The New SKE Chassis Finally Available To Customers.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Last year SKE Chassis enjoyed their tenth year in business. To celebrate the guys in the R&D department developed a brand new front end design to the already popular “Double Barrel” chassis and an all new attachable/detachable “Bite Bar” for the rear of the Chassis.
No longer do customers have to take the entire spindle and kingpin assembly apart to change caster pills.” The new front end allows for quicker adjustments at the track”, explained SKE CEO Kyle Beattie. Caster adjustments can now be changed by simply loosening bolts on the new integrated axle receiver assembly. SKE is now the only Outlaw Sprint Kart manufacturer on the market utilizing front axles.
“It’s more user friendly,” said SKE Factory driver Adam Welch. “It gives you more options as far as caster setting, if you tear something up it’s easier to fix, you can get to where you want to be faster.”
In addition to the new front end, all 2014 chassis’ comes with and attachable bite bar that easily bolts to the left rear chassis rail. “The Bite Bar is a tuning tool, said Beattie, it allows you to add left rear drive to the kart without using seat struts.”
“It definitely lets the chassis deliver more forward drive, said Welch when asked about the feel of the Bite Bar. “It stiffens the left rear and keeps it from axle wrapping the chassis up. On a wet track you can get that forward traction when other guys can’t”
SKE has made innovative strides in the last two years with new designs to their chassis’ like their “Double Barrell” with two right side chassis rails, on board wing adjusters and the two latest additions of the new 2014 front end design and the bite bar.
Over the years SKE Chassis has won prestigious events like the Knoxville Nationals four times, three 500cc Open wins and once in the 125cc class, The Wild West Shootout, the Tulsa Shootout and the Outlaw Kart Invitational.

SKE Chassis Sweeps the Knoxville Nationals Wins In Both Heats, Saturday Preliminary and Main Event SKE Chassis PR.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELASE: It’s a week for all of the staff and owners to be proud, SKE Chassis began in 2003 in an effort to bring Mini Outlaw Kart racing to the East coast and supply those racers with a quality racing chassis. In just six short years SKE Chassis went from building it’s first ever chassis to winning the biggest event in Outlaw Kart racing, the Outlaw Dirt Kart Nationals in Knoxville, Iowa in 2009, 2011 and for the third time again this weekend.
Considered the “Knoxville Nationals” of Mini Outlaw Kart racing the Nationals hosts hundreds of drivers from all corners of the United States competing for upwards of two-thousand dollars in prize money. SKE factory drivers Kyle Beattie, Nick DeMoss, Nick Tucker, Wes DeMoss and Adam Welch were the only five SKE chassis’ amongst a sea of other chassis brands competing this weekend.
Not only did SKE Chassis step up to the plate, they knocked it out of the park with a clean sweep of the entire weekend. Nick DeMoss won his qualifying race and backed it up with a preliminary main event win the first night, Nick Tucker also won his qualifying race. The Dash race takes the six fastest drivers from qualifying, when the dash went green, four out of the top six were SKE Chassis’. The main event saw Adam Welch taking the lead from Tommy Brown on the outside of the first lap to lead wire to wire to give SKE Chassis their biggest win as a company.
“I have to thank Kyle Beattie (the boss) for the opportunity to be out here, said Welch. I have to thank Mike Sveda, John Davis and the rest of the guys back in the shop, they built a brand new kart to come out here. I have to thank Nick DeMoss for the set-up help at his home track...thank you everyone, we’ve had a good ol’ time out West here!”
“We were taking home the win,” an enthusiastic Welch said in victory lane. ‘We went there to win, we came home with the win. This one means quite a bit, we’ve had a rough year so to come out swinging means a lot, this is obviously the biggest win in my dirt career, now we just need to get that East Coast Nationals win next month.”
The race Welch is referring to is “Fair Week” in North Carolina consisting of four races at three different tracks over a six day period with a chance for a driver to take home ten-thousand dollars if they can win each race at Bear Creek Speedway, Millbridge Speedway and the Iredell County Fair Speedway in September.
