SKUSA SummerNationals Sees SKUSA Reaffirm Their Commitment To Safety. A Bigger Purse. Food. Music, And More.
Wednesday, 29 July 2020 14:22


With the SKUSA ProTour event just days away, Superkarts! USA is incredibly pleased to offer a fun-filled and action-packed group of consecutive events at the nation’s leading facility – New Castle Motorsports Park. With the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, the series is acutely aware this may be the single biggest karting event of 2020 and are planning accordingly.

First and foremost, safety is key. With the recent Indiana state mandate and requirement of face masks, SKUSA will be providing complimentary SKUSA branded face coverings for those who do not have their own. Social distancing and virus mitigation will be paramount for both weekends, with a priority placed on safety above all else. Track proprietors have been collaborating very closely with Indiana county and state officials to work hand in hand on providing the safest possible conditions for the event to occur. The track is also in regular communication with the state excide (Indiana Coronavirus task force) and Henry County Health Department to keep abreast of every breaking development.

“We can appreciate after NOLA the uncertainty and uneasiness in entering a national event,” remarked Tom Kutscher. “Rest assured, every conceivable angle of safety has been considered and the track is working very closely with regulators to ensure there are no disruptions in the festivities. Indiana as a state, are very far along in the reopening process. Currently, Indiana is at a 4.5 reopening stage. Naturally our event will require cooperation from our guests with respects to face coverings and maintaining social distance, but we feel extremely confident in proceeding.”

Thursday, 16 July 2020 16:02

The 2020 season resumed for the California ProKart Challenge program with Rounds Four and Five contested at the Santa Maria Karting Association facility. Teams and competitors of the Superkarts! USA regional program ventured to the facility just outside the Santa Maria Airport and minutes from the Pacific coast over the July 10-12 weekend. The weather was perfect all weekend long and everyone within the paddock complied with the COVID-19 guidelines set out prior to the event. On-track, a number of drivers were able to come away with a double victory weekend as the championship chase becomes more defined heading toward the series finale.

Extending his win streak on the season to four is X30 Master driver Billy Cleavelin. The two-time SKUSA SuperNationals winner was perfect on the weekend, finishing every session in the top spot. Saturday was a wire-to-wire victory in the Final to an 11-second advantage over Jure Gaspar and Jeff Rice. Sunday was a similar performance, leading all 24 laps in the main event to a 14-second margin of victory. Alan Morte improved to second with Gaspar in third. The result is four straight perfect rounds for Cleavelin to maintain the championship lead.

SUPERKARTS! USA Confirms Details For Upcoming SKUSA Protour Double Header In New Castle Indiana
Wednesday, 15 July 2020 20:54


 

With the entirety of the 2020 SKUSA ProTour now consolidated into back-to-back consecutive weekends, details are beginning to emerge for both the SKUSA ProTour and some of the supplemental events supporting the dual weekend format.

“With the sport and country on lockdown the last four months, we have received a ton of questions on what we’re going to do following the canceled event at NOLA,” said SKUSA president Tom Kutscher. “Needless to say, finding a solution that was both reasonable and equitable became our top priority as we began planning. Let me tell you this... We’re going to make the 2020 ProTour as kick ass as we possibly can, considering what a mess this year has been.”

As many now know, the format for the upcoming double-header is to consolidate six rounds of ProTour racing into two consecutive race weekends. Such a change requires rethinking everything from the pitting procedure to the purse payout. SKUSA is pleased to say they’ve risen to the challenge.
