Speedway, IN NAMARS Officials have released the 2003 Championship MidgetCar Schedule today, reflecting fifteen events for the organization's premier touring division.

MidgetCar teams will visit ten different Midwestern facilities in five states, with ten pavement races and five on dirt surfaces. The 2003 schedule reflects several premier events including the NAMARS 500, the Pepsi/Mt. Dew Knoxville MidgetCar Nationals.

And the Twin 25's at Angell Park Speedway, a return to the fabled Winchester Speedway, then season finale Oktoberfest MidgetCar Nationals at LaSalle (IL) Speedway. All events posting significant purse and/or bonus awards.

This year's conservative schedule covering a reduced geographic area, when coupled with lower tire costs for pavement events and the 2003 NAMARS Leader's Circle's bonus program, will help to address the financial concerns associated with high-powered MidgetCar's competition.

The 5th Annual Indiana Five Crown Nationals, while not on the 2003 schedule due to scheduling conflicts with two other major open wheel events in the Midwest on the traditional Five Crown weekend, will return to the 2004 NAMARS schedule.

Also returning in 2004, will be the NAMARS MidgetCar's Florida WinterNationals in February 2004. NAMARS will sanction 63 races at 45 events for five MidgetCar divisions during the 2003 season, co-sanctioning with a record seven different MidgetCar organizations.
