TEMECULA, CA (June 10, 2011) – Superkarts! USA is pleased to announce that they will partner with Mothers® Polishes-Waxes-Cleaners for the upcoming stop on the national karting schedule. Mothers® has signed on to become the title sponsor of the second event of the 2011 Superkarts! USA Pro Tour – now labeled as the Mothers® SummerNationals. The event will be held at the Grand Junction Motor Speedway in Grand Junction, Colorado on the July 15-17 weekend, with an expected 200 drivers competing in the shifterkart and TaG divisions. Mothers® will be out in force, supporting the racers with prize packages for each and every podium finisher.

“Mothers has been a valued supporter of SKUSA ever since I’ve been at the helm, and we couldn’t be happier to continue this strong relationship,” stated Tom Kutscher, Superkarts! USA president. “Their products are superior and the relationship they have with motorsports, especially the grassroots level, is phenomenal. We are extremely pleased to have a company like Mothers as part of the SummerNationals this year. There is no doubt this event will be one step above what we did in Tucson for the SpringNationals, and that’s saying something. I can’t wait.”

Formed in the early 1970’s, Mothers® Polishes-Waxes-Cleaners began its life with just one product – a little tin of Mag & Aluminum Polish for cars. From there, word of the quality wheel polish with the unusual name spread quickly, and the company developed a loyal following of car enthusiasts who wanted to keep that ‘like-new’ shine on their mag wheels and aluminum parts. After years of growth and development, the Mothers® line has grown to more than 40 different car care products.

“The whole family here at Mothers® is very honored to be the title sponsor for the upcoming SKUSA SummerNationals,” commented Mothers® executive Jim Holloway. “The many racers who have used our products and are loyal to our brand understand our love of motorsports. We’ve been a supporter of Superkarts! USA for a number of years now, and we’re happy to take that to the next level. Mothers® will be on hand to provide product prizes to all of the winners over the weekend. It should be an exciting event for sure.”

The Mothers® SummerNationals is expected to be one of the largest events of the summer karting season, with an estimated 200 drivers expected to compete in Grand Junction. The fields in the eight categories are set to have stacked driver rosters, with racers from all over the country and North America traveling to the Rocky Mountain state.
