The 2012 SuperKarts! USA SuperNationals 16 are finally underway at the RIO Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. Two full days of practice are complete, and after a great session for the morning groups, the afternoon group hit the track for their round of qualifying and first heat race.
In TaG Cadet, Canadian Antonio Serravalle (Pserra Racing/TonyKart) stormed to the pole-position in timed qualifying. Serravalle topped the charts in the second group of TaG Cadets to hit the track, and earn the all important inside row one starting position for all three of his heat races. With the top four divided by just over a tenth of a second, the lead group is very tight, as Hunter Kelly was second ahead of David Malukus (Birel), Zach Holden and Anthony Gangi Jr. (TonyKart).
