Colorful SuperPro fan favorite eyes return to ProMoto Tour.

Dublin, OH -- Two years after SuperPro standout, Trevor McAlister was banned from SKUSA competition, the controversial racer is now looking to make a return to the SKUSA ProMoto Tour. The Dallas, TX native, known by racers in the paddock as T-Mac, has spent the last two years focusing his attention on his engine prep service, T-Mac Power, but figures now is the time to make his return to the forefront of shifterkart competition.

"I feel like I have been going to waste," said McAlister. "I watched all last year and knew I could run up front. Standing on the sidelines just downright sucks and I am tired of it."

Though not officially confirming a return to the full schedule, McAlister will be at the first round of the SKUSA ProMoto Tour Western Championship at Infinion Raceway.

"I plan on racing wherever the top racers are," said McAlister. "If the ProMoto Tour is anything like I suspect it will be, then that is where I want to be. I want to show up and do the best I can, but you don't know how good you really are unless you are up against the best competition."

McAlister will make the step back into the SuperPro arena with the support of Trent Blau's Mile High Karting outfit aboard a Maranello Kart. Blau approached McAlister after he had been working as tuner for Mile High K1 driver Chris Jackson.

Even with the desire to compete on the ProMoto Tour, the issue of a ban was still in place. McAlister contacted SKUSA CEO, Jim Murley, to discuss the possibility of returning to the series.

"I was encouraged by Mr. McAlister's interest in being re-instated to the tour," said Murley. "He is a qualified star in our sport of shifterkart racing and we await for him to finalize his plans and re-submit his letter of request for licensing re-instatement."

"I could care less about the past," said the talented driver/engine tuner. "I just want to race again."
