Karting organization to celebrate 25 years of existence by honoring greats.
This is certainly been a milestone year for Superkarts! USA and its community of drivers, families and teams. The karting organization enjoyed incredibly strong participation in its California ProKart Challenge in 2016 and record-setting numbers on its growing national championship SKUSA Pro Tour. The upcoming 20th running of the SuperNationals event will also mark a highpoint of the 2016 season, as it prompts a timely look at the incredible history of the company. The organization has been promoting karting events under the SKUSA banner for over 20 years, and the time has come to begin acknowledging the individuals who have played significant roles in developing and growing Superkarts! USA during that time. As a result, Superkarts! USA President Tom Kutscher would like to officially announce the formation of a new SKUSA Hall of Fame, which will honor those individuals who have contributed to the success of this thriving organization.
“It’s hard to put into words how important Superkarts! USA is to me, not only because it’s my company and my livelihood, but in how it’s affected my life for the last 20 years,” admitted Kutscher, who raced with SKUSA in the late 1990s and early 2000s before becoming a kart shop and team owner. “SKUSA racing played a huge role in my life during my mid-30s, when I found the excitement of karting and fell in love with the sport through the thrill of racing the SuperNationals and the ProMoto Tour. It changed everything for me. And when I look back, I’m motivated to thank those who dedicated themselves to the goal of building this organization. I know full well what it takes to run this company, and the passion that is needed to commit to being a promoter, a driver, a team owner and a shop owner. Our goal with the Hall of Fame is to thank those who have put their all into our organization, and to make sure they’ll also have a place in our history.”
The SKUSA Hall of Fame will have unique categories for Drivers, Officials and Industry Members who have made a lasting impact and significant difference in the development and growth of the Superkarts! USA racing over the years. SKUSA will announce the first class of inductees on Tuesday, November 8. The initial Hall of Fame members will be honored during the SuperNationals opening ceremonies on SuperSunday (November 20).
