The opening weekend of the 2020 Superkarts! USA Pro Tour is at the halfway point with the completion of Saturday’s Round Two action at the New Castle Motorsports Park. Perfect weather conditions greeted the competitors at the New Castle, Indiana facility and the eight race groups including 12 categories.

The X30 Senior field put on another great show in what looked to be the first time a female driver won on the SKUSA Pro Tour. Ashley Rogero (Nitro / Kosmic) and Hannah Greenemeier (RPG / Kosmic) fought at the front of the Prefinal with Rogero making a slight mistake on the final circuit and Greenemeier earning the win. Issues on the opening circuit of the main event dropped Hannah back in the pack, allowing Will Power Kart drivers Braden Eves, Arias Deukmedjian and Phillip Arscott to control the top spot. Senior rookies Bryson Morris (RPG / Kosmic) and Luca Mars (SCR / Redspeed) joined the fight at the front in addition to four-time champion Ryan Norberg (RPG / Kosmic). Mars came away with the top spot at the end, leading on the final circuit. Eves put himself into second to pressure Mars. Heading into I-70 corner, Mars ran defensive and Eves took the high line. He held it all the way around the entire turn to beat Mars to the exit point. Eves held on at the checkered flag for the provisional victory. A pushback bumper penalty took the win away, dropping him to sixth. That promoted Mars to the top of the podium for his first victory. Deukmedjian was classified second with Norberg in third. Morris was fourth with Canadian Thomas Nepveu (PSL / Birel ART) classified fifth after Brandon Jarsocrak (MDR / Kosmic) suffered a pushback bumper penalty, dropping him to ninth.
