Stafford Springs, CT — The American Three Quarter Midget Racing Association (ATQMRA) will make their inaugural appearance at Stafford Speedway during the 2016 NAPA Auto Parts Fall Final on the weekend of October 1-2, in a $1,000 to win 30-lap feature on the Stafford mini-mile. Cars will utilize Len Sammons Production Indoor Race rules, including racing without wings and motor rules.
“We’re excited to bring a new kind of racing to Stafford to close out our 2016 race season,” explained Stafford GM/COO Mark Arute. “The TQ midgets have been putting on great shows the last few years in the indoor racing series and since our mini-mile is right around the same size as most of the indoor venues, we thought it would be a great addition to our NAPA Fall Final weekend. The mini-mile will be seeing some great action throughout 2016 with the US Legend Cars, the Wild Thing Kart Jr Outlaws and Sr. Champs and now the TQ midgets.”
Recent excitement surrounding Indoor TQ midget racing has attracted some of the best in northeast racing including Ted Christopher, Ryan Preece, Justin Bonsignore, Patrick Emerling, and Jimmy Blewett. Stafford’s all-time winningest driver Christopher, who has multiple wins on the indoor circuit including 2 at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City has already committed to the Oct 1st event.
