Ford Focus Midgets at Limaland August 1

The 2003 Indiana Ford Focus Midget Car Series will serve as the feature event of Limaland Motor Speedway's Four Banger Friday on August 1. The announcement was made today by officials of the Lima, Ohio track and the United States Auto Club. The 1/4-mile dirt track also hosts the third stop in this year's "Buckeye Nationals" June 20.

"Based on the success and popularity of the USAC Sprint Car and Midget Car races here at Lima, adding the USAC Ford Focus Midget Car Series was an easy decision to make," said Jeff Jarvis, President of Limaland Motorsports Park. "It will bring a national flavor to our Four Banger Friday with the Focus Midgets joining our sprint cars, modifieds and stock cars," Jarvis continued.

"The USAC Ford Focus Midget Car Series will put on a great show on the dirt high banks of Limaland," added Eric Bunn, National Coordinator of USAC's Ford Focus Series. "The event will also give us the opportunity to feature the Ford Zetec engine for the folks at the Lima Ford Engine Plant and the local Ford Dealers. We think it will be a showcase night for the series and our competitors."
