USAC Ignite Midget racing explodes on four fronts this week, with races at Las Vegas, Nev., Plymouth, Ind., Elma, Wash. and Stockton, Calif. impacting point standings in the Midwest, Western and Northwestern series.
The events at Plymouth are part of track’s “Plymouth Palooza” and will feature the USAC Mopar National Midgets and the Midwest Ignite Midgets on both dirt and paved surfaces. Those races are Friday and Saturday at Plymouth Motor Speedway. Las Vegas Motor Speedway’s Bullring hosts a Tuesday night program, while Saturday races are slated at Grays Harbor Raceway in Washington and Stockton 99 Speedway.
