You asked, we listened. When drivers strap in for the 2019 Hoosier Tire Mid Atlantic ATQMRA powered by VP Racing Fuels, a new, simplistic rule will be set in place for competitors alike.
Beginning this season, cars will only be required to make three starts in order to establish a handicap for the current season. In years past, cars was only eligible to earn a handicap when competing in a minimum of three of the previous five events ran. Starting in 2019, a car’s handicap status will remain the same once three races in the season are ran, regardless of when those races are run.
“We have had a lot of discussion with full time and part time teams throughout the season, and I think this will help with some of the challenges our teams face. We are one of the most competitive series out there, and in the past I can see where teams would get discouraged knowing that when they show up they will start behind the full time teams.” stated series President Buddy Sload.
The Hoosier Tire Mid Atlantic ATQMRA powered by VP Racing Fuels is set to begin on Saturday, April 20th, 2019 at the Mahoning Valley Speedway, in Lehighton, PA. For more information about the Premier TQ Midget Racing Organization, and like us on Facebook at facebook.com/atqmra.
