EKN Exclusive: Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 23 – Preview Series – X30 Junior
Tuesday, 12 November 2019 10:29

The 2008 SuperNationals brought the event back to the RIO for the first time since 2003. It also welcomed the return of multiple Junior classes to the event, after S5 Junior Stock Honda was the only Junior category offered in 2007. In fact, in 2006, the SuperNats’ class line-up was adult classes only, offering no options for drivers under the age of 15. The introduction of TaG Junior attracted 48 drivers and since then, the category has been among the largest classes at the SuperNationals. The event has also been part of the racing resume for some very famous drivers, including current Formula One pilots George Russell (2011) and Lance Stroll (2012). 2015 Junior world karting champion Logan Sargeant – the only American to win that title – won at the SuperNationals in this category in 2014 and raced this season in the FIA Formula 3 Championship. In fact, all 11 of the previous winners have moved on to race in cars, including last year’s victor Jeremy Fairbairn. This opens the door for a new name to be etched in the record books as the X30 Junior winner. Read full story on eKartingNews.com
 
EKN Exclusive: Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 23 – Preview Series – KA100 Junior

The KA100 Junior category made its debut at the SKUSA SuperNationals last year, and its growth across North America continued throughout the 2019 season. A total of 30 drivers took part on the SKUSA Pro Tour, with many more competing in regional and club level programs utilizing the IAME engine – which was originally manufactured for the Australian market. This year’s class is sold out, far eclipsing the total of 35 from a year ago.

Ironically, the inaugural winner at the SuperNationals for KA100 Junior came from Australia. James Wharton made the long trek to beat out the competition for the 2018 victory in the category. Wharton (Parolin) has been competing in Europe this season, and unfortunately recorded a DNF at the FIA Karting World Championship following a top-10 finish in the European Championship.

EKN Exclusive: Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 23 – Preview Series – Mini Swift

It was nine years ago that a young Patricio O’Ward crossed the finish line to claim the first-ever TaG Cadet victory at the SKUSA SuperNationals, held that year outside the Rio as it is again in 2019. Fast forward to today, and the two-time SuperNats winner has become the face of the Arrow McLaren SP team on the 2020 NTT IndyCar Series. In 2011, Florida native Logan Sargeant drove to his first of two SuperNationals victories, and then later became the first USA driver to win the Junior world karting championship in 2015. All the previous nine winners have propelled their careers in karting into the many levels of motorsports, spring-boarding off victory at the SuperNationals. This year’s Mini Swift field is no different, with a herd of young drivers hungry and eager to climb the ranks in racing. Read full story on eKartingNews.com
 
EKN Exclusive: Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 23 – Preview Series – Micro Swift

A pre-entry total of 45 drivers have set a new record in the Micro Swift division at the SKUSA SuperNationals. The class was added to the SKUSA Pro Tour and SuperNationals back in 2016, and this grid will be the largest ever. Brazilian Vinicius Tessaro was the inaugural winner while Great Britain’s Vinnie Phillips earned the victory in 2017. Last year, American Ben Maier kept the title in the USA to make it three different countries represented by the winners over the first three years. The 2019 battle could provide a fourth as drivers representing eight different countries fill the field. A defending race winner is not available this time around, as Maier has graduated to the Mini Swift category, thereby opening the door for a fourth different winner in as many years.

Champions Declared for 2019 California ProKart Challenge

The 2019 edition of the California ProKart Challenge came to a close at the end of September, wrapping up an astonishing 15th season for the Superkarts! USA regional program. The season was made up of five events, including six rounds of racing toward the championship program for the 17 categories. The year began in Buttonwillow and was followed up by the first double-round weekend at CalSpeed. Trips to Monterey and Santa Maria began the second half of the season before completing the year at the 11th edition of the Streets of Lancaster Grand Prix. Those able to claim a championship or finish top-three in the standings will be honored at the California ProKart Challenge Awards Banquet on October 26.

For the sixth time in seven years, the Croc Promotion USA/Mad Old Nut Pro Shifter category will recognize Billy Musgrave as the series champion — a win streak carried over from 2018 with six wins last season. Musgrave continued that through much of the season, winning the first five rounds before placing second in his Streets of Lancaster Grand Prix title defense. The five victories in 2019 was good enough to give Musgrave his sixth series championship. Jake French, the 2019 SOLGP victor, ended the year in second, with Cody Hodgson in third.
