This weekend – January 8-10 – we will attempt to put away 2020 as we begin the 2021 racing calendar with the launch of the Superkarts! USA Winter Series. The ‘Spring Training’ program begins its fourth season with the opening two rounds at the AMR Homestead-Miami Motorplex presented by MG Tires. Racers and teams will use this weekend to begin the process of setting up their 2021 programs, with those moving to new homes and chassis brands, others graduating up or moving to another category for the new season. All of that begins with the opening weekend of the SKUSA Winter Series around the 7/10-mile AMR circuit in the clockwise direction, welcoming over 200 entries in the nine categories.

SuperKarts! USA Announces Joint Partnership With KBR To Form ‘SKUSA Mexico’ For 2021 Season
Thursday, 17 December 2020 14:45


2021 Is still a few weeks away, but the mood is already positive in SKUSA’s main office. Superkarts! USA and Mexico’s KBR are excited to officially announce SKUSA Mexico, kicking off in January 2021 in Mexico City. The joint venture aims to combine the success and model of the SKUSA platform with an already thriving and successful regional program, south of the border.

“Luis Jauregui is a person who shares the same genuine passion for this sport as I do,” remarked an excited Tom Kutscher. The SKUSA president went on to add, “In 20 years, I have never seen anyone who cares more about the sport and its people than he does. Watching him this weekend, interact with everyone, offering support and hearing everyone out, made me so excited for this next chapter.”

SKUSA will be supporting the new venture with insight, training, logistics, and key personnel. With its existing portfolio of Evinco Tires, IAME, and race sanctioning and promotion, Superkarts! USA are committing to augmenting the early success already occurring in Mexico City.

IAME USA West’s Alexis Kutscher commented, “We will be bringing our key employees to Mexico to help train and support the KBR staff. In everything from tech, to officiating, our plan is to preserve a model that’s proven successful in the continental United States.” She also shared “we had the great pleasure of attending KBR’s regional final and we were very impressed with the turnout, the professionalism, and the shared passion for racing.”

The six-race series kicks off January 30-31 in Mexico City and consists of six rounds to make up the 2021 championship. With a class format the mimics that of SKUSA’s ProTour, the SKUSA Mexico class structure will be as follows:

SuperKarts! USA Giving Back To The Drivers Despite A Difficult Year
Tuesday, 01 December 2020 15:42
In what can only be described as a difficult year for the sport, Superkarts! USA is pleased to confirm and verify the prizes they gave out for the 2020 season. Earlier in the year, the Temecula based company vowed to give back even more to the racers. Despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, the series is proud to have made good on that commitment.

Many have asked what exactly we give back to the drivers and “we’re beyond proud to confirm we gave out nearly $300,000 in cash, prizes, and entry credits,” remarked Tom Kutscher. “It’s one thing to say it, but it’s another thing entirely to do it. In an era where we’re aiming to be more transparent with our racers, we felt it was very important to let people see the prizes we awarded.”

For anyone interested, the full breakdown is here and includes some of the following highlights:

California ProKart Challenge Champions Decided for 2020
Friday, 16 October 2020 07:12

The ProKart Challenge closed out its 16th season with the sixth and final round of 2020. Competitors filled the paddock of the Buttonwillow Raceway Park in Buttonwillow, California for Round Six of the championship chase on September 26-27. The two days of competition around the 3/4-mile circuit gave title contenders the final chance to claim one of the 12 championships on the line.

The largest category of the weekend was the KA100 Senior division, welcoming 33 drivers. All were chasing Nick Ramirez as the 2019 SKUSA Pro Tour vice-champion swept the round. The top-five in qualifying were separated by just under one tenth, as Ramirez came away with quick time. Ramirez went on to lead all 12 laps of the Prefinal to a two-second advantage before he was challenged in the main event. Jake Drew finished second, and jumped out to the lead in the Final. The two went back and forth in the final few laps of the 22-lap feature, with Ramirez winning the race to the checkered flag. Michael Michoff completed the podium while Joey Brienza finished fourth and Kyle Hayner fifth. Championship leader Trey Brown recorded a difficult 20th place finish, but in the end recorded enough points to secure the title over Michoff and Jacob Yesnick.
