EKN Exclusive: Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 26 – Preview Series – X30 Senior
Monday, 06 November 2023 11:00

Twenty years ago was the debut of the TaG Senior category during the seventh edition of the SuperNationals. During that span, 19 drivers have won in the 19 different SuperSunday main events, all with unique and memorable stories – representing eight different countries. While this may be the smallest field for the class at the SuperNationals since 2005, one driver will come out of the event as a SuperNationals winner. Just one of the 63 drivers set to do battle has ever claimed a SuperNationals victory in the category, with four others looking for a second career triumph at the largest karting event in the world.

Defending race winner Evan Giltaire is not returning to defend his crown, leaving the pathway for another driver to claim the hardware on SuperSunday. The one former class winner is five-time SKUSA Pro Tour champion Ryan Norberg (Rolison Performance Group / Kosmic). Norberg claimed his only SuperNationals triumph at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in 2021 to further etch his name as one of the most decorated karters in USA history. He was among the drivers in contention last year, coming up short and having his position taken away following tech inspection. While this year’s effort to claim a sixth SKUSA title came up short despite five podium finishes, he was able to claim a third straight USPKS championship. The one thing that has stood out, zero victories in 2023. Read full story on eKartingNew.com
 
EKN Exclusive: Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 26 – Preview Series – KA100 Senior
Friday, 03 November 2023 13:56

In the United States, 100cc karting has been the backbone of 2-Cycle racing for decades. The introduction of the IAME KA100 engine platform provided a surge that has helped boost numbers at the local, regional, and national level. The KA100 Senior category sold out in 2021 but has backed down to welcoming 76 drivers competing at SuperNationals 26. Among them are two former winners of the class, however, defending race winner Tomass Stolcermanis from Latvia is not returning.

The winners before Stolcermanis were Pauly Massimino and Brandon Lemke, both vying to become repeat winners in the KA100 Senior division. Massimino (Brandon Jarsocrak Racing / Kosmic) has three starts in the class, winning back in 2019 in a wild ending. He finished sixth and seventh in his other two starts, racing only X30 Senior last year and ran only selected events in the class throughout the 2023 season. Lemke (Franklin Motorsports / Merlin) – a former SKUSA Pro Tour champion and USPKS title winner – has multiple starts at the SuperNationals, dating back to 2012. He contested KA100 Senior in Vegas twice, earning the provisional victory in 2019 after an amazing drive before it was taken away for a pushback bumper penalty while securing the victory at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in 2021. Lemke had an up and down 2023 season in USPKS competition, finishing the season ninth in the standings. Read full story on eKartingNews.com
 
EKN Exclusive: Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 26 – Preview Series – X30 Junior
Thursday, 02 November 2023 14:03

14 races…14 different winners. TaG competition for the Junior level began back in 2008 and has been among the most dramatic categories each year. The list of former winners over the last 14 SuperNationals includes names that have continued up the motorsports ranks – including three current Formula One drivers – George Russell (2011), Lance Stroll (2012) and Logan Sargeant (2014).

The defending race winner Ernesto Rivera has been on fire since his triumph last year, going on to win multiple races along with the SKUSA Pro Tour title and other championships on the season. The driver from Mexico has elected to move up to the Senior ranks, and thus opening the door for a 15th different winner to join the prestigious list.

In fact, only one of the top-10 drivers from last year’s main event are returning for SuperNationals 26. 2021 SuperNationals Mini Swift winner Enzo Vidmontiene (MottazSport / Kart Republic) put in a great rookie performance a year ago to finish ninth. While he did not contest the category on the SKUSA Pro Tour, he finished third in the USPKS final standings for 2023. Read full story on eKartingNews.com
 
EKN Exclusive: Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 26 – Preview Series – KA100 Junior
Wednesday, 01 November 2023 16:55

Introduced to the SKUSA SuperNationals in 2018, the KA100 Junior division has set a new record for the event. Single-speed Junior racing began at the SuperNationals with JICA in 2005, won by Connor De Phillippi who is tied for the most wins at the event with four. Junior racing took off in 2008 when TaG Junior began. Since then, only twice did the class reach or surpass the 80-driver mark. For 2023, KA100 Junior will welcome a record setting 85 drivers competing for a chance to become the next SuperSunday winner in the history books.

Already in that list is last year’s winner Steven Miller in a wild SuperSunday main event. Miller crossed the line second but ruled the victor following penalties, thus unable to enjoy the podium ceremony at the top step. The Florida driver comes in as the SKUSA Pro Tour champion thanks to two victories at the WinterNationals and finishing third in USPKS championship standings. He spent most of the season with Chad Dokken Racing / Kart Republic before the recent move to Nash Motorsportz / EOS. Miller comes in with momentum, finishing on the podium at the ROK Cup Superfinal and winning at ROK Vegas. Read full story on eKartingNews.com
 
EKN Exclusive: Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 26 – Preview Series – KA100 Master
Tuesday, 31 October 2023 16:34

The KA100 Master class was introduced at the SuperNationals last year, reaching a sellout field following a strong push by EKN’s own Rob Howden. Now, the category is the only single-speed class for the elder drivers in the paddock after SKUSA dropped the longtime popular X30 Master division that lacked numbers during the registration process. That has brought together 45 drivers – some moving over from X30, some returning from last year’s class debut, and new names entering to become the second winner at the SuperNationals.

Martin Stone (Racing Edge Motorsports / Kosmic) wants to keep it one name in the history books under KA100 Master after SuperSunday. The defending inaugural race winner returns for a chance at a second SuperNationals victory, coming off a win at the ROK Vegas event in ROK Masters and runner-up result in VLR Masters. The top-three from last year’s podium returns with runner-up Renato Jader David (Orsolon Racing / Tony Kart) and Laurentiu Mardan (Tecno Kart USA) seeking a win. RJD is a former winner in the X30 Master class back in 2016, placing runner-up in that class last year to cap off a four-podium streak. Mardan was third a year ago, giving him a second SuperNationals podium result in his last four starts. Read full story on eKartingNews.com
