New Castle Welcomes Superkarts! USA
This weekend marks only the second time Superkarts! USA has ventured east of the Mississippi River since beginning the Fikse Wheels Pro Tour in 2010. The New Castle Motorsports Park is hosting its first Superkarts! USA event since its inaugural year in 2004 when the SKUSA ProMoto Tour visited in its farewell season.
It marks a new facility for a number of competitors, with some taking part in the WKA Manufacturers Cup Series event here last weekend, and some arriving early to compete in the Race4Riley charity event on Tuesday that coincides with the Brickyard 400 event happening at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. For the first time, SKUSA allowed practice to take place the Thursday before the event, with the NCMP controlling the on-track activities for about six hours in the late afternoon, early evening. About 190 drivers took part of the 240 competitors on hand this weekend.
