The 2022 California ProKart Challenge is set to begin on the April 23-24 weekend at the Buttonwillow Raceway Park. The 18th season of the program kicks off at the Buttonwillow, California facility, welcoming the Superkarts! USA regional competitors for the opening round of the six-round championship.

The Buttonwillow Raceway Park has been a consistent destination for the California ProKart Challenge, largely due to its central location between NorCal and SoCal. The opening round this year is slated for the national circuit in the counter-clockwise direction, including the popular ‘Spa’ and ‘Le Mans’ section that produce exciting finishes.

This year’s series format will again be a ‘Best 5 of 6 races’, with competitors having the ability to drop one round towards their year-end points total. Following the upcoming season opener, the California ProKart Challenge returns to Buttonwillow on May 14-15 for Round Two in the ‘clockwise’ direction. June welcomes the lone ‘double-header’ weekend, with two rounds contested over the June 24-26 weekend at the CalSpeed Karting facility. The series will take off July and August before visiting the historic Santa Maria Karting Association facility on September 10-11 for Round Five. The final round is a return to CalSpeed on October 1-2. The single-round weekends will feature a full day of practice plus qualifying on Saturday, with Prefinal and Final action contested on Sunday.

The California ProKart Challenge hosted the penultimate round of the 2021 season on the September 11-12 weekend at the Willow Springs International Raceway. The Rosamond, California facility has been the site of many Superkarts! USA regional program events in the past, including both the famed Streets of Willow course and the karting circuit. The two-day event for Round Five of the 2021 championship program was held on the nine-turn, 6/10-mile kart track in the counter-clockwise direction.

Blake Nash put himself back into the championship chase with his first victory in the Nash Motorsportz KA100 Senior class since the season opener. His performance on the weekend was a near perfect two days that began with a blitzing fast lap in qualifying. Nash laid down a 45.855-second lap to clear the 28-driver field by three tenths of a second. The following day, Nash led all 14 laps in the Prefinal to a 1.5-second advantage. The 24-lap Final began with Oliver Calvo getting the jump on Nash, leading the opening eight laps. Nash took over the position on lap nine and showed the way the remainder of the race for the victory. Calvo finished second, helping his efforts toward the series championship. Aiden Kempf joined them on the podium in third with Colby Dubato and Ayden Aquino completing the top-five. Championship leader Dante Yu was seventh, setting up for an exciting final round.
