INDIANAPOLIS – The Gulf Coast Midget Championship, USAC’s newest racing series, has announced a six-race schedule at two Texas venues.
Stephenville’s 281 Speedway serves as the host of three dates including the series opener on April 1. In addition, the series visits the quarter-mile dirt oval on June 3 and the series season finale on Aug. 5.
The quarter-mile dirt Superbowl Speedway in Greenville greets the USAC Gulf Coast Midget Championship on three occasions during the 2017 campaign as well on April 29, May 27 and July 29.
All cars participating in the series must appear and fit the guidelines of a traditional midget. Cars powered by spec engines such as the Honda/Ford Focus, Volkswagen or the Chevy II with an entirely stock-production head and block, etc. do not have a minimum weight.
For all purpose-built racing engines, cars must meet a minimum weight of 1035 pounds (including driver).
All 1000cc or greater upright cars are eligible to compete without a minimum weight and may be chain-driven and utilize a traditional driveline or quick-change rear-end.
