The California ProKart Challenge has the two final events of the 2019 season in sight for the month of September. The penultimate round for the Superkarts! USA regional program has teams and competitors heading to the Santa Maria Kart Track on September 7-8. The fifth round of the California PKC championship chase is set for the ‘Nationals Configuration’ of the Santa Maria, California facility.

The win streak for Billy Musgrave in the Croc Promotion USA/Mad Old Nut Pro Shifter category now sits at double digits. His victory at Round Four in Monterey puts his wins to 10 in a row, dating back to the start of the 2018 California PKC season. Texan Jake French has put the pressure on the last three rounds, stealing a quick time in qualifying bonus points back in Round Three to disrupt his perfect score streak on the year. Cody Hodgson is second ahead of French in the standings, holding three podium finishes on the year. Musgrave is also the championship leader in the Rolison Performance Group X30 Senior division. One win and two other podium finishes put him out front in the title chase ahead of Monterey winner and defending champion Joseph Daniele with a number of drivers fighting for third, led by Jacob Gulick.

The 2019 racing season may soon be drawing to a close, and while the memories of the year are still fresh in our minds, many are now turning their attention to the grand finale of them all – SKUSA SuperNationals 23. With less than 100 days until haulers begin setting up outside the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino for the November 20-24 event, Superkarts! USA is putting the final touches on the 23rd running of this historic event. Among the more crucial components of the SuperNationals experience is the event schedule, which will see a bit of change in the qualifying aspect for 2019.

The format from Wednesday through SuperSunday remains largely intact, with Wednesday providing four rounds of practice for both the morning and afternoon groups. Thursday has been modified to two rounds of practice ahead of a longer 12-minute qualifying session to be offered for all 10 race groups.

2019 IKF Sprint GrandNationals Set for Pat’s Acres Racing Complex
Monday, 19 August 2019 10:24

One of the most prestigious trophies in North American karting is the International Kart Federation’s ‘Duffy’. Originally known as the ‘Joe Karter’ award, the 12-inch solid bronze statuette was re-named to honor Frank ‘Duffy’ Livingstone – one of the original pioneers of karting. Each year after 1981, those drivers who were able to claim victory at the esteemed GrandNationals were awarded their own Duffy trophy. The iconic trophy is still a core goal for all members of the IKF, the first kart racing organization and sanctioning body in the United States. Those competing in the sprint karting program will have their next chance to claim a Duffy at the upcoming 2019 IKF Sprint GrandNationals at the Pat’s Acres Racing Complex in Canby, Oregon on September 20-22.

“We are excited to put the focus back into grassroots karting with the IKF,” stated Tom Kutscher, International Kart Federation President. “The IKF is the longest standing organization in our sport, having been created right in our backyard back in 1956. The combination of IKF, the Duffy and racing at the historic Pat’s Acres facility makes the Sprint GrandNationals a unique event for the 2019 season.”

The 10th annual Superkarts! USA SummerNationals are now an exciting chapter in the organization’s history, and the final round of the 2019 Pro Tour was waged on Sunday at New Castle Motorsports Park. The event was treated with almost perfect mid-August Indiana weather and the new track configuration helped to provide the stage for some tremendous racing and, of course, the crowning of SKUSA’s newest national champions. Rolison Performance Group’s Ryan Norberg made history, securing his fourth straight championship in the X30 Senior category, truly an unparalleled accomplishment in the 25-plus years of SKUSA competition. Norberg finished second to Mike Doty Racing’s Brandon Jarsocrak in an wild finish that had to be seen to be believed, but Ryan’s recovery from a lacklustre WinterNationals was the stuff of legend. In the Pro Shifter class, we witnessed the newest chapter in the emergence of Kyle Wick as the top driver in the sport, as the CRG Nordam pilot completed a strong and consistent season to secure the national championship and the national #1 plate for 2020. The Croc Promotion USA duo of Jake French and Billy Musgrave dominated the weekend with a pair of 1-2 finishes, with French re-establishing himself as a true shifterkart star, but it was Wick’s run of six consistent finishes that earned him a well-deserved title.
