    The Rocky Mountain area has experienced growth in the sport of karting, thanks in part to a strong core of racers, popular facilities, and hosting the SKUSA Pro Tour SummerNationals for the past two season. Superkarts! USA is always looking to improve, while also providing the most exciting and customer-friendly race weekends to provide the true SKUSA experience. The 2013 Rocky Mountain ProKart Challenge is expanding to a seven round program, visiting four fantastic circuits.

    “The 2013 Rocky Mountain ProKart Challenge is a culmination of numerous people coming together towards a common goal, a true regional series where a racer can test themselves against the best in the area,” commented SKUSA National Operations Director Stan Bryniarski. “The track owners, series competitors and industry members have all voiced their opinions and concerns, and now we are moving forward. We had more interest in this year’s series than ever, and we will be working throughout the year to broaden our relationship with all groups in the area for the future. If the numbers continue to grow and the series support continues to increase, we could see more races and venues added for 2014. We welcome all racers to come out and see what the program has to offer. The area is a hotbed for karting, thanks to supportive facilities and a thriving regional program. Now with this year’s plan in place, we feel the Rocky Mountain ProKart Challenge can take karting to the next level.”

    The 2013 program for the Rocky Mountain ProKart Challenge – in addition to all nine SKUSA regional classes – will include the seven categories of the United States Rotax Max Challenge. Drivers competing in the Rotax classes can secure ‘punches’ that count toward participation in the United States Rotax Grand Nationals, held the first week of August in North Carolina. Those racing in the SKUSA divisions will qualify for SuperNationals Priority Registration benefits, along with class champions earning the Guaranteed SuperSunday Grid Positions for the Las Vegas event (class must average five racers for the year in order to receive SuperSunday ticket).

    For 2013, the championship will be a seven-round program, counting the best six races toward the point standings. The first stop will visit the first-class Miller Motorsports Park facility – site of the 2012 SKUSA SummerNationals – on May 3-5 for the opening two rounds. Stop number two will take racers back to the IMI Motorsports Complex – a familiar stop for regional racing in the Rocky Mountain states – on May 24-25 for one round of racing. The third facility on the 2013 schedule is the Grand Junction Motor Speedway. The western Colorado course will host rounds four and five on July 5-7, serving as a warm-up event for the 2013 SKUSA Pro Tour SummerNationals, scheduled two weeks later. The final two rounds send the series to The Track at Centennial – site of the 2012 Pan American Challenge event – on August 16-18. A series banquet is schedule for the night of the final day of competition in Englewood, Colorado, with details forthcoming.

    That is awesome news for all Regional and up-coming aspiring Regional racers. This is something the SKUSA Mountain Region has needed for a very long time. Congrats to all who came together to make this happen.

    I wish everyone the best of luck, best safety, most fun, and very competitive racing this year. Congtats Colorado!

    Thanks to all who were/are involved in making this happen.



    This is fantastic! Thank you for all your efforts.

    I’m taking this announcement to be the outcome of the efforts documented on this thread about a Colorado State Series. On that thread is a list of 70 interested racers. Are we all still committed and interested?

    Just looking over the opportunities showing on The Colorado Karter Calendar, we have lots of racing available in Colorado this season.

    There are 14 race days at Front Range Tracks of SBR, TTAC, and IMI by SKUSA, RtR, and PPKRC.
    There are 4 race days on the Western Slope Tracks of MSP, and GJMS by SKUSA.
    There are 8 race days at SBR, Action Karting, IMI, and GJMS by CJKC.

    My post today is a polished press release that was sent out across the Karting community websites.
    What I would like to add is this schedule was an example of what CAN happen when you work together.
    We all agreed at the beginning that there is no HERO but a group of interested people (series, Tracks, racers) working together to reach a common goal.
    Every person involved in this made sacrifices.
    If you want to say Thank You, do it by supporting the series and tracks involved.
    Patronize the tracks with your parts, testing, fuel, oil and tire dollars. If this type of cooperation is to survive, it will take you the racer to be loyal to the series and tracks that are supporting you.
    As you can tell, we listen to what racers have to say. We have done our job the best we could for 2013, If we are to succeed and expand in 2014 it is now up to you!

    Hope to see everyone at the track come May!

    I like seeing a true regional Schedule, thanks to all those that helped make this happen. Looks like I picked a good time to get into karting in CO. SKUSA is quickly becoming the top sanctioning body(just sent my membership in today) in my book. With a great variety of races and race classes. I cannot wait for the season to get started.

    Thank you! We all appreciate your hardwork and effort. This has been a longtime coming and now it is up to all of us to make it a success and bring the mtn region back to the old CSC days. :wave

    David Watkins

    This is fantastic news! Thanks to all that contributed!

    Can’t wait to get back to the States and a state/regional series.

    Kirk Deason

    Golf clap. Roshak Racing will support this awesome series. Let’s get back to the huge numbers which made Colorado Karting such a success in the past.

    Any S5’s out there waiting in the wings? Any CJKC racers want to bang gears this year? We started our season last weekend with testing and motor break-ins. We’ll be at GJMS this weekend for testing and are leaving Wednesday for the Lone Star GP street Race, pitting with the always formidable and fast WOGRIN RACING juggernaut. Colorado, w00t!!

    Let me close with a sincere thank you to everyone involved, teams, individuals, and track owners. Great job, everyone.

    Kudos to all those who made this happen! :clap:

    We have 2 S5 drivers for 2013 National contender Austin Versteeg will be constesting the S5 division for CRG USA along with our secret weapon Lindsey Brewer who was smoking fast her first time out in a shifter.

    Jon Romenesko

    Wow, that is phenomenal! Genuine thank you to everyone involved for making this happen. Thank you thank you! :clap:
