USAC National Midgets Return on Saturday Night

The air will be filled with the sound of midget racing engines this Saturday evening at Anderson Speedway. The USAC Mopar National Midget Series will be in town for a 200-lap feature with some of the biggest names in open wheel racing converging on the quarter mile high banked asphalt oval.

Heading into the Thursday night’s event at O’Reilly Raceway Park, Brad Kuhn leads the USAC Mopar National Midget Series with a 34 point margin over Jerry Coons Jr. Third in the standings is California racer Brad Sweet, who drives for Kasey Kahne Racing. Two-time feature winner Darren Hagen is listed in fourth with Tracy Hines completing the top five.

The most recent winner in the USAC Mopar National Midget Series is Bobby East, who collected the victory at Twin Cities Raceway Park on Tuesday, July 14. East is also the last driver to win a USAC National event at Anderson Speedway when he earned the USAC Sprint Car win last May.

On Saturday, spectator gates open at 5 p.m. with racing beginning at 8. Admission is $15 for Adults and $4 for kids ages 6-12. Children five and under are admitted free.
