The change in direction underscores a recognition in logistics and customer logistics, with so many teams and events based on the east coast. “We’re always studying the market,” explained SKUSA principal Tom Kutscher. “It’s no secret many of our teams are based on the east coast and much of the national karting calendar is centered on that side of the country. We’re always mindful of teams having to haul their stuff from one side of the country to the other and have worked hard to create a schedule that’s complimentary.”
Venues are still being finalized but SKUSA have confirmed mainstays on the national calendar will return, including Homestead, and New Castle Motorsport Park. And of course, the season will conclude with the 27th SKUSA SuperNationals already confirmed to be at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for 2024.
Tom Kutscher added “Our Winter Series harkens back to SKUSA’s early days in Florida. Our numbers continue to increase year over year for that championship and many other series’ races coincide with the location. Being crowned champion of the SKUSA Winter Series has continued to be a meaningful accomplishment on any racer’s resume and with the added weekend, we expect the prestige to only grow.”
Finalized venues will be confirmed in the coming weeks, with SKUSA evaluating locations that not only race well, but as importantly — can house the pits and infrastructure necessary to hold a national caliber event.
