You can get your mid-week racing fix early as the United States Auto Club Midgets visit the Bryant Heating and Cooling Indianapolis Speedrome® on Tuesday night July 12th. This IUPUI Elite 8 Midget Series has races set for the USAC Mopar D1 Midgets, Ford Focus Midgets, and Focus Young Guns in a rare Tuesday appearance. Some of the best and brightest rising stars in open wheel racing are climbing the motorsports ladder each week in these divisions. See tomorrow’s champions grow their resume right in front of your eyes. Practice begins at 5:30pm with racing getting underway at 7pm.

The action has been intense and thrilling so far this season in United States Auto Club competition. Last week saw Columbus, Ohio’s Bryan Nuckles earn his second straight and second career feature victory in the USAC Mopar D1 Midget series. Both wins have come at the Bryant Heating and Cooling Indianapolis Speedrome®. He led the final 25 circuits of the 50-lap main event in his Columbus Motor Speedway sponsored Beast/Ford Midget. Mario Marietta led the first 25 laps and finished second ahead of Morgan Nelson, Jake Blackhurst and Caleb Armstrong.

North Carolina racing aces Nick Drake and Cole Custer both scored feature victories during last week’s IUPUI Elite 8 Midgets Series program. Drake led all 50 laps of the USAC Midwest Ford Focus feature in his Haas Automation Beast Midget. Ross Rankine finished second ahead of Nick Hamilton, Jessica Bean and Jarett Andretti. Custer passed early leader Jared Irvan on lap 23 and led the final eight laps of the Focus Young Guns feature in his Haas Automation Beast Midget. Irvan, son of NASCAR star Ernie, finished second in his first Speedrome start ahead of Sam McGhee, Bryant Dawson and Stevie Kuhn.
