Description

The show will feature the exotic TQ Midgets Race Cars and agile Champ Karts, the two divisions have put on exciting indoor racing shows for many years under Len Sammons Productions.

“Baltimore is a great location for an indoor race,” said event organizer Len Sammons. “It is easily accessible from central Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey. We expect the event to be as popular as our Atlantic City and Providence races have become in its very first year.”

Each class will compete against the clock in time trials that will determine starting positions in a series of qualifying heat races. The heat races will narrow the entries down to twenty-two starters for a 40-lap TQ Midget A-Main and a 25-lap Champ Kart feature event.

Doors will swing open at 6:00 p.m. with racing starting one hour later beginning with qualifying heat races.

Ted Christopher of Plainville, Ct., a many time NASCAR Modified champion, and a multi-time Indoor race winner in both Providence and Atlantic City, is the first official entrant for the Baltimore and Providence races. Other drivers such as Lou Cicconi Jr. and Joey Payne are expected to lead the TQ-Midget entries in the inaugural event. Previous Indoor Champ Kart race winner Norman Hynes of Linthicum, Md. is expected to be a fan favorite as he bids for a home state victory opportunity.
