Airport Raceway in Garden City, Kan., will host the two-day Midget Round Up event featuring the POWRi Lucas Oil West Midget Series and the Rocky Mountain Midget Racing Association on Sept. 2-3. It marks the first time since 1999 the fifth-mile oval will hold a midget race.

“It’s the track I grew up racing at,” TBJ Promotions Founder Tony Bruce Jr. said. “I ran my first junior sprint race there. I started racing micro sprints there. The first five or six years I raced anything was spent at that track.”

Bruce Jr. won the junior sprint track championship twice.

“It’s exciting for me to go back and put on a big event for the community where I grew up racing,” he said.

The weekend will begin on Sept. 1 with a practice that starts at 7:30 p.m. Entry is free for the grandstands and $10 per person in the pits.

The main gates are scheduled to open at 5 p.m. with racing at 7:30 p.m. during both race nights, which also feature Colorado lightning sprints and non-wing micro sprints.

Adult tickets are $15 for Sept. 2 and $20 for Sept. 3. A two-day general admission pass is available for only $30 at http://www.TBJPromotions.com or at the ticket booth on the first day of the event. Children ages 6 to 12 are $5 per night with children 5 and younger free.

“This event wouldn’t be possible without the help of the Finney County Convention and Visitors Bureau,” Bruce Jr. said. “We are excited for the opportunity to put on a great event for a great community.”

Additional marketing partners include: Burtis Motor Company, Mid-America Millwright, The Tunnel Car Wash, Johnson Septic Tank Services and Jax Sports Grille.
