KOKOMO D1 MIDGET RACE SWITCHED TO “SPECIAL EVENT” STATUS

From Dick Jordan

The 2011 USAC Mopar D1 Midget championship will conclude this Saturday at the Toledo (OH) Speedway. This Friday’s Mopar D1 Midget race at the Kokomo (Ind.) Speedway dirt track has been switched to “special event – non points” status due to a track-implemented open tire rule.

The championship celebration will occur at the conclusion of Saturday’s Toledo race, which is part of the track’s busy weekend, which also includes the USAC Traxxas Silver Crown Series and the ARCA Stock Car Series.

Saturday’s Toledo events include complete preliminaries and feature events for the Mopar D1 Midgets (“Alex Pruett Memorial”) and the Traxxas Silver Crown cars (“Rollie Beale 150”) as well as practice and qualifying for Sunday’s ARCA 200-lapper.
