The final round of the 2024 Superkarts! USA Winter Series was completed on Sunday at the AMR Homestead-Miami Motorplex presented by MG Tires. The second of two weekends to open up the season for the organization wrapped up its time at the Homestead, Florida facility, welcoming over 200 entries in the nine categories. Weather was perfect until the main events began with a quick rain shower hitting the circuit to dampen things up for the first four race groups before the dry line was formed enough to put back on dry tries. The action on the day helped to decide this year’s champions in a best three of four format with most coming down to the final laps.

The X30 Senior presented by SpeedLab Racing Engines saw the aggression amp up with drivers knowing this was their final shot at a victory, or to further increase their chances of landing on the championship podium. Steven Miller (AM / Exprit) found speed overnight to claim the top spot in qualifying with a 47.672. He cleared Saturday winner Donovan Bonilla (RPG / Kosmic) by just 28 thousandths. Bonilla however was the quickest driver in the Prefinal, working his way up to the point and taking the victory by over a half second ahead of Miller. The start of the Final however cost Bonilla a chance at the championship as contact sent him around in turn two, dropping him outside the top-20. The scramble allowed for Canadian Thomas Nepveu (Trinity / Kart Republic) along with teammate Brandon Carr (Trinity / Kart Republic) and Round Two winner Alessandro de Tullio (Inter MS / Kart Republic) to run 1-2-3. They locked together and got away from the fight that was for fourth. Nepveu led the majority of the race until de Tullio took over the point on lap 17. He led until Carr grabbed the spot coming to the white flag. A defensive line into the first turn pushed him wide and de Tullio got a run on the inside. Nepveu got a run on both, and pushed Carr ahead just enough to clear de Tullio into the second turn from the outside. As Carr jumped back into the lead, de Tullio and Nepveu fought for position, allowing Round One winner Ryan Norberg (RPG / Kosmic) and Dalton Hanes (Piquet / Sodi Kart) to close in. Carr took the advantage and held on through the final corners to secure his first Senior victory. De Tullio held on for second over Nepveu with Norberg and Hanes trailing at the line. Bonilla worked his way up to 12th, but it was not enough as de Tullio would be crowned champion with Norberg third on the championship podium.

Perfect weather greeted the drivers of the Superkarts! USA Winter Series on Saturday at the AMR Homestead-Miami Motorplex Presented by MG Tires as blue skies and temperatures approaching the high-70s made it an ideal day. It was definitely ideal for the winning drivers in the Pro categories. PSL Karting’s Matheus Morgatto (Birel ART) turned in a masterful performance in Pro Shifter, sweeping all three sessions to win over Rolison Performance Group’s Danny Formal (Kosmic). In Pro X30, RPG’s Donovan Bonilla (Kosmic) got away from the pack early and stretched away for yet another top-level national win, despite being chased down aggressively in the late going by Sodi Racing USA’s Harley Keeble. The Englishman’s impressive pace has set the stage for what could be a big fight for the title on Sunday.

The 2024 Superkarts! USA Winter Series is set to conclude this weekend – February 2-4 – with the finale event of the seventh season. The AMR Homestead-Miami Motorplex presented by MG Tires will host Round Three and Four, welcoming over 200 entries in the nine categories competing in Homestead, Florida.

The 7/10-mile circuit will be revert to the clockwise direction for the second weekend for the 2024 SKUSA Winter Series. Wednesday and Thursday are unofficial practice with Friday hosting five official sessions for testing. Round Three is set for Saturday, including qualifying, Prefinal and Final. Round Four is a repeat format on Sunday. Points will then be combined for a best three of four championship format to decide the 2024 SKUSA Winter Series champions.

Two drivers stood out in the Pro X30 presented by SpeedLab Racing Engines as Ryan Norberg (RPG / Kosmic) eliminated his winless streak dating back to 2022, while Alessandro de Tullio (Inter MS / Kart Republic) showed he is a Homestead master in the wet. It is de Tullio leading the championship based on his runner-up performance to Norberg on Saturday, leading in the points standings by 60 over the five-time SKUSA Pro Tour champion. Jakub Kolar (Vice / Kart Republic) and Thomas Nepveu (Trinity / Kart Republic) both had a podium finish in the opening weekend but will need more this time around, trailing by 105 and 135 entering the weekend. SuperNationals 26 winner Donovan Bonilla (RPG / Kosmic), Harley Keeble (Piquet / Sodi Kart), Brandon Carr (Trinity / Kart Republic), and Diego Ramos (PSL / Birel ART) are among the top contenders for podium and wins.

After a thrilling and competitive start to the 2024 season on Saturday, the Superkarts! USA Winter Series returned to AMR Homestead-Miami Motorplex presented by MG Tires on Sunday but this time in much different weather conditions. The rain that had been forecast hit the facility hard for the main events, giving those with wet weather prowess an upper hand. Coming off his Pro Shifter victory on Saturday, Rolison Performance Group’s Danny Formal extended his SKUSA event win-streak to three with a dominant triumph on a rain-soaked track. It’s been a little longer since Alessandro de Tullio has been on top of the box in a SKUSA event, but the Inter MS driver dominated the action in what was an action-packed X30 Senior final.

With pouring rain and standing water all over the track, SKUSA officials moved to set the main events by time as opposed laps. The early mains were set at 17 minutes plus a lap, and after a red flag in Micro Swift, that was decreased to 10 minutes plus a lap for the four three mains.

The Superkarts! USA Winter Series kicked off the 2024 racing season on Saturday at the AMR Homestead-Miami Motorplex Presented by MG Tires with over 291 entries taking to the 0.7-mile, 12-turn in warm and windy conditions. With the mercury rising to the mid-80s in the high heat of the day and light showers making things interesting in between a few main events, Rolison Performance Group came away with a sweep of the headline Pro classes thanks to veteran performances by superstars Ryan Norberg and Danny Formal.

Heated early race action in the SpeedLab Racing Engines X30 Senior main event opened things up for a three-driver breakaway as top qualifier Ryan Norberg (Rolison Performance Group / Kosmic) led Austin Garrison (Speed Concepts Racing / Redspeed) and Alessandro de Tullio (Inter MS / Kart Republic) through the first half of the race. With Norberg beginning to stretch away from the duo as the race closed on the halfway point, de Tullio realized the situation and moved by Garrison in turn four to take up the chase. While he was able to build a little cushion on Garrison, de Tullio was just not able to reel in the five-time SKUSA Pro Tour champion. Norberg would cruise to a 1.164-second win. The fastest driver at the halfway point was top qualifier Jakob Kolar (Vice Racing / Kart Republic), who passed Canadian Thomas Nepveu (Trinity Karting Group / Kart Republic) for fourth as he put his head down to push for a podium finish.
