Pit Spots Reservations, Pit Rules & Tent Rentals for SuperNats 23
As always, we are working like crazy here at SKUSA headquarters to prepare for the biggest kart race in the world!

We are excited to once again be back at the Rio Hotel and Casino – with our event located just outside the hotel in the parking lot. And with more than 550 racers expected, our goal is to fit everyone in as efficiently as possible, while giving the drivers and teams maximum exposure and minimum exertion.

PLEASE read ALL of the directions below carefully and submit your pit spot request in writing only AS ONE COMPLETE PIT REQUEST! Email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or fax to 951-491-0809. We will acknowledge receipt of your pit request within 24-48 hours. If you have questions about your pit spot, please get answers to your questions BEFORE submitting your request (to reduce multiple requests/revisions). If you don’t receive a confirmation of your fax or email within 24-48 hours, please call 951-491-0808 to confirm that it was received (and leave a message with name and phone number if we do not answer. We do not return calls without messages being left.) PLEASE SPEND SOME QUALITY TIME ON YOUR PIT MAP DESIGN – THIS IS CRITICAL TO GETTING WHAT YOU NEED!


Our usual TIGHT restrictions from the Clark County Fire Department means ABSOLUTELY NO FUEL IS ALLOWED TO BE BROUGHT INTO THE PITS! ALL Trailers will be inspected and turned away (or parked off-site) if fuel is found on board. The only exception is 5 or less gallons of generator fuel per trailer (and a minimal amount in kart fuel tanks). All fuel/oil needed for this event will be sold on site every day and stored in the farm. NO pre-orders are necessary or requested.

Additionally, Please refer to SKUSA rulebook update10. with regards to Fire Extinguishers, as these rules will be strictly enforced: Fire Extinguishers: Every entrant’s pit area shall have a minimum of one 5-lb type ABC rated fire extinguisher for every 400 square feet of pit area. Fire extinguishers must be visible and accessible at all times. Competitors with trailers over 20-ft long shall have a minimum of one 20-lb type ABC fire extinguisher for the trailer in addition to one 5-lb unit for each 400 square feet of pit area. All competitors within a pit area that are found to be noncompliant at an event will be removed from competition until in compliance.”

A Pit Spot Drawing is Mandatory – 280 Square-Foot-Rule Applies!

For every driver and/or team needing a pit spot, if you know EXACTLY how much space you will need for your pit spot, AND IF ALL DRIVERS IN YOUR PIT SPOT ARE ALREADY REGISTERED for the race, you are ready to submit your pit request.

Due to the uniqueness of this venue’s paddock and the amount of teams attending, we will be reviewing pit requests very carefully to assure each space requested is used as efficiently as possible. An efficient pit utilizes no more than 280 square feet per competitor. With the exception of a single entry in a single pit space, there MUST be an entered driver listed on the map or attached sheet per 280 square feet or the request will be returned back to you as “incomplete”. 

Please scan and email (or fax) a complete drawing to the SKUSA office. What your drawing must include is described below, AND WILL BE REJECTED IF IT IS INCOMPLETE. If you are faxing a drawing, it’s a good idea to call to verify receipt. Fax # again is 951-491-0809 and phone # again is 951-491-0808. Please DO NOT send a note that just says, “I want what I had last year.” All pit layout details, including a complete driver list, AND ANY SPECIAL REQUESTS must be submitted IN WRITING for approval. The general area pits are mostly rows of spots 10’W x 40’D, although there are a few sections that vary in size (Row sizes are listed at the end or beginning of each row). Your drawing MUST reflect multiples of these areas AS WELL AS SPECIFY YOUR TOP 3 PREFERRED LOCATIONS by row and space number, per the attached pit map.

