THIS IS A RARE OPPORTUNITY FOR ANY ENTHUSIAST INTO MIDGET, HALF MIDGET, QUARTER MIDGET, AND GO KART RACING. VINTAGE '60'S QUARTER MIDGET RACER. EVERYONE IS FAMILIAR WITH MAJOR CIRCLE TRACK STARS IN VARIOUS DIVISIONS- TONY STEWART, A. J. FOYT, JEFF GORDON, SARAH FISHER, JIMMY VASSAR, JOEY LOGANO, BRAD KESOLOWSKI, TERRY AND BOBBY LABONTE, TO NAME A FEW. OBVIOUSLY, THESE PEOPLE DIDN'T DECIDE ONE DAY TO JUMP IN A NASCAR OR OPEN WHEEL VEHICLE AND GIVE RACING A TRY. MOST OF THESE STARS BEGAN AT A VERY EARLY AGE IN SMALL VEHICLES, AND ADVANCED THROUGH THE YEARS INTO BIGGER AND FASTER MODELS. IT IS ONLY THROUGH EXPERIENCE, KNOWLEDGE, AND SEAT TIME THAT A RACER CAN ADVANCE TO THE PREMIER LEVELS OF THE SPORT. ALL THE ABOVE MENTIONED RACERS BEGAN THEIR CAREERS IN SMALL GO KARTS, THEN ADVANCED TO COMPETITION IN QUARTER MIDGETS. QUARTER MIDGETS HAVE BEEN AROUND IN ONE FORM OR ANOTHER SINCE BEFORE WORLD WAR II. THERE ARE TWO MAIN SANCTIONING BODIES- UNITED STATES AUTO CLUB(USAC) AND QUARTER MIDGETS OF AMERICA(QMA). TO THIS DAY, THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF QUARTER MIDGET RACERS ACROSS THE COUNTRY AND THE SPORT IS AS POPULAR AS EVER. THE OLDEST CONTINUALLY OPERATING TRACK IN THE COUNTRY IS BELIEVED TO BE ON THE WEST COAST. CAPITOL QUARTER MIDGET ASSOCIATION HAS OPERATED A DIRT TRACK SINCE 1954.

Quarter Midget racing is a pastime for the whole family. The racing is limited to the youngsters (both boys and girls) between the ages of 5 and 16, but the father or mother, as crew chief, and mother father in the timer/scorer tower also play a very important role. The rules and specifications are extremely strict so that no competitor can have a distinct mechanical advantage over the other racers.

 

Quarter Midget tracks, both dirt and asphalt, are designed specifically for Quarter Midget racing. Most of the tracks are banked, 1/20 mile around the inside, and 25-32 feet wide. The average pattern that a driver takes is approximately 366 feet long, and a fast stock class car will take about 7 seconds to complete one lap, averaging 30 MPH and reaching peak speeds of about 36 MPH on the straights. As the drivers grow older and driving skills improve, they have the opportunity to advance to more powerful and faster cars. The next step up the ladder is the Junior and Senior division of the Half Midgets.

Body style appears very similar to Bose or Butler, but it is unknown what body it is. Full tube chassis with integrated roll cage. Solid axles with A arm suspension, and shock absorbers on all four corners. Alloy wheels with racing slicks.

 

 

 The original engine was a McCulloch racing engine, but a Honda engine is now in the racer. Engine turns, but has not been started. It is possible it will run with maintenance. It may or may not need rebuilding or replacement.

 

 

Vintage tuck and roll seat with frontal padding. Vintage steering wheel with ignition cutoff switch. Throttle and brake pedals. Racing harness.

 

This is one of the rare chances to own a vintage Quarter Midget racer via a legitimate, no reserve auction. It doesn't get any better than this.

 

 

I have been collecting for over 30 years.  My favorites are classic muscle cars, guitars, rock 'n' roll memorabilia, antiques, collectibles, art, and rare documents.

There are over 400 videos to view and some of my TV shows I have done in the past.  I appeared on the TV show "Final Offer" on June 7, 2012 on Discovery Channel with Elvis's hair.  The episode is called "Heavy Metal" and re-runs air periodically.
