The 2019 season marks the 10th year of the Superkarts! USA Pro Tour. It all began in California with a trip to Sonoma for the inaugural event in 2010. Everything comes full circle as the Pro Tour kicks off the 10th season in the Golden State, making its first ever visit to the CalSpeed Karting facility in Fontana. The third edition of the WinterNationals moves cross-country from NOLA to outside the Auto Club Speedway, with 200 pre-registered drivers set to do battle on the newly revised ‘Grande’ circuit.

Superkarts! USA Announces Massive Prize Package for 2019 Pro Tour
Tuesday, 29 January 2019 10:26

The 2019 season marks the 10th year of the sport’s only national series – the Superkarts! USA Pro Tour. Initially launched in April of 2010, the SKUSA Pro Tour has grown throughout the previous nine seasons of competition, creating lasting memories, establishing current stars in the sport, developing drivers for the professional ranks, and all while remaining the premier championship series in North America. From the very first season, the weekend and year-end prize package has been a focal point for the organization, and this approach continues into the 2019 season with a staggering $162,000 prize purse for this year’s series, supported significantly by SKUSA’s passionate partners at MG Tires.

“From the day that I stepped in, we have been about giving back to the racers,” stated Superkarts! USA principal Tom Kutscher. “This is our 10th anniversary of the SKUSA Pro Tour, and we wanted to make sure the racers were rewarded for their support and their success on the track. Our staff spoke with a number of the race teams, competitors and families who have supported what we do year after year, and we tailored our prize package around their input as best we could. This is a prize package you can’t match anywhere, and I’m thankful to have our partners at MG Tires on-board with our efforts.”

Superkarts! USA Confirms Tire Change for X30 Junior
Tuesday, 22 January 2019 09:18

The 2019 racing season is officially underway for the Superkarts! USA program, as their track team hosted the first major event of the calendar year, launching the second year of the SKUSA Winter Series in Florida. Following the upcoming series finale in February at the AMR Homestead-Miami Motorplex presented by MG Tires, all of SKUSA’s attention will turn to the tenth season of the SKUSA Pro Tour and their growing ProKart Challenge programs for 2019.

The new season is one of adjustment, specifically in the class structure area. One of the major updates is the move to the Evinco Blue “H” spec tire for the X30 Junior division. Since the introduction of the Evinco tires into Superkarts! USA competition, the category has followed the same compound as the other X30 categories, utilizing the Evinco Red “M” tire. The Blue “H” is a harder compound for the X30 Junior drivers, and is the same tire required in the KA100 Senior and KA100 Junior categories.

Superkarts! USA completed its ninth season of the SKUSA Pro Tour this August. The three-event, six-round championship program traveled from the southeast to the southwest before finishing in the midwest to decide the nine series champions in the IAME and Honda categories. Those drivers who were able to achieve podium finishes throughout the season, earn enough points to be crowned champion or finish the season among the top-three were all able to grab a portion of the near $100,000 prize package for the 2018-2019 seasons.

Beginning in March, the WinterNationals kicked off the 2018 season at NOLA Motorsports Park in New Orleans. The Phoenix Kart Racing Association then welcomed the SKUSA Pro Tour for the SpringNationals once again in May. The 2018 championship chases were then decided at the New Castle Motorsports Park for the SummerNationals in Indiana in August.

The final day of the Superkarts! USA Pro Tour for the 2018 season went into the books on Sunday. The sixth and final round of the championship chase took place at the New Castle Motorsports Park to close out the ninth edition of the SummerNationals. Weather remained warm and humid, with no issues of rain sliding into the area to disrupt what was the closing laps of the 2018 SKUSA Pro Tour and deciding all nine champions for the 2018 season.

Coming into the weekend, the S1 Pro Stock Honda division was up for grabs. TB Kart USA driver AJ Myers entered the weekend third in the standings, riding on his victory at the WinterNationals. Myers, a double winner at the 2016 event, was runner-up on Saturday to help to close the gap on championship leader Billy Musgrave (MRC / Aluminos). Myers made sure to put things in his hands by dominating the day to score maximum points and earn his first SKUSA Pro Tour championship. Myers went untouched on the day, leading all laps in the Prefinal and Final along with fast laps of the race in both. 2017 champ Jake French (DKC / Sodikart) bounced back from a DNF in the Prefinal to advance seven spots to second, with Kyle Wick (RPG / CRG) completing the podium. Saturday winner Hunter Pickett (Sodikart) drove to fourth with Nic LeDuc (Sodikart) in fifth. Read full story on eKartingNews.com
