ARCA Midgets; 20 Years and Still Counting
The ARCA Auto Value Midget Series, with new impetus from Auto Value Parts Stores as title sponsor, is ready to embark upon its 20th season of competition in 1999. At present, 14 races are slated for the new season with the show opener scheduled for April 10th at the Michigan State Fair Coliseum in Detroit, a 1/7th mile indoor concrete track. In all, the touring open wheel division will see action in 4 states to include Ohio, Michigan, Indiana and Illinois. In step with tradition, the series returns to Flat Rock Speedway in Flat Rock, Michigan in ’99 as well as Grundy County Speedway in Morris, Illinois and Baer Field Raceway in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Tracks making their return to the ARCA Auto Value Midget Series schedule include the ultra-fast ½ mile Toledo Speedway, Springport Speedway in Springport, Michigan, (formerly Michigan Ideal Speedway) Kalamazoo Speedway in Kalamazoo, Michigan and on the clay at Millstream Speedway in Findlay, Ohio. Additions to the schedule are possible. Also, the July 16th and 17th double-header at Toledo and Flat Rock will be packaged in a 1 hour tape-delayed television format for SPEEDVISION.
