Quarter Midget racing is a good, safe, form of racing.  It is like go kart racing with full roll cages, 5 point race harness, helmet, neck brace, arm restraints, race suits and race gloves.  Once the car is purchased it is cheap racing.  You pay your entry, put in a little gas, and go.  You don't go through as many tires as kart racing and we only race oval tracks.  The group is family oriented and everything revolves around the kids, not the parents. 

Flat Karts

The GO Kart (or Flat Kart as we call them,) chassis is basically the same as a regular racing go-kart modified for ovals.  They do not have roll cages or safety belts (except for cage karts.)  The karts are set up to sacrifice right hand corner speed to improve left hand corner speed. Increasing the ability to raise the vehicles left side weight percentage and offsetting the driver to the left of the chassis, as well as offsetting the left rear frame rail to the right of the left front frame rail accomplish this. Some frames are offset or the kart is ran with “stagger” in the front and rear tires. Sometimes the right side tires are larger than the left side tires. This helps increase the karts ability to turn left; you can produce this same effect by putting a Styrofoam cup on a table and rolling it. The cup will “steer” towards the side with the smaller radius.

The Las Vegas Quarter Midget championship is dedicated to getting kids on the track racing, bring families together and make memories and friends for life.

We use QMA rules and QMA sanctioned.  We also race  Flat Karts.

We run a 1/12th quarter mile oval track for all classes.

Southern Nevada Open Wheel Racing Is the association that covers all of our open wheel racing cars.

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 races an oval track of one fifth of a mile in length or larger. The child's quarter midget track is 1/20th of a mile.  Our track is one of the biggest and fastest in the nation.  1/12th of a 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 with a Rookie Red restrictor plate, or one quarter the speed of the adult car. Current upper class quarter midgets can exceed well above 30 miles per hour, up to 60 mph, but remain safe due to the limited size of the track and the safety roll cages and safety gear.

There is always some element of danger in any type of racing however.

The drivers are 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.  As said above, our track is a 1/12th mile, banked, D shaped, paved oval.
