Quarter Midget Racing for ages 5-16
EXCITING NEWS FOR 2023!
USAC and NASCAR announced a new partnership in the sport. Starting in 2023, USAC's .25 program will now be known as The NASCAR YOUTH SERIES, a regional championship within the NASCAR ladder of racing series. All series branding will move to the new NASCAR colors, and all drivers will be supplied with iron-on NASCAR Youth Series patches for their driver uniforms and series decals for their cars. Clubs will be furnished with the NASCAR Youth Series flags to fly over their club track, and all series merchandise will now carry the NASCAR colors.
NASCAR Youth Series is the sanctioning body for the quarter midget racing division of the United States Auto Club (USAC). Quarter midget racing has been around since before World War II. It is a family-oriented motorsport that involves children ages 5-16 racing in specially-prepared cars. The cars, rules and safety procedures are designed specifically for kids. Quarter midget racing is divided into 15 classes/divisions. Kids typically race on oval tracks approximately 1/20th of a mile long. The surface of these tracks are dirt, concrete or asphalt.
Michigan Motorsports Racing Association (MMRA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in April 1962 dedicated to youth racing. The MMRA club and track are located on the grounds of the Oakland County Sportsmen’s Club in Clarkston, Michigan.
Our track is 1/20th of a mile and is a USAC Sanctioned Club. MMRA is a member of the Midwest Thunder Quarter Midget Racing Series which includes 10 separate quarter midget clubs from Ohio, Indiana and Michigan. Our club oversees local club races, along with regional events.
The purpose of MMRA is to provide children and their families an environment that fosters healthy sportsmanship, friendship, family interaction, generosity, and responsibility through a safe and exciting outdoor sport.