Pit Request Submittals

Here are the items to include on your PIT REQUEST drawing:

Note: All items below must be addressed and completed in order for SKUSA to consider your pit request as valid.
  • Official Team Name – preferably in the SUBJECT line of your email with the words SNATS PIT REQUEST
  • A black and white PDF file (NO phone pictures, please). The drawing needs to be sent as a file attachment to an email or a separate page, if faxed.
  • Fully drawn layout – with dimensions in feet – of your total pit area. PLEASE BE EXACT, AND DO NOT REQUEST MORE SPACE THAN YOU TRULY NEED. REMEMBER THE 280 SQUARE FOOT RULE! You will most likely not be able to add space when you arrive. Please add a directional arrow for where the track will be in relation to your pit. Additionally (per the Fire Marshall), please indicate the exits to your pit area.
  • Include where tents will go, trailers (only if they need to be within your pit), E-Z ups, VIP area, etc, in relation to the track. PLEASE ADVISE IF WE CAN PARK YOUR TRAILER IN AN AREA SEPARATE FROM YOUR PIT.
  • Include space for trailer doors, especially if you will need to be able to open and close them during the event or leave them open to retrieve parts. Generator exhaust pipes and trailer tip outs must also be within your space.
  • Include a list of the drivers that will be pitting in your pit spot. NOTE: They all must be registered before we can confirm your pit spot. (It is a good idea to tell each of them to list your team name as the one on their entry.)
  • Include the pit requester’s name and the best daytime contact info (cell phone and email). Time zone is also helpful, unless you have a full billing/mailing address included on the request.
  • If the person who is responsible for parking the trailer is different from the requester, please provide us with that person’s name and cell number as the point of contact on site.
  • Tell us whether you’ll be renting a tent, bringing your own, or both. Show tent opening(s) on your drawing, especially in relation to trailers (and the track).
  • When creating your drawing, assume your pit spot may be surrounded on three sides by others, and that access to your pit may only be from one side.
  • There is absolutely NO overnight camping in the pits, so please do NOT bring an RV or plan for one in your pit spot. Toy haulers will be allowed in as pit vehicles only with strict pre-approval -- but staying in them overnight is not allowed. Violators will be removed from the premises. Likewise, passenger vehicles will not be allowed in and out of the pits during the event, so there is no need to accommodate space for them inside of your pit spot.

Sponsor/Vendor Spots Are Available

Per the pit map posted above, SKUSA has up to 26-10’ x 15’ spots right on the main foot traffic isle of Supernats 23 – as well as custom spaces available – for approved vendors and/or sponsors to display or sell products. Any interested parties that have not already been in contact with the SKUSA head office, please send an email immediately to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it with info on your company, your display needs, and to request a brochure with pricing/availability on either pre-tented or un-tented spaces. If you have not received a response to your emailed request, please call and leave a message at 951-491-0808.

Rental Tents and Equipment – Exclusive Tent Vendor: Source 1 Events

The EXCLUSIVE rental tent vendor is Source 1 Events (formerly Nevada Tent & Events). NO OTHER TENT VENDORS WILL BE ALLOWED ON SITE. Their contact info, as well as some new 2019 requirements, are posted below. They also have additional rental items – like tables, chairs, linens, and rental equipment. Contact them ASAP to order what you will need, based on your requested pit space. We will work with them to finalize the size and location of your rental tent and equipment. Remember, a 20x20’ tent will not fit in a 20x20’ space. The tent needs room for stakes to hold it down. Keep this in mind when determining your pit and tent size.

Source 1 Events will be installing tents on a first ordered-first installed basis. An “Early Bird discount” of $1.10 per square foot will be applied to all orders received and paid by 11/1/2019. All orders placed or paid after 11/1 will be charged at the premium rate of $1.50 per square foot.

Tent Permits - Self-Owned Tents

Other Rental Equipment

Due to insurance reasons, any teams choosing to rent other electrical items for their pit spot, like a generator, must notify Superkarts! USA, in addition to renting them from Source 1, as these rental items must be secured/documented through our operations department. Please send an email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or call Stan at 219-841-1367.


