January 11, 2011 – With one year under its belt, the newest 410 sprint car series in the Midwest is surging into 2012 with plenty of steam. In addition to returning contingency sponsors, the Midwest Open Wheel Association (MOWA) is announcing six new partners, and would like to welcome Hoosier Tire for this year’s campaign. The series has tentatively set up a race schedule consisting of twenty nights of action in Illinois and Iowa! The schedule is a work in progress as officials work behind the scenes to build a series for its fans, racers, promoters and partners!
Contingency sponsors returning in 2012 include DMI, Eagle Chassis, HRP Wings, Maxim Chassis, RaceBumpers, Ratewin.com and Super Shox.
New contingency sponsors this season are Brown & Miller Racing Solutions (BMRS), Butlerbuilt Professional Seat Systems, Hinchman Indy Uniforms and Racewear, Keizer Wheels, RadicalRacegear.com, and Ron Wicks VP Racing Fuel. Stay tuned for more information on all of MOWA’s partners!
In 2012, a right rear Hoosier tire rule will be enacted. The rule will cover the right rear only and requires an SC15 or SC25 tire. MOWA would like to welcome Hoosier on board!
The series’ tentative schedule opens up on Friday, April 20 in Lincoln, Illinois. It includes twenty nights of racing, at nine different facilities in Illinois and Iowa. Changes in the schedule are expected as race season nears, so stay tuned!
