The annual SKUSA! SuperNationals in Las Vegas will not take place this year, due to the on-going ramifications of COVID-19. However, that isn’t stopping the organisation from trying to get an alternative large scale event up and running in a different location…
Superkarts USA confirmed the news on its website with a video from the company’s boss, Tom Kutscher – see below.
The 24th running of the event was to have taken place on November 18-22.
“Regrettably, the rumors are true. The 24th edition of the SKUSA SuperNationals will NOT be occurring in Las Vegas due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and Nevada state issued directives that forbid any gatherings (public or private) of more than 50 people.
“After exhausting every resource to try and find a legal way to run the event, the difficult decision was made to call off hosting the race in Nevada. In light of what occurred in New Orleans, SKUSA’s own Tom Kutscher sat down to put all his cards on the table in this very honest, candid, and transparent conversation.
“As the video eludes to, SKUSA is actively exploring the feasibility of promoting a large scale race in a different state with less restrictions. Thus far, those talks look very promising. *IF* the circumstances indeed permit this alternate race to occur, the event dates would be exactly the same as they would have been for Las Vegas.”
