For the first time, Midget racing will return to East Central Indiana for back to back weekends of racing on Saturday Night, July 28th and August 4, at the Montpelier Motor Speedway. For the event, a provision has been made to the payout for a field of less than 10 midgets with a guaranteed minimum payout of $300 To Win | $75 To Start. The payout will continue to slide up the scale based on car count with a potential $800 To Win | $150 To Start on the line with a full field. The series through 3 races has averaged 15 cars per event with Shane Hollingsworth posting 2 feature wins. Nick Speidel is the most recent midget winner at Montpelier.

Lynsey Tilton will enter the event as the current pointís leader followed by Joe Liguori, Shane Hollingsworth, Nick Speidel, and Kent Kreighbaum.

Mini Sprint drivers looking to run wingless are welcome in the midget division along with midgets powered by Ford Focus, Ecotech, and other engine platforms. Engines powered by these platforms receive an unlimited weight break. The division has an open tire rule.

Midget rules and the complete payout tiers can be found on our rules page located at our website

Gates Open @ 3 | Hot Laps @ 5| Racing 6:30

We hope to have your support for local midget racing in Indiana!
