Allstar Midget Series Joins POWRi in 2017

Belleville, IL – The youthful and thriving Allstar Midget Series based out of the Kansas City, Missouri region will join POWRi in 2017.  The goal of the Allstar Midget Series at its inception in 2014 was to bring midget racing back to the Kansas City area on a regular basis, after a 40-year absence.  This goal has been accomplished and the next task for the Allstar Midget Series is to continue on the trajectory of growth for the series, building on their solid footing in the Kansas City region.

“Sanctioning the Allstar Midget Series is an excellent way to promote the growth of midget racing, while still giving teams the ability to run a local track on a fairly regular basis,” said POWRi Director of Competition, Jason McCord.

Staying true to its roots, the POWRi Allstar Outlaw Midget Series will continue running a Chili Bowl set of rules in which various types of midgets will be allowed to run.  Ray Boyles, current owner of the Allstar Midget Series, will continue as the Director of the POWRi Allstar Midget Series.
