EKN Exclusive: Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 22 – Preview Series – Pro Shifter

Shifterkart racing has been the backbone of the Superkarts! USA organization since its inception. In fact, it was the entire reason for SKUSA’s formation. As such, it was not until the inaugural event at the Rio in 2003 that single-speed karts were part of the SuperNationals. As is the case in the cyclical nature of our sport, numbers seemed to be dropping in the headline S1 shifterkart category until the establishment of the SKUSA Pro Tour in 2010. This national series fueled a rejuvenation of shifterkart racing in North America. Numbers have dwindled at the national level again, however and now SKUSA is moving the organization into a new direction, offering the Pro Shifter division for the first time. A combination of S1 Pro and S2 Semi-Pro classes brings the two categories together, which have been competing separately since 2010. The positive of this melding is a sold out field, as SKUSA opened up the entry to welcome 50 drivers.

At the forefront is the defending SuperNationals S1 winner Billy Musgrave. It was 2012 when the young SoCal driver won in his event debut, besting a tough S2 field for the victory at the Rio. Fast forward to 2017, and Musgrave piloted his MRC / Aluminos to the top step of the S1 podium on SuperSunday. The five-time California ProKart Challenge champion came up short in his bid for the Pro Tour title this year, and will head into Vegas with a vengeance and the goal to repeat. The driver to beat out Musgrave for the SKUSA Pro Tour was Florida’s AJ Myers. The perennial contender secured his fate with a dominating victory at the SummerNationals finale aboard the TB Kart machine. Myers has made the move to the Mad Croc Karting USA operation, placing fourth in his debut at the Streets of Lancaster Grand Prix. Myers now has more time on the chassis, and will be double dipping by running X30 Senior, as well. His best finish in S1 was in 2016, placing runner-up. Read full story on eKartingNews.com
