 10:39
It has been an eye-opening season for the Rocky Mountain ProKart Challenge. The Superkarts! USA and US Rotax Max Challenge regional program will host its fourth and final weekend on August 23-25 at The Track at Centennial in Colorado.

The upcoming series finale will take the teams and competitors to a fairly new facility, located in the heart of the metro-Denver area.

The 8/10-mile course, opened in 2006, is located next to the CentennialAirport and boasts 21 turns and 24-foot elevation.

Rocky Mountain ProKart Challenge Hosts Colorado's Largest Regional Race of Season
Friday, 12 July 2013 18:38
The fourth and fifth rounds of the 2013 Rocky Mountain ProKart Challenge took place at the challenging Grand Junction Motor Speedway last weekend, and the racing was as good as the state has seen in many years. A long list of RMPKC regulars and championship contenders traveled in for the third stop of the season, and they were joined by quite a few out-of-region drivers who came to town to prepare for the upcoming Superkarts! USA Pro Tour SummerNationals, which will take place on the weekend of July 19-21. The event welcomed a season high number of race entries, and the racing easily matched the high level of participation, as those in attendance saw some of the best racing that has occurred within the state of Colorado all summer.

“A big thank you goes out to the racers who attended and the staff who kept the entire weekend on schedule,” commented Rocky Mountain PKC series director Stan Bryniarski. “The intense temperatures were a challenge, but it was still a fantastic weekend. The regular series competitors stood strong against the visiting Pro Tour pilots all weekend, and certainly have set up what will be an exciting three days at the SKUSA SummerNationals next weekend.”
