Sports venue



The Las Vegas Quarter Midget site is dedicated to getting kids on the track racing.  Bottom line.
We will be racing at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.  USAC Quarter Midget racing is a form of automobile racing. The cars are approximately one quarter (1/4) the size of a full size midget race car. The adult size midget being raced during the start of quarter midget racing, used an oval track of one fifth of a mile in length. The childs quarter midget track is one quarter that length, or 1/20th mile. An adult size midget in the 1940s and 1950s could reach 120 miles per hour, while the single cylinder 7 cubic inch quarter midget engine could make available a speed of 30 miles per hour, or one quarter the speed of the adult car. Current upper class quarter midgets can exceed well above 30 miles per hour, but remain safe due to the limited size of the track.
The drivers are typically restricted to ages 5 to 16. Tracks are typically banked ovals one-twentieth of a mile long, and have a surface of dirt, concrete, or asphalt.
