    This weekend is the second stop of the Superkarts! USA Pro Tour – the 2013 SummerNationals. Over 200 drivers are scheduled compete at Grand Junction Motor Speedway in Colorado, running in four Stock Moto and four TaG categories. The third and fourth rounds of the Pro Tour championship will be contested over the July 20-21 weekend. Friday serves as a full day of practice, giving us an idea of how the events will unfold Saturday and Sunday.

    EKN will once again be providing our popular ‘Trackside Live’ coverage, including audio and live timing. Those unable to attend will be able to listen to EKN’s own Rob Howden as he calls the event from qualifying to final checkered flag. All of the coverage will be available at http://www.eknclassic.com/live . Be sure to follow this thread for updates as the event unfolds and look for the event preview on the website on Friday. Also, follow EKN on Facebook and Twitter for live updates along with Instagram

    I’ve been seeing a bunch of posts on FaceBook about the weather… YIKES!!!


    Rob Howden

    Ken, Ijust landed and it was a wild landing for sure…it was like the guy was flying through tic-tac-toe at Infineon..it was awesome! The clouds are heavy here, the winds are high, and we had a little rain as well. Hopefully this blows through tonight and there’s not tent damage at the track.


    Carlos Calderon

    Tic-Tac-Toe! Haha! How’s the paddock this morning?

    What’s the EKN Live schedule?

    This will be the first ProTour event I will missed. Too bad. Going to miss seeing all the TaG stuff play out and watching the new Aluminos karts take to the track. So I’m going to need lots of updates today! 😉


    Carlos Calderon

    Here’s the SKUSA event schedule.

    We will be testing for the final session today at 3:20pm MDT at http://www.eknclassic.com/live


    Carlos Calderon

    I’ve got an idea: Happy Hour with Howden today! Talk with Kutscher, Motley, Valiante, Giessen, Mike Manning, Weiner/Kuntze, Jens, Moormeister (Rotax engine evolution), Giebler? (Vortex perspective), Seesemann (TaG Master perspective), Chelootz (stuck with Leopard), Stacey Cook (Rotax track?). YES! Do it!!

    Side note: what I just discovered? If you accidentally click a link while you’re in progress of writing a post, then go back, your content will be saved when you go back, unlike with eknclassic. Wooo hooo!


    Carlos Calderon

    Oops, I meant Zimmer, not Weiner. An Andrew nonetheless. :)


    David Cole

    I like the idea, unfortunately, it’s too late to put that together as we are working on a number of things today. And I think when the final session today runs, we’ll see where things stand with the TaG classes.

    What were the Seniors driving? Is the EKN Preview accurate with respect to the engines they ran in Final Practice?


    Carlos Calderon

    From RaceMonitor, it says all of the top-10 were on Leopards. True? Pagano first Rotax in 11th? …sorry, I didn’t get to hear the audio.

    Peterson is the only Rotax in the top-15, rest are leopards. Only two others on Rotax. From what I’ve seen and heard, most brought the Leopard engines. Not aware of drivers switching from Rotax to Leopard on the day.
