The USAC Mopar D1 Midget Series now prepares its 2011 series opener May 14 at the Salem (Ind.) Speedway after rain forced cancellation of last Saturday night’s USAC racing program at the Montpelier (Ind.) Motor Speedway.
The Salem event will take place on the track’s brand-new quarter-mile paved oval, located inside the half-mile.
The Mopar D1 Midget Series continues the traditions of the former Regional Midget Series, which has been renamed D1 and Dalron Armstrong of New Castle, Ind. is the defending champion.
