Quarter Midget racing is a form of automobile racing. 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. An adult-size midget in the s and s could reach miles per hour, while the single-cylinder 7-cubic-inch quarter midget engine could make available a speed of 30 miles per hour in a rookie class called novices , or one-quarter the speed of the adult car. Most of the competitive classes run speeds near 45 miles per hour. Current upper-class quarter midgets can exceed 45 miles per hour, but remain safe due to the limited size of the track.

Student competes in Quarter Midget car racing circuit
The first version, announced at the end of June ,  was essentially a slightly more expensive badge-engineered version of the MkII Austin-Healey Sprite deluxe version. The original 'frogeye' Sprite had been introduced specifically to fill the gap in the market left by the end of production of the MG T-type Midget as its replacement, the MGA had been a significantly larger and more expensive car with greater performance. Many existing MG buyers turned to the Sprite to provide a modern low-cost sports car and so a badge-engineered MG version reusing the Midget name made sense. The new Midget differed from the Sprite only in grille design, badging, improved interior trim, better instruments and added external polished trim to justify its higher price.
For McCarl, the new endeavor checks off a lot of boxes for him personally, as he had hoped to find an opportunity to venture out in A fixture at Knoxville Raceway over the years, McCarl will now set his sights on the King of the West crown, as Tarlton Motorsports again focuses on the California-based series. McCarl joins Tarlton Motorsports after a very strong season that saw him capture his first career All Star Circuit of Champions feature event win to go along with two podiums with the series, as well as three Top-Five finishes.
