Pueblo (SCQMA) and Montana MCQMA). Check our schedule - you are welcome to

A Quarter Midget car is a scaled-down version of an actual midget racer, approximately 1/4 scale. The cars are built around a tubular frame and are fully suspended with springs or torsion bars and shocks. The bodies are fiberglass, usually painted to the driver’s preference. Surrounding the driver is a chrome-moly roll cage and nerf bars. The engines are single cylinder and are manufactured by Honda, Continental, Briggs & Stratton, and Deco. In the motors stock configuration they produce between 2.5 & 4 horse power. Modifications in the upper classes allow these engines to reach several times the stock horse power. These air-cooled 4-cycle engines are reliable and can produce as much as 10,000 rpm's in their more highly modified forms.
Midget Racing is divided into 14 classes and divisions with ages ranging from
5-16: Junior Novice, Senior Novice, Junior Honda, Junior Animal, Senior Honda,
Senior Animal, Heavy Honda, Junior Super-stock, Senior Super-stock, Heavy
Super-stock, Modified, Light B, Heavy B, Light A, Heavy A, Light World Formula
and Heavy World Formula. Additionally 1/4 Midget drivers may graduate to Junior
1/2 Midgets. Junior 1/2 midget drivers may be ages 12-17. Quarter Midget Racing
not only hosts many weekly races, but also local Regional races, one State
Championship race per region, and for the more serious competitor, three Grand
National Events (two asphalt track and one dirt track race).
