Now just days away from its biggest event, Superkarts! USA is ready to announce the current prize package for this year’s SKUSA SuperNationals. The 15th edition of the event, set to take place at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on November 16-20, will feature one of the highest event purses in its history. Filled with cash, contingencies, inclusion into the Circle of Champions program, and numerous prizes, this year’s total prize package value has surpassed $120,000 – nearly doubling the amount that was awarded one year ago.

The total prize money being awarded, including contingency money available, is a remarkable $44,200. The three ‘Pro’ classes on the schedule – S1, KZ2, and TaG Senior – will see the top-five awarded cold hard cash. The international KZ2 category will once again vie for a $20,000 purse, with an incredible $10,000 going to the victor. Both S1 and TaG Senior will be gunning for $2,000 to each winner, as the rest of the top-five will split up the balance of the $5,000 class purse. Earlier in the year, Honda Performance Development (HPD) confirmed that they would hand out a total of $675 to the top-three finishers in each Stock Moto category (S1, S2, S4, and S5), totaling $2,700. Russell Karting Specialties has set up an event contingency for the top-three finishers powered by IAME engines in KZ2, KF2, TaG Senior and TaG Master. The international categories have $1,750 each up for grabs, while a whopping $4,000 is available in the TaG divisions – including $2,500 to any driver winning TaG Senior or TaG Master utilizing an IAME powerplant.

In addition to the purse and contingency cash for the event, a further $12,000 is waiting for the champions of the SKUSA Pro Tour. Drivers will take their best four results from the five-race schedule, as one drop is allowed. Beginning the season with the two-race SpringNationals in Tucson, Arizona and then the double-event SummerNationals in Grand Junction, Colorado, the SuperNationals will cap off the 2011 series and crown this year’s champions in S1 and TaG Senior, who will each earn $3,000. Second and third in the standings will be awarded $2,000 and $1,000, respectively. For all champions in the eight categories that make up the series, their efforts on the season will earn them the privilege of entering the SKUSA ‘Circle of Champions’ program. All will receive complimentary entry packages for the 2012 Pro Tour – including free entries, race tires, and race fuel and oil – valued at $2,800 each. They will also be given the honor of running the national #1 plate in 2012. The second and third place drivers in the points will run the #2 and #3 plates next year as well, should they remain in the class. HPD also supported the Pro Tour standings for 2011 with $900 total to be awarded to the top-three in each of the four Stock Moto categories, totaling $3,600 in cash – and bringing the overall Pro Tour purse for 2011 to $38,000.
