    Heavy rains hit Dallas Karting Complex as regional program closed out season in special night racing event

    SACHSE, TX (August 24, 2016) – Everything in Texas is done bigger and better. The same can be said for the Texas ProKart Challenge 2016 finale held at the Dallas Karting Complex. The Caddo Mills, Texas facility welcomed the top drivers in the P1 Promotions Superkarts! USA and Texas Barge & Boat Inc. Rotax Max Challenge categories in a special night race event held Thursday, August 18 to Saturday, August 20. Plenty of off-track activities took part during the three days, including a free concert and a dunk tank fundraiser benefitting Karting Community United, which raised $1515 for the charity. Both brought a level of fun to the event, whereas the weather brought on a real challenge for competitors with heavy rains throughout the Friday portion of the event. Dry weather welcomed racers for the final day of action Saturday, putting in the final round to decide this year’s series champions.

    TPKC 07 R4 Austin WilkinsEach day brought different conditions and different winners in the S2 Semi-Pro Stock Moto category presented by Champion Racing, involving the two championship contenders. Jordon Musser, a former SKUSA Pro Tour S4 champion, showed his talents in the wet conditions to sweep Round Seven. Musser was unchallenged throughout Friday’s action, dominating the qualifying and Prefinal before leading all 14 laps of the Final to secure his third victory of the season. Fellow championship contender Austin Wilkins came up from a DNS in qualifying to finish second, about three seconds back of Musser. Nathan Mauel recorded his first podium finish of the year in third ahead of Brady Ross and Lawson Nagel.

    Wilkins had a similar performance on Saturday for the final round of the 2016 championship, securing his fourth triumph of the year. Wilkins secured fast time in qualifying, and won both heat races. Musser challenged him throughout, including early on in the main event. It wasn’t enough as Wilkins drove to a near seven-second advantage. Brady Ross improved to reach the podium Saturday in his series debut. Nagel and Andretta Young completed the top-five. Riley Dickinson swept the event in the S3 Novice Stock Moto, driving to a 22-second advantage in the wet Friday over Randy Burnett and Nathan Ratton while securing the victory by 19 seconds Saturday ahead of Burnett and Mark McGuire. Rod Clinard went uncontested in the Uncle Hal Gottspeed Racing-sponsored S4 Master Stock Moto division both days.

    TPKC 07 R4 Caiden MitchellThe IAME Mini Swift division, presented by Mind Shift Financial was once again the largest class of the weekend with 18 drivers challenging for the win. Round Seven was all Jak Crawford, as the former series champion made his series debut at the finale. Crawford swept the wet sessions with ease, never relinquishing the top spot all day. Crawford was a missile, stretching out to 28-second advantage in just 12 laps. Ayrton Hernandez won the battle for second over point leader Branyon Tiner with Davis Cunningham and Alex Stanfield completing the top-five. Things evened out in the dry conditions with Caiden Mitchell ending the series where he began, at the top of the podium. Crawford opened up as the top qualifier, but was shuffled back in the early laps of Heat #1. Alex Stanfield recorded his first heat win of the series with Mitchell just behind in second. Stanfield was the bouncing ball, dropping down the order in Heat #2 with Mitchell driving away to the win with Crawford advancing to second. In the 12-lap main event, Mitchell fought off Tiner and Crawford for his second victory of the season. Luke Lange drove to fourth with John Burke placing fifth.

    TPKC 07 R4 Maxwell WaithmanMaxwell Waithman jumped back on top of the podium in the Texas Barge sponsored Rotax Junior division, winning both main events at the series finale. Waithman missed the third event of the season after opening up with three straight victories on the year. Maxwell secured his first win of the event by sweeping the action in Round Seven. After qualifying first, Waithman had to fight back to the top position by the end of the heat race before leading all 14 laps of the main event. Cade McKee drove to second with Cash Tiner rounding out the podium. Tyler Orum and Ethan Arndt placed fourth and fifth. Yusuf Moola, making his series debut, challenged Waithman in the final round. Waithman recorded the fast lap in qualifying, only to see Moola earn the win in both heat races. Yusuf controlled the first half of the main event until Waithman controlled the second portion, recording a second victory on the weekend. McKee joined the two on the podium beating out Tiner and Landen Wilkins for the P3 step.

    TPKC 07 R4 Gabby SeldonRotax Senior presented by Dallas Karting Complex was won by two national level stars. Jake French made his class debut in Round Seven, scoring the victory. Four-time race winner Brett Mitchell recorded the fast time in qualifying while South African driver Jordan Sherratt came through for the Prefinal triumph.

Sherratt settled for the second spot with Thomas Beaudoin joining them on the podium in third. Marcellus Dukes and Mitchell completed the top-five. French swapped his Rotax ride for a shifterkart, running uncontested in the S1 Pro Stock Moto class for a second victory on the event. Gabe Bargas, a Round Two winner, stepped up in the dry conditions Saturday, securing fast time in qualifying and winning the opening heat race. Sherratt was able to work around Bargas for the win in Heat #2, en route to a wire-to-wire victory in the main event. The gap was 27 seconds back to Beaudoin with Miguel Mier a third podium finish on the year. Dukes and Moises De La Vara finished fourth and fifth.

Lane Vacala was the only driver to beat Adds on the weekend, just in the Round Seven qualifying session. Adds took over the top spot for the remainder of the event. The advantage was seven seconds in the main event Friday night over Vacala with John Berry third. Saturday was a complete sweep for Adds en route to a nine-second margin of victory with Vacala and Berry duplicating their previous finishes on the podium.

    The Texas ProKart Challenge – presented by 3G Kart Racing/Burger King®/Fernelius Alvarez Attorneys/Dallas Karting Complex – hosted round seven and eight on August 16-18 at the Oklahoma Motorsports Complex. Revered as one of the top circuits in the country, Superkarts! USA and United States Rotax Max Challenge competitors from the southern states took on the challenging 8/10-mile course as the ten-round championship series looks to close out the 2013 season.

    The weekend welcomed perfect racing conditions, with cooler than normal temperatures through the tree days in Norman, Oklahoma. Friday evening provided a great meal, courtesy of Rey Ferreyro and his local Chick-fil-A. All podium finishers received Motul products, with top end rebuild kits for the Stock Moto categories courtesy of Honda Performance Development, and three sets of Mojo tires to three Rotax drivers. In total, over $2,500 in awards and prizes were handed out on the weekend, including free entries and free hotels to the season finale. Of course, the weekend went smooth thanks to the great hospitality provided by the Berryhill family at the OMC facility. On-track, many of the usual suspects were found on top of the podium throughout the weekend, as the championship chases turned another page.

Kinnear led the way in round seven qualifying, as he edged out Boone by just two thousandths of a second, with Miguel Lopez just 44 thousandths off the fast time as well. Through the two 10-lap heat races, Kinnear held the advantage as he won both races, setting up for a main event battle. Boone gave a strong challenge early on in the 16-lap event, but fast laps over the course of the race would provide Kinnear with a 2.8-second advantage. Behind Boone, Lopez would finish third. Overnight, Boone found that extra speed to put himself on the pole position for round eight, with Kinnear and Lopez just a tick slower. Boone led early in heat one, but Kinnear was able to score the race win. They battled once again in heat two, with Kinnear scoring the win again. The final 16-lap event of the weekend was a hard-fought, clean battle between the two. Exchanging the lead numerous times, Boone was able to capitalize at the end and earn his second feature of the season. Kinnear settled for second with Lopez once again in third, setting up for a three driver battle for the championship at the season finale in October.

    Former SKUSA SuperNationals winner Chris Jennings extended his point lead in the SwedeTech S4 Master Stock Moto championship chase, adding his fourth and fifth victories on the season. Saturday was a perfect score for Jennings as he swept the day from qualifying to the main event, while posting fast lap of the race. Championship rival Jordon Musser was second with Milton Rivera in third, making a return to the series after two runner-up finishes at the season opener. Jennings began round eight on top, securing the pole position in qualifying but was shuffled back in the heat race with Musser pushing past for the race win. Jennings came back in heat two for the win, and continued on to score the victory in the main event. Musser once again was second with Jorge Galvan third.

The wins were not easy, as the top four drivers finished within six tenths of a second in the final heat, including Jacob Loomis, Adds and Woodyard. Numerous lead changes in the 12-lap race led to Woodyard taking over the top spot with two laps remaining. From there, he held off Adds for his third victory of the season.

  • SKUSA SuperNationals Pre-Entry Deadline Is This Friday Aug. 31st!

    SKUSA Super Nationals logoAt the beginning of the 2012 racing season, Superkarts! USA officials took a stand in supporting their dedicated customers. The organization elected to provide their racers with the lucrative opportunity of being guaranteed a spot in the annual SKUSA SuperNationals in Las Vegas through their new ‘Priority Pre-Entry Program’. Wait lists for the race have grown in length over the last couple of years, and the chance to reserve an entry in the country’s biggest event has become invaluable. Any competitor who raced in this year’s SKUSA Pro Tour SpringNationals, pre-entered for the SummerNationals by July 1, or drove in ANY ProKart Challenge regional event by the June 30-July 1 weekend was provided with a reserved spot on the entry list until August 31. They simply had to register by the end of August. This window of opportunity will close on Friday, August 31 at MIDNIGHT. After that time, all drivers who have not yet entered will then lose their reserved spot – and for most, that means moving to the end of the waiting list for their class if they wish to race in Las Vegas. Simply put, the time is NOW to take advantage of your reserved entry opportunity.