The Rio provides catering services, and they have strict guidelines regarding outside caterers. Any team managers that would like more information are asked to send an email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it with a preliminary RFP. DO NOT BOOK OUTSIDE CATERERS WITHOUT CONSULTING SKUSA. THEY WILL BE TURNED AWAY AT THE GATES.

Pit Move-In

Pit move in will begin on Sunday November 17th for the big rigs ONLY (Big Rigs are defined as 40’ trailers or larger), and Monday, the 18th for everyone else. Enter the staging lot from Twain Dr.(by the Carnival World Buffet sign).ALL teams must enter from this direction ONLY.
NOTE: The paddock area defined as the “G” section is the staging area for all teams awaiting to be placed in their pit space. Due to this, any team assigned a pit space in the G-section will not be placed until Monday the 18th regardless of size trailer. Full move-in must be complete by Tuesday evening, Nov.19th at 6pm. Pits will be closed and no further pitting or placement of trailers will take place after this time, as practice starts Wednesday morning, the 20th (without prior approval from SKUSA). A tentative event schedule is posted HERE

Trailer Placement

No trailer(s) will be placed UNLESS the team manager or the person who ordered the space is present. Teams with multiple trailers must have the team manager present to proceed. Hired drivers must have a copy of the receipt, drawing and a direct contact number of the owner or team manager.

Tow Vehicles

Upon placement and disconnect of the trailer, tow vehicles are to be parked in the designated parking lots and garages provided by the Rio. All tow vehicles will be marked upon entering the paddock with the corresponding pit space number. Any vehicle that does not have this identification or is found to have altered this identification will be towed without notice – and will not be allowed back into the pits for move-out. Note: Tow vehicles are not rental cars or vans full of people; these vehicles are expected to park in the designated visitor/guest/spectator areas provided by the Rio. Vehicles that are bringing in equipment will be marked and expected to unload within a reasonable amount of time and park in the designated areas provided.

Pit Move-Out

Move out will begin Sunday night, Nov. 24th at approx. 4:30pm (at the conclusion of podium awards at scales and final clearance at Tech), and must be complete by 1pm on Monday, Nov. 25th (keep your wristband on for access to the parking lot on Monday for move-out). If you need access to the pit area beyond these hours, contact the Operations Director (Stan). Refer to the event schedule and signs posted on site for more move-out details.

NOTE: Due to insurance regulations and permit stipulations enforced by Clark County, no unauthorized vehicles are allowed to move within the pit area – and all lanes must remain open and unobstructed – while the track is hot. Additionally, NO early move-out can take place, as described above. In order to secure personal belongings and safety, the pit area will be locked down until official move-out begins. Any violation of this policy will affect future participation in any and all Superkarts! USA events.

Pit Spot Confirmation/Billing

The SKUSA office personnel will be in touch to confirm each pit reservation submitted, and will secure payment with you when we have you placed on the pit map. Any pit request canceled on or after 11/1/19 will be charged a cancelation fee of $50.00. 

Vehicles in the Pits

Due to insurance restrictions and safety purposes, SKUSA has updated the following rules for this year’s event:
  • NO golf carts will be allowed in the pits during this event. Bikes are only allowed for engine builders (and those who have received a special access pass from the Registration Desk or SKUSA operations personnel).
  • NO skateboards, scooters, mopeds, motorcycles – motorized or not – will be allowed to be moving in the pits at all during this event.
  • Anyone caught violating these rules or moving in an unsafe manner at all during this event will be subject to confiscation of their vehicle and/or possible expulsion from the premises.
  • Persons with disabilities will be given a waiver on these rules as long as the vehicle is displaying the relevant disabled placard and an authorized access pass from SKUSA registration or operations personnel.
  • Anyone caught allowing another person to use their handicap vehicle or pass will lose the privilege at this and future events.
  • There will be a limited number of designated handicapped parking spots. Persons who have their handicap placard and matching identification are to check in at registration for directions.
See you all in Vegas!
