Brings back popular stop at Indianapolis Motor Speedway;
adds Las Vegas Motor Speedway
SPEEDWAY, IN (Dec. 8, 2021) — The United States Auto Club (USAC) .25 Series Presented by COOKOUT announced today its popular quarter midgets national championship schedule for the 2021 season.
With the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic still looming, the series has elected to kick off its national championship series in late spring with a stop in Pennsylvania at USAC.25-sanctioned club Montgomery County QMRC. Just like most all other sporting events, the 2020 USAC.25 national tour was canceled due to the pandemic.
The series will make its annual trip to Daytona International Speedway; however rather than going in February, drivers ages 5 and up from all over the country will descend upon the World Center of Racing on August 25-29 coinciding with NASCAR’s Cup and Xfinity Series race weekend.
For the first time, the series will be competing on site at Portland (Ore.) International Raceway, in conjunction with the NTT INDYCAR Series race weekend. The pavement national schedule wraps up with a long-awaited return to Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Oct. 27-31 in conjunction with the NHRA Dodge Nationals.
Three USAC.25-sanctioned clubs will play host to national pavement races in 2021. The dirt national championship will visit two east coast clubs and two in the Midwest.
For the first time in history, the USAC.25 drivers will have the opportunity to race on the dirt track at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The 2021 stop at IMS brings back the Battle At The Brickyard, an event that has been held for more than 10 years and raced on one of the paved parking lots that was transformed into a 1/20th-of-a-mile track.
With approximately 50 USAC.25 clubs located across the country, thousands of kids ages five and up, along with their families, participate in USAC-sanctioned quarter midget series events.
