Racing action kicked off on Friday at the Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 25 outside the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. Two rounds of heat races for both the morning categories and afternoon group were completed to set the opening act toward victory on SuperSunday in Las Vegas. The weather was overcast, as temps remained in the lower 60s with a stronger wind once the sun set, bringing a cool crisp air into the area for the final few heat races on the day. Spanish driver Pedro Hiltbrand (PSL / Birel ART) and Ryan Norberg (RPG / Kosmic) set the tone in the headline divisions with two heat race wins each while Junior driver Caleb Gafrarar (RPG / Kosmic) won four on the day.

Gafrarar was able to win the opening heat race on the day, starting the KA100 Junior AvsD race from sixth. Gafrarar knifed his way to the front, taking the win by 1.7 seconds over Rolison Performance Group teammates Max Taylor and Ernesto Rivera. Junior rookie and last year’s Mini Swift winner Enzo Vidmontiene (MottazSport / Kart Republic) won the BvsC race, climbing up five positions and bringing Oliver Wheldon (JC / LN Racing Kart) with him to second. USPKS champion Helio Meza (IRM / Tony Kart) improved six spots on the AvsC heat with top qualifier Steven Miller (CDR / Alonso Kart) in second. Gafrarar closed out the day for the class with a win ahead of SKUSA Pro Tour champion Jesus Vasquez Jr. (Nash / EOS) and Max Garcia (MPG / Kart Republic). Read full story on
