Attention SuperNationals XXIV Teams and drivers

As we get closer to the biggest kart race of the year, we would like to bring to your attention a few key dates and information which we hope will ease the stress of securing your pit space for the December event.
  • By 10/10/21, SKUSA will post this year’s pit map, the directions, and the additional venue information online as to how to correctly reserve a pit space for SuperNationals XXIV. NOTE: As usual, there is no camping overnight or RV’s allowed in the pits.
  • By 10/17, SKUSA will begin to accept correctly completed pit requests.
    • The time stamp of you sending your pit requests designates the order in which your pit space will be assigned. (All sponsors shall have assignment priority).
    • Questions on how to become a sponsor (or on-site vendor)? Send an email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
    • Incorrect pit requests will be returned to you for correction, and your new time stamp will be assigned when the correct pit request is received.
  • 11/12 will be the FINAL day to commit to an event sponsorship and submit a pit request if the sponsorship is to include a preferred pit space.
  • 11/12 will be the FINAL day for pre-orders for tents. After this date, tents and/or changes to tent orders will be charged at premium pricing and completed on a first come-first served basis – after ALL pre-ordered tents are in place.
  • 11/12 will be the DEADLINE for Source One to have the information needed to assure compliance for larger self-owned tents.
  • 11/18 will be the FINAL day to send correctly completed pit requests.
    • All pit requests received after this date shall be considered a “WALK UP” pit request, and may not be handled until you arrive. Therefore, please do not show up on 11/28-11/29 and expect to be pitted in your space unless and until contacted by SKUSA to do so.

Pit Spot Reservations

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! For all pit requests please email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . We will attempt to acknowledge receipt of your pit request (and answer questions) within 24-72 hours. If you have not received a reply within 72 hours, please send a follow up email to Stan and/or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . If you have any questions about your pit spot, please call Stan at (219)841-1367. 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 section 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 (Type 2A 10BC) with current inspection for every 400 square feet of pit area. Fire extinguishers must always be visible and accessible. Competitors with trailers over 20-ft long shall have a minimum of one 20-lb type ABC fire extinguisher with current inspection 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 non- compliant 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 a complete drawing to the SKUSA office. What your drawing must include is described below, AND WILL BE REJECTED IF IT IS INCOMPLETE. 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.
  • 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 24 – as well as 7 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 2021 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 $1.45 per square foot will be applied to all orders received and paid by 12/8/2021. All orders placed or paid after 12/8 will be charged at the premium rate of $1.50 per square foot.

Tent Permits - Self-Owned Tents

As some of you have already heard, there are some new rules and requirements for SELF-OWNED tents and tent permits. Click HERE for these new rules, and HERE for a sample flame-retardant certificate. Any staking of self-owned tents MUST be done by Source One Events. Contact them to get on the list.

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

Due to SKUSA sharing the facility with another event, SKUSA no longer will have access to the staging lot or area to pre-stage teams prior to parking in your assigned pit. We recommend those of you who are attending the event prior to the SuperNats and plan on leaving your equipment on site in Vegas to consider these two options;
  • For long term parking, arrangements have been made so your equipment can remain on the lot of the event and the gate will be secured until Sunday November 28th.
  • For short term parking (Friday November 27th thru Monday November 29th) ;Just behind the Gold Cost Casino (S/W corner of S Valley View Blvd and W Viking Rd) is a parking lot that has the ability to accommodate oversized vehicles and trailers.
You will be called by the cell phone number you have listed as point of contact on your pit request. Groupings of 10 will be assigned. Look for this on your return pit conformation. Once called please proceed in a safe fashion to the entrance of Rio Dr off of Twain Dr. Do NOT enter the Rio facility from the front as this will be blocked off. 

Pit move in will begin on Sunday November 28th for big rigs and sponsors ONLY (Big Rigs are defined as 40’ trailers or larger), and Monday, the 29th for everyone else. Enter the property from Twain Dr at the North end of Rio Dr. ALL teams must enter from this direction ONLY. 

Full move-in must be complete by Tuesday evening, Nov.30th 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 Dec 1st (without prior approval from SKUSA).

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 garages provided by the Rio. Accommodations have been made for parking of oversized tow vehicles (Transporter tractors) The grid steward will direct you to this area. 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, Dec 7th 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, Dec 8th (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 11/15/21 will be charged a cancelation fee of $50.00. 

See you all in Vegas!
