Superkarts! USA Adds Texas ProKart Challenge to Regional Line-up
Tuesday, 31 January 2012 12:25
It’s been a number of years since an official Superkarts! USA event has been run in Texas, but this will change during the 2012 season as the SKUSA National Office is thrilled to announce the formation of an official regional program in the Lone Star State. The organization has long enjoyed strong participation from the Texas karting community, especially at the annual SuperNationals, making this a huge step towards further developing their growing regional platform. The new Texas ProKart Challenge will consist of three double-race weekends, running with the Gulf Coast Karters in Katy, Grandsport Speedway in Houston, and the North Texas Karters in Denton. This announcement comes hot on the heels of the recent confirmation of SKUSA’s renewed involvement in the Pacific Northwest, and sets the stage for an exciting season in 2012.

“Texas has an incredible wealth of talent, and we’re always happy to be able to host so many of them every year at the SuperNationals,” said Tom Kutscher, Superkarts! USA President. “The announcement of this new region in Texas means a lot to us, and it’s a major addition to our growing regional program. Expanding the reach of our Stock Moto and TaG rules package is a primary goal here at SKUSA, and I’m pleased to be able to begin what I believe will be a long relationship with the Texas karting community.”

The following is the schedule for this year’s debut season:

2012 Texas ProKart Challenge
May 5-6: Gulf Coast Karters - Katy, TX
June 2-3: Grandsport Speedway - Houston, TX
June 30-July 1: North Texas Karters - Denton, TX

Superkarts! USA Returns to Pacific Northwest
Thursday, 12 January 2012 11:44
For many racers in the Pacific Northwest, the annual November pilgrimage to the Rio All Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas is the culmination of a season’s worth of hard work and preparation. In response to the growing field of SKUSA racers in the PNW, the promoters of this new program are proud to announce the formation of the Northwest Karting Challenge. The program will be a five-weekend, 10-race series hosted by two of the northwest’s premier karting facilities, Pat’s Acres Racing Complex and PGP Motorsports Park.
 
“I am very excited to be back to where it all started, Superkarts! USA,” offered Pat’s Acres owner and series promoter Chris Egger. “I’m thrilled to be back under the SKUSA umbrella for our series and our shifterkart customers. SKUSA has a lot to offer right now and we are glad to be a part of it. Having been involved in the shifterkart explosion back in the late 90's, I‘m looking forward to being part of the regional resurgence that is happening around the country. This is a big step for the shifterkart pilots in our region!”

EKN Trackside Live: Streets of Lancaster Grand Prix Race Preview
Written by eKartingNews.com   
Friday, 07 October 2011 00:00
There was a palpable level of excitement on the streets of Lancaster, California on Friday morning, as final preparations were being made for this coming weekend’s Grand Prix. The city’s downtown core was taken over on Thursday morning and crews worked throughout day and late into the evening, hauling haybales, plastic barriers and fencing into place around the 0.8-mile temporary circuit. The third annual Streets of Lancaster Grand Prix may fire up officially on Saturday morning, but only thanks to months and months of planning and management. After all that work, it’s finally time to go racing in Lancaster.

The City of Lancaster approached the Superkarts! USA promotional team earlier this year in an effort to raise the bar for their Grand Prix, and the new partnership has resulted in several adjustments, both to the class structure and the physical layout of the track. The class line-up for the race was evolved to include much of the SKUSA / ProKart Challenge structure, but the addition of a PRD class has brought in additional racers, although not as many as were expected. Regardless, both Stock Moto and TaG racing will be front-and-center this weekend to excite those in the trackside viewing areas, which are expected to be packed. One of SKUSA’s primary moves was to re-locate the track to the west a couple of blocks right into the downtown core, the Boulevard, which will provide a new look to the layout. Supporting the local business community is a key goal in the planning of this race, and SKUSA’s Tom Kutscher wanted to make sure that these businesses would see increased traffic as a result. The new track is positioned right in the middle of a thriving area filled with restaurants, bars and shops, and will include four 90-degrees corners and a tight hairpin that leads onto a 1000’ straightaway, one that will likely support the nickname that is being thrown around – ‘the Fastest Street Race in American Karting’. A $200 check awaits the first driver to hit the 100 mph mark in the speed trap that the local law enforcement has set up in turn five. Most people have their money on Pro Shifter drivers Brad Dunford, Clinton Schoombee or Nicky Freytag or S4 stud Jimmy McNeil.
