OK, I’m signing up…if only to bet against Michigan so I can piss off Cole. This did make it in, right, Cole? Please tell me they’re up against Appalachian State in the Round of 64!March 18, 2014 at 4:25 pm #24056
I’ve had good success with the Hilliard Inferno (not sure if Blaze or Flame model) and the MaxTorque during my two outings in the LO206 class.February 21, 2014 at 4:03 pm #22453

We are on-track with the Friday afternoon Pre-Qualifying Timed Practice sessions. The order is:
We’re working on some equipment upgrades for the live broadcasts and will likely be doing our usual tea, streaming for the laster sessions.February 15, 2014 at 8:53 am #22059
You know, Justin, it just seems like the FIA keeps adjusting the specs and the designers keep manipulating them to the best of their abilities. The simple fact is that the resultant lines are just flat-out ugly. It doesn’t matter what changes the FIA makes, maximizing aero is the goal, not matter what the form.
And I agree…the new F1 cars really brutal…almost embarrassing. LOLFebruary 10, 2014 at 9:31 am #21506
Just our luck. David was off today on a family getaway and I’m on the West Coast, so I’m three hours behind on firing up the laptop. It’s a conspiracy for sure!!!
We’ll address it for the future, that’s for sure.February 7, 2014 at 9:13 am #21132
The Maranello karts continue to be run with great success in Canada, as the foundation for Trevor Wickens’ Prime Kartsport team. He’s focused on running a small squad, but they do extremely well with the Maranello, including back-to-back Canadian National Championships in DD2 Masters with Stuart Clark.
Clark also won the Eastern Canadian Karting Championship (ECKC) on his Maranello in DD2 Masters, and Brendon Bain and Fred Woodley were second and third in the ECKC behind Ben Cooper.
Results point to it being a strong chassis, and in talking to the Prime guys, they love it.January 31, 2014 at 10:52 am #20747
Our advertising program is not designed around the ‘pay per click’ approach. We use a monthly fee for our program. I have worked aggressively in recent years to develop a wider spectrum of benefits for our advertising partners, and the marketing packages they purchase include many different deliverables to fully leverage what we can offer.
EKN is fortunate to have a list of great marketing partners who have worked with us for countless years. It’s all about value, in my opinion. If we help them be successful, then we’re success in return.January 6, 2014 at 5:25 pm #19098
Thanks to everyone who is supporting Wesley on the fundraiser site. It’s incredible to see. I’m sure than Sandra will give us a new update soon.January 3, 2014 at 4:52 pm #18921
hope everything goes well.
I went to school with a person named Wesley Boswell. He was from Illinois at the time. Would there be any coincidence that this person also have been from Illinois in his youth?
I don’t think so, Kurt. Wesley’s a NorCal native, I think.January 3, 2014 at 2:10 pm #18910
I just got off the phone with Sandra Booher, who is with Wesley along with her son Austin Elliott and Wesley’s family. She’s going to get signed up to the forum so she can post updates, but in the meantime, she contacted us directly.
She let me know that Wesley was involved in an car accident late last night in California, having went off the road, eventually hitting a tree. He has broken ribs and a fractured pelvis. There is some concern regarding internal bleeding, but the doctors are running tests and monitoring him closely.
Sandra told me that Wesley is stable and doing better. He is conscious and coherent, and is speaking with everyone, but he’s a little foggy due to the meds and doesn’t remember much about last night. It is expected that he will be in the hospital for a couple of days. We’ll get additional updates as they become available.
Wesley will be on the sidelines on the mend for some time, so we are now in the process of putting together a fundraising effort to help support his loss of income. We’ll get this information out once it’s finalized.
Sandra also wanted everyone to know that the family is overwhelmed by the outpouring of well wishes. Keep them coming, folks, so Wesley know that we’re by his side through this!December 8, 2013 at 11:02 am #17416
Taylor, send us press release on this event and we’ll get it posted up on the site! Looks like it would be a blast!December 6, 2013 at 9:38 am #17298
Just to add in a little commentary, here is what I believe you can expect for the 2014 SuperNationals:
1. Live Video – EKN will be producing a live streaming video broadcast in cooperation with SKUSA – my goal is to then use that footage to put together a show for one of the cable channels like MAVTV
2. The class numbers will shrink to shorten the days – I highly doubt any classes will be added at this time
3. KZ will return to the line-up thanks to strong domestic participation this year in the absence of some of the factory efforts
4. A increased focus will be put on improving the quality of the racing
5. There will be an expansion in purse money and prizes
It’s all about small improvements each year to make sure the race gets better and better.November 29, 2013 at 6:52 pm #16781
I totally agree, Mike. There is some really nice stuff being built in the US right now. And it’s performing well. I raced a Margay 4.11 this year in Ontario, and it’s a great kart with incredible finish. It turned alot of heads. I think it they had a dealer in the area, it would do very well.
That said, we’re going to start working on some editorial to put the US builders in the spotlight. I’ve spoken with John Martin for iKart on a number of occasions and I’m excited to learn more about his approach to the chassis design and his plans for 2014 and beyond. We’ll be using the ‘off-season’ to roll out lots of cool and interesting editorial like this.November 19, 2013 at 5:43 pm #16051
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.October 28, 2013 at 4:25 pm #14097
We’ve talked about putting together an industry-only restricted forum section to allow interaction between business owners etc. Might be time to pull the trigger on it.September 27, 2013 at 8:58 am #10883
Stay tuned. An official SKUSA release will be coming today.
I’ve spoken with Tom and this is going to be a big deal, and a great opportunity to promote karting in NorCal.September 23, 2013 at 9:40 am #10532
Thanks Chris. The URLs used by the new site are different from the old format. so we didn’t pick up on this. That said, we’ve added the ‘New Topics’ link to the ‘Forums’ drop-down menu in the navigation bar, so reader can click there first, if desired.
Please send me your mailing address and I’ll make sure you get an EKN shirt for helping out with some great feedback. Much appreciated!September 20, 2013 at 1:43 pm #10386
Mike, that’s an awesome question. I’ve been working on the editorial for our new Karting 101 section, which will be designed to answer any question someone may have in regards to the sport. The intro section needs to be exactly what you’re asking….a clean, clear description of the sport. Essentially, it needs to be our calling card.
I really look forward to reading the replies to see how they jive with my thoughts, and maybe I can see some new viewpoints to include in our editorial.
Thanks for posting this question.
