Quarter Midget Racing is a family oriented

sport for children ages 5 to 16.

Children race in Quarter Midget cars

that are a scaled-down (approximately 1/4 scale) version of an actual

midget-racer on oval tracks that are approximately 1/20th of a mile.

The

sport focuses on family participation, safety, improvement of mechanical and

driving skills, sportsmanship, and competitive fun.

Quarter Midget Racers

are built around a tubular frame and are fully suspended with springs or
torsion

bars and shocks. The bodies are fiberglass and can be painted to the driver's

preference.


SAFETY: Driver safety is the #1 prioroty in this sport.
Surrounding the driver is a full chrome-moly roll cage and nerf bars which
protect the driver. Other safety features include multi-point seat harnesses,
full-face helmets, wrist-restraints, neck support, and racing suits.

Statistically speaking, this sport is safer than most organized sports, as
injuries are very rare, due to the high emphasis on safety.

The engines are single cylinder and are manufactured by Honda, Continental,
Briggs & Stratton, and Deco. In the motors stock configuration they produce
between 2.5 & 4 horsepower. Modifications in the upper classes allow these
engines to reach several times the stock horsepower.

These air-cooled 4-cycle engines are reliable and can produce as much as 10,000
rpm's in their more highly modified forms.The cars, rules and safety procedures
are designed specifically for quarter midget racing and are dictated by the
Quarter Midget Association (QMA… http://www.quartermidgets.org/).
