INDIANAPOLIS – The second season of USAC Radical Focus Midget Series racing awaits competitors this year, with a schedule consisting of dates on paved ovals spanning from Arizona to Kentucky and from Tennessee to Idaho.
All events will pay points toward the season championship, which was captured by California’s Joseph Holiday last year.
Two further events to be run in the state of California are pending at press time.
Havasu 95 Speedway in Lake Havasu City, Ariz., bookends the season, with four total events, all of which have feature events 50 laps in length. Two races start the campaign there on March 19-20, and two will be held at the conclusion of the year on Nov. 12-13.
The purse for all four races will be based on the car count and will be held in conjunction with USAC’s Eastern Midget Ass’n.
A big three-race weekend for the Radical Focus Midgets comes to the mid-south for a trio of events in Kentucky and Tennessee during the month of August – a doubleheader with the King of the Wing Sprint Car Series each night.
First up is Kentucky Motor Speedway in Whitesville, Ky., on Aug. 5, followed by Veterans Motorplex in Greenbrier, Tenn., on Aug. 6 and Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway on Aug. 7.
All three shows will be co-sanctioned by the USAC Eastern Midget Ass’n.
On Sept. 25-26, the series heads to Idaho’s Meridian Speedway for back-to-back races at the Chaz Groat Memorial, honoring the life of the standout Focus Midget driver who recently perished in a car accident.
