Trivia Question - USAC & UMRA

Several USAC drivers have competed with the UMRA TQ midgets. Some on their way up the racing ladder, and others during their USAC careers.

How many USAC driving champions have won a feature in UMRA? And who are they?

Tony Stewart, Tate Martz, Butch Wilkerson, Robby Flock. Page Jones, Mike Streicher, and Bobby Michnowicz are on the list and I believe they have won regional USAC titles (either midwest or West Coast).

Butch Wilkerson & Page Jones (at least to my knowledge) did not win a USAC championship, although they are UMRA winners.

There's still a few more left to guess.

Terry Goff was the 1990 USAC Speedrome Rookie of the Year but he never won a USAC championship there.

Gary Howard is correct!



There are still 2 more. One was a feature winner in the 1970's, the other in the 2000's.

Hunsaker didn't win a feature and Dana Carter won w/ UMRA not Pancho if I'm correct.

Jim, Pancho Carter is correct. Even though he is not listed in the UMRA All Time Feature winners list he is in the 1970 UMRA Yearbook.
FEATURE RACE WINNERS
July 24th.....Salem, Ind......D. Carter, Jr.

FAST TIME
July 21st.....Madison, Ind......D. Carter, Jr.

TRACK RECORDS
Madison, Ind......D. Carter, Jr. #3.....11.97 seconds.....1970

He's still listed as the track record holder in the UMRA yearbooks (Duane Carter, Jr.) up until the 1977 book which lists him as the track record holder on the old track at 11.970 seconds and Ronnie Ambrose as the track record holder on the new track at 17.099 seconds.
AJ you're right, Hunsaker didn't win a feature. Also Dana Carter is correct as a UMRA winner (7/22/72 at Rushville) but not a USAC champion. He also had fast time and won the feature on 7/19/72 at Salem.

Yes, it appears there have been some things lost over the years...Robbie's feature victory in 02 (I think) is no longer in the yearbook or website either. Just noticed Ralph Bickel Sr, gained a win from 1997 yearbook (2) to 2007 (3) even though he obviously hasn't driven during that time.
