Quarter Midgets are the earliest entry to Speedway racing. A competitor (girl or boy) can start once they are the ripe old age of 8 years and race unto their 16th birthday.
You may think these kids don’t have the skills to put on a show at the Springs, but that couldn’t be further from the truth when they are lapping at just over 4 seconds slower than the Midget section.
These kids provide some awesome wheel to wheel action and with a field of over 12 cars, there is always some good racing to be seen.
If you look at the drivers on the podium each week from the TQ, Midget & Sprintcar classes, you will see many ex Quarter Midget drivers. So keep an eye on the Kiwikidz, for they will be our future champions.
