SuperNats24: Mission Possible - SuperKarts! Announces Forced Venue And Host Hotel Change For Upcoming SKUSA SuperNationals December 01-05, 2021
Monday, 15 November 2021 22:01

After many days of speculation, Superkarts! USA can finally confirm that they have been forced to change venues and host hotel for the upcoming SKUSA SuperNationals 24. The move comes on the heels of the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino electing to cancel their longstanding contract for 2021, just days before the scheduled event.

With an enforceable contract in hand, SKUSA pursued legal remedies to fight the hotel’s cancellation, including filing motions for a cease and desist and legal injunctions to prevent their termination of the contract.

“A courtroom is never a place any promoter wants to find themselves,” explained a frustrated Tom Kutscher. “While SKUSA’s legal team was confident the courts would uphold our contract and the Rio would be forced to honor the deal, the regrettable truth is that there are never guarantees in any lawsuit. With an entire industry reliant upon this race for revenue, it became increasingly harder to hold out for lawyers to do their thing. My worst nightmare was a scenario where we had no time to pursue an alternative plan in the off-chance courts didn’t rule our way. The race must take place, no matter what!”

As a result of the canceled contract, SKUSA has worked around the clock to find a suitable alternative — in Las Vegas, that had enough space to accommodate a proper SuperNationals. The venue had to accommodate a racetrack with 500+ drivers and supporting space for event infrastructure. This proved to be no easy feat, considering the short notice and other unrelated events in town the same weekend. After careful consideration, and with safety as the guiding factor, SKUSA can confirm they will be moving this year’s SuperNationals to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Located just 15 miles from the famous Las Vegas Strip, the Las Vegas Motor Speedway (LVMS) is still conveniently close to the tourist attractions so many attendees look forward to each year. LVMS is no stranger to hosting large caliber races, and has welcomed the likes of NHRA, NASCAR, IndyCar, and more.

“Let’s just say what some are thinking,” said SKUSA’s forthcoming principal. “Are you walking from your hotel room to your pit in the morning? No. You’re not. But LVMS has more than enough space to accommodate a world class race and it’s closer to our host hotel than many of our ProTour tracks are to those respective hotels. We have been dealt an unfair hand just 10 days before move-in, but we are so grateful to the Speedway for welcoming us on very short notice.”

With the racetrack moved, the next logical piece of the puzzle was a new host hotel. The December 01-05 weekend is an incredibly busy weekend as is in Las Vegas, with events like the National Finals Rodeo occurring at the same time. As many know, SKUSA has worked extremely hard to negotiate very affordable room rates for our racers and we are pleased to confirm a new hotel partner we couldn’t be more excited with.

For 2021 and beyond, SKUSA is pleased to confirm the new host hotel for SuperNationals 24 will be the beautiful 5-star Resorts World Las Vegas Hilton hotel on the Las Vegas Strip, that just opened in June 2021. The Resorts World property is the newest and hottest property on famous Las Vegas Blvd, boasting a variety of accommodations at multiple price points. Resorts World has 40 brand new bars and restaurants, impeccable rooftop lounge, and is the home to the new Zouk nightclub. Upon learning the disastrous position SKUSA was put in, the Resorts World upper management were incredibly eager to help any way they can and nearly matched the exact rates from the Rio. This is no small feat considering the jam-packed in Las Vegas the December 01-05 weekend.

The room rates are as follows:
  • $75 per night, Sunday through Thursday
  • $180 per night, Friday and Saturday
Also, SKUSA attendees will enjoy a reduced resort fee from $45 to $32 per night.

SKUSA’s Tom Kutscher was extremely enthusiastic. “Resorts World Las Vegas is quite easily the nicest host hotel in SKUSA history. But most of all, it’s affordable. Especially considering the dates, and how crowded the city is that weekend. Many comparable rooms are going for $300 or $400 per night. Upon learning about our situation, the decision makers at Resorts World worked incredibly hard to provide our event with affordable rooms on very short notice. We couldn’t be more appreciative of this opportunity to have them as our future partner.”

All Rio reservations made under the SKUSA room block have been cancelled by the Rio as of Monday, November 15th. New reservations may be made by clicking the following link:


Rooms are expected to go quickly, so SKUSA is encouraging everyone to move very swiftly. Since Resorts World is our new host hotel, registration will be held on the second floor and we encourage all guests to join us Sunday night at the rooftop Starlight Lounge and Zouk nightclub to celebrate our annual after party after another successful SKUSA SuperNationals.

Regrettably, with the forced venue and hotel change, SKUSA is forced to postpone the 2021 ProTour awards ceremony. Tentative plans are to find an alternate time and place in 2022 to awards this year’s champions.
