Official Statement of Intent from ROK Cup USA, SKUSA and USPKS
Monday, 20 June 2022 16:00
Starting immediately, the named organizations and their affiliated series will be working together to raise the level of professionalism in the sport of karting in the United States, both on the track and in the paddock.

We will be working together closely to develop a system which honors the disciplinary actions taken by one organization or series, across all named organizations and affiliated series. Our series will no longer be a place for bad behavior, to include, but not limited to both acts and threats of violence, by attendees and drivers alike. No competitor or attendee should have to worry about their physical safety at karting events in the United States and no longer will these bad actors be able to simply take that behavior to another series.
 
Fuel/Oil Separation
Written by Lynn Haddock - National Tech Director   
Friday, 23 April 2021 10:43
Recently we have had a few reports of fuel / oil separation. All of these came from area's where the weather is still quite cold (below 40 degrees). While these reports have been very isolated, we want to remind everyone of a couple of basic practices to help avoid problems in this regard:
  • Never leave mixed fuel in the tank overnight. It should always be drained back into a sealed container.
  • Mixed fuel should always be stored in the warmest available place.
  • Mixed fuel should always be vigorously shaken before pouring into the karts tank.
Please remember, the ELF 909 oil we use is an SAE-50 weight so extra care needs to be taken to ensure a good mix is attained.

“Luis Jauregui is a person who shares the same genuine passion for this sport as I do,” remarked an excited Tom Kutscher. The SKUSA president went on to add, “In 20 years, I have never seen anyone who cares more about the sport and its people than he does.

In what can only be described as a difficult year for the sport, Superkarts! USA is pleased to confirm and verify the prizes they gave out for the 2020 season. Earlier in the year, the Temecula based company vowed to give back even more to the racers. Despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, the series is proud to have made good on that commitment.

Many have asked what exactly we give back to the drivers and “we’re beyond proud to confirm we gave out nearly $300,000 in cash, prizes, and entry credits,” remarked Tom Kutscher. “It’s one thing to say it, but it’s another thing entirely to do it. In an era where we’re aiming to be more transparent with our racers, we felt it was very important to let people see the prizes we awarded.”
