The 24th SKUSA SuperNationals will be held December 1-5, 2021 at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas. Pre-entry is open and the closing date for entries is 21 November.
SKUSA is pleased to confirm, despite a forced hiatus in 2020, the event will be nothing short of what it was in years past. The class and capacity breakdown is as follows:
Micro Swift: 44 Entries
Mini Swift: 44 Entries
KA100 Junior: 44 Entries
KA100 Senior: 88 Entries
X30 Junior: 88 Entries
X30 Senior: 88 Entries
X30 Master: 44 Entries
KZ: 44 Entries
Master Shifter: 44 Entries
Pro Shifter (SSE Only): 44 Entries
One key item of note that SKUSA is keen on addressing are the class capacities. In years past, SKUSA were able to expand full classes for late entries in an effort to accommodate everyone wishing to participate. In 2021, once race classes are full there will be no more capacity allowances. With the forced date change to December, SKUSA is required to share the RIO hotel with other events using the facility. That will mean a hard cap on the number of racers the series can feasibly fit in the space allocated for pit spots. Racers are encouraged to get their entry in early if they wish to guarantee their spot.
One other big question SKUSA is excited to confirm are the purses.
“We’re still doing the customary $10,000 for the winner of our flagship classes and even a $3,000 pole position award to our X30 and Pro 175 SSE class pole setters,” remarked SKUSA’s Tom Kutscher. “We’ve always believed in giving back to our racers and will always continue to do so. Especially for a race as big as the SuperNationals.”
The purse for SuperNationals 24 amounts to a staggering $40,000 USD with the payout breakdown as follows:
Pro Shifter and X30 Senior Purse for SuperNationals 24
Pole Position: $3,000 USD
1st Place: $10,000 USD
2nd Place: $5,000 USD
3rd Place: $2,000 USD
