The Superkarts! USA SuperNationals 25 is officially underway outside the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Following a full day of practice on Wednesday, the over 570 entries in 10 categories completed the lead up with the final two rounds of testing before competitors went all in for qualifying. The day was full of sunshine and slightly warmer feel then on Wednesday with less of a wind. That was until the sun set behind the Rio building and the lights on the Vegas strip began to shine that temperature continued to drop with the final laps of qualifying contested. The two headline categories in the afternoon group, along with six of the classes were led by international drivers in the timed qualifying sessions, with Pedro Hiltbrand and Evan Giltaire earning the B.R.M Chronographes timepieces in Pro Shifter and X30 Senior.

The first category to hit the track was the KA100 Junior division by Think60.org. The fifth and final lap of the session was the money circuit with nearly every driver in the 67-kart field posting their quick time on the last lap. Steven Miller (CDR / Alonso Kart) was able to edge out Max Garica (MPG / Kart Republic) by four thousandths of a second. Christian Cameron (AKR / Tony Kart) and Max Taylor (RPG / Kosmic) were all within 56 thousandths of Miller’s time. Ernesto Rivera (RPG / Kosmic) rounded out the fast five with SKUSA Pro Tour champion Jesus Vasquez Jr. (Nash / EOS) back in 10th. Read full story on eKartingNews.com
