Come out and watch some of the best racing around. You can spend the day with us and see drivers from all around the Country compete at the #1 Quarter Midget Track in the United States. The North Georgia Quarter Midget Association welcomes you and your family to come out and watch the races and get to know the drivers and there family's. Admission is free; we have concessions and plenty of excitement for the whole family.

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-racecar 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 Racecars 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/).

question’s about becoming a quarter midget driver or about the race please call club president Eric Kimbarl
