Superkarts! USA Confirms 2011 Pro Tour Champions
Wednesday, 14 December 2011 12:50
The second season of the Superkarts! USA Pro Tour completed last month with the running of the SuperNationals XV in Las Vegas outside the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino. Following a record-breaking event that witnessed over 500 drivers competing, the eight championship categories closed out the final stop of the five round title chase - and decided just who would be part of the SKUSA ‘Circle of Champions.’ In each of the eight divisions, the top three drivers earned the coveted national number plates for the 2012 season in addition to the championship purse.

The two headline categories -- S1 Pro Stock Moto and TaG Senior -- were awarded roughly $18,000 in cash and prizes to split toward their championship fund. Superkarts! USA welcomed its first international driver to its champion alumni in S1. New Zealand’s Daniel Bray locked up the class title at the SuperNationals following a successful 2011 season. The 24-year old was the event winner at the SKUSA SpringNationals with two wins, and while the feature results were not as high as he had hoped, Bray scored the second highest total at the SummerNationals to lead the standings heading into the SuperNationals. Overcoming a mechanical issue in qualifying, Bray fought strong through the heat races and the main event to land third in the main event to secure the title. California driver Tom Dyer was his closest rival throughout the season. The veteran was the top performer at the SummerNationals, but come up just short in the end thanks to an upsetting finish at the SuperNationals to close the year second in the standings. S1 rookie Lukas Johnson was impressive in his first season, standing on the podium in three of the five feature races to earn the #3 plate for the 2012 season.

Superkarts! USA Announces 2012 Pro Tour Schedule
Friday, 09 September 2011 16:33
In an effort to continue the incredible momentum that the organization has been enjoying this season, Superkarts! USA is thrilled to be able to officially announce the dates for their 2012 Pro Tour. The second edition of SKUSA’s West Coast circuit enjoyed significant growth this past season, and more is expected in 2012 when the series travels to Phoenix, AZ for the SpringNationals in April. The traditional July scheduling of the SummerNationals is set -- with the actual venue to be announced soon. As has been the case for the last 15 years, Las Vegas will play host to the SuperNationals in November.

For 2012, the Pro Tour will kick off with the third annual SpringNationals on April 20-22 at the Phoenix Kart Racing Association facility in Glendale, AZ. The venue for the SummerNationals is currently in the works, pending final discussions and a pair of site inspections on two potential locations. The date has been confirmed for the July 20-22 weekend. The traditional cap to the season will be the SuperNationals at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino on November 14-18, 2012 -- dates that have been contracted through 2013.

“I would have liked to have been able to officially announce both venues at this time, but we need to do a little more work before this can happen,” offers Tom Kutscher, Superkarts! USA President. “That said, I feel that it is important to our drivers and teams to get our dates out as soon as possible, so that they can begin assembling their 2012 travel schedules. We’re very close to a decision on the SummerNationals location, and I expect that it will be confirmed before we head to Las Vegas.”

EKN Trackside: SKUSA Pro Tour MothersĀ® SummerNationals - Sunday Report
Written by eKartingNews.com   
Monday, 18 July 2011 00:00
The fourth round of the Superkarts! USA Pro Tour completed on Sunday as the Mothers® SummerNationals wrapped up at the Grand Junction Motor Speedway in Colorado. An interesting day of weather surrounded the area with rain storms pushing their way around the facility throughout the racing action, allowing for a dry but hot day around the 9/10-mile course. The racing action picked up, as you typically see in the final day of events, producing some great racing. Stamping his name in the championship chase was S1 driver Tom Dyer as he piloted his Aluminos entry to the win and event victory while IndyCar Series driver Martin Plowman scored the TaG Senior win.

S1 Pro Stock Moto
The S1 Pro Stock Moto category was positioned as the headline class for Sunday’s action, last to hit the track for qualifying. On his out lap, Kiwi driver Daniel Bray (GP) took the provisional pole with a 52.796. Rookie Lukas Johnson (GP) struck back the next lap to take over the spot. At the same time, Saturday winner Brad Dunford (GP) moved into second. Lap three was Bray’s for the taking as he retook the pole position and held it through the end of the session. His 52.282-lap was best with Johnson pushed back to second. Tom Dyer (GP) was last to hit the track and moved up to third on his second circuit, moving Dunford down to fourth and Ryon Beachner (Tony Kart) rounding out the fast-five.
