The United States Auto Club Elite 8 Midget Series presented by Motorsports at IUPUI will close out its eight event series with a special treat for fans on Wednesday July 20th at the Bryant Heating & Cooling Indianapolis Speedrome®. The USAC Mopar D1 Midgets, Ford Focus Midgets, and Focus Young Guns will all compete in double main events giving fans twice as much racing for the price of admission. Speaking of fans, it will be UAW Night at the Races. We welcome all of these union members and their families out for a full evening of entertainment. Also, Indianapolis area youth will get a special discount as the Laps for Literacy program will allow any youth participating in a summer reading program into the races for free while their family members pay only $5.

This is one of the most ambitious events in USAC history in terms of feature events in a single night of racing. Six feature events will be conducted at the track which has hosted more USAC races than any other in America. Two 20-lap races are on tap for the Midwest Focus Young Guns, while two 30-lap races each are scheduled for the Midwest Ford Focuses and Mopar D1 Midgets. “This is going to be a unique night in USAC history,” says USAC’s James Spink. “We are rapidly approaching a historic 500th event at the Speedrome and I can think of no better facility to host this ambitious of a race program. Six features, what a bonus for race fans and participants alike. It should be a spectacular night of racing.”

The 2011 season has marks the first partnership between USAC and IUPUI. USAC has been the primary sanctioning body for open wheel race cars competing in the United Sates since 1956, while IUPUI has the unique distinction of offering the only four-year bachelor’s degree in Motorsports Engineering in the country. The partnership offers unique opportunities for students to see the inner workings of an important motorsports series. This has been a wonder and historic campaign. See what happens next this Wednesday. Here are the current top of the series standings.
