EKN Exclusive: Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 26 – Preview Series – KA100 Master
Tuesday, 31 October 2023 16:34

The KA100 Master class was introduced at the SuperNationals last year, reaching a sellout field following a strong push by EKN’s own Rob Howden. Now, the category is the only single-speed class for the elder drivers in the paddock after SKUSA dropped the longtime popular X30 Master division that lacked numbers during the registration process. That has brought together 45 drivers – some moving over from X30, some returning from last year’s class debut, and new names entering to become the second winner at the SuperNationals.

Martin Stone (Racing Edge Motorsports / Kosmic) wants to keep it one name in the history books under KA100 Master after SuperSunday. The defending inaugural race winner returns for a chance at a second SuperNationals victory, coming off a win at the ROK Vegas event in ROK Masters and runner-up result in VLR Masters. The top-three from last year’s podium returns with runner-up Renato Jader David (Orsolon Racing / Tony Kart) and Laurentiu Mardan (Tecno Kart USA) seeking a win. RJD is a former winner in the X30 Master class back in 2016, placing runner-up in that class last year to cap off a four-podium streak. Mardan was third a year ago, giving him a second SuperNationals podium result in his last four starts. Read full story on eKartingNews.com
 
EKN Exclusive: Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 26 – Preview Series – Master Shifter
Monday, 30 October 2023 16:53

Shifterkart racing is the foundation of Superkarts! USA, and continues to be a focal point of the organization now entering its 26th SuperNationals event. Master Shifter – or G1 – began at the 2000 event at the XPLEX facility on the south end of the Las Vegas. It had an 11-year run before the S4 Stock Moto division came in for 2006 and lasted until the move back to the G1 name in 2019. Now that the engine option is on the same level as the rest of the shifterkart programs around the world with the KZ platform, numbers have increased over the past two years, now welcoming 47 drivers from 12 different countries to add their name to the record books on SuperSunday.

The last driver on that list is Brazilian Antonio Pizzonia Jr. (Orsolon Racing / Birel ART) – who made 20 starts in Formula One from 2003-2005. Pizzonia was able to dominate last year’s race on SuperSunday to be able to complete the Vegas sweep, winning the ROK Vegas event prior to SuperNationals 25. The 2023 Florida Winter Tour champion is vying for a trio of big titles this season, coming off a repeat ROK Vegas victory heading to this year’s SuperNationals. Read full story on eKartingNews.com
 
EKN Exclusive: Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 26 – Preview Series – Mini Swift
Sunday, 29 October 2023 00:00

One of the most competitive categories throughout the season and every year at the SuperNationals is Mini Swift. A total of 12 different drivers have been able to hoist the trophy on SuperSunday over the 12 times the division has been offered at the SuperNationals. Among them include a current IndyCar driver (Pato O’Ward – 2010), Formula One driver (Logan Sargeant – 2011), University of Houston football player (Anthony Gangi Jr. – 2012), F4 champion (Jonny Edgar – 2015), Canadian NASCAR Pinty’s Rookie of the Year (Thomas Nepveu – 2016), and a pair of Trans Am race winners (Connor Zilisch – 2017, Brent Crews – 2018).

No driver has been able to repeat victory in the category. That is different this year as defending race winner Michael McGaughy (Ryan Perry Motorsport / Parolin) will be trying for a second straight SuperNationals victory. The Utah driver – making his third start at the SuperNationals – finished the season sixth in the SKUSA Pro Tour standings with a best result of runner-up, however, grabbed a victory in USPKS competition thanks to victory at New Castle and ended the year second in the standings.

EKN Exclusive: Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 26 – Preview Series – Micro Swift
Saturday, 28 October 2023 00:00

A total of six different drivers have won the six different times the Micro Swift category has been offered at the SKUSA SuperNationals. The class made its debut in 2016 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, welcoming four different winners from different countries – Brazil, Great Britian, USA and Australia. The last two call the United States home with Keelan Harvick and Jackson Gibson. Defending winner Gibson has graduated from the Micro class, providing the opportunity for a seventh different winner to write their name into the history books on SuperSunday.

The 2023 season has been a year of growth for the youngest category on the national scene, and this year’s field is big once again at 44 drivers set to compete. Nine of the top-10 finishers in this year’s SKUSA Pro Tour standings are in the field, including series champion Maxwell Macha (SLA Racing / Sodi Kart). Macha won twice over the six rounds in 2023, landing on the podium five times. He will be among the 33 drivers in the field making their SuperNationals debut. Winning three times with four podiums on the SKUSA Pro Tour was Mexican driver Juan Diego Garciarce (Orsolon Racing / Parolin). He is among the 11 drivers who were in the field last year, recording a DNF at SuperNationals 25. Josh Bergman (Piquet Sports / Sodi Kart) joined them on the championship podium in the third position. His best performance was victory in Utah at the SpringNationals.
