    The 2013 Superkarts! USA SuperNationals is shaping up to be the biggest event in its 17 year history. At close to 600 entries heading to the Rio All-Suites Hotel and Casino, history will be made when the 11 categories hit the track Wednesday for practice. Over $100,000 in cash and prizes are set to be awarded following the action on SuperSunday, with a $15,000 cash purse handed out in KZ2, TaG Senior and S1 Pro Stock Moto. Not only is the prestige of winning in Las Vegas on the line, but the SKUSA #1 plates for the Pro Tour championships in each of the eight classes.

    EKN Trackside Live coverage is beginning with the Preview Program, looking at each category with a full pre-entry list. Once karts hit the track Wednesday, Trackside Live begins. Update here along with Facebook and Twitter will be made, along with photos on the EKN Instagram feed. Daily reports and Paddock Insider will also be provided, with EKN Live beginning Friday with qualifying and running through the action at SuperSunday

    Any chance of a on track video feed from SN?

    Doubtful   $$$$

    The excitement level continues to build here in Las Vegas, as all the teams have moved in and kart prep is wrapping up.  We’re on-track with the first rounds of practice in the morning and everyone is anxious to get things rolling.

    In regards to coverage, we’ll be providing straight audio this year, but Tom Kutscher and I spoke today and EKN will be producing a live video broadcast in 2014 to add that component to the event.  The lack of video obviously doesn’t effect attendance, as SKUSA will top 600 drivers to set a new record.  And that’s 600 drivers, not 600 ‘entries’.  It’s crazy.

    We’ll work diligently over the off-season to find the commercial sponsorship to make sure that the live video is a straight expense.  It will be our first foray into video, and we’re looking forward to it.

    Has the track layout been announced? I’m assuming it’s the same as last year.

    It’s similar to last year with some updates, including more tech-pro barriers replacing the jersey barriers.

    Yes it is. He’s been racing SKUSA Mexico series as well as DD2 in Canada. He’s thrilled to be here if you check out his Twitter feed.

    How’s the weather? Forecasts show from 30-60% chance of rain each day, but how is it in reality there? I was planning on heading up there for Fri-Sun.

    Has anyone ever done a study as to the economic impact that the SuperNats has on Las Vegas? That’s a lot of hotels, rent, gas, food, taxes, entertainment, shopping etc. This event must generate a significant amount of revenue for the city and state.
