If you have never been to Mid-America you owe it to yourself to check out the racing action.
We know that our spectators and riders come out to see racing and that is what you will see at Mid-America.
Track prep starts early in the week which means that the amount of maintenance required on race night is minimal.

The 2018 version of the Mid-America Speedway Season is in the final stretch with two events remaining on the schedule. In typical Mid-America style, we continue to try and take a unique approach to our events, and have some exciting racing action coming up.
October 21st: "The 65cc Showdown at Indy" and Vintage Heavy Night
The original Vintage Heavy Night was scheduled for 9/16, but had to be moved due to a last minute scheduling conflict with the fair board. For the last several years, we have offered a $100 bonus per cylinder to the winning rider. Last year was the first year that a twin cylinder machine won the event, and Denne Williams took home a $200 bonus for his efforts.
Now on to our big story line of our October 21st event....
Early last week, we saw a Facebook post commenting that flat track needs to attract the younger riders, and have a night featuring these young riders. We felt that this was a great idea, and started speaking to some of the 65cc rider's parents who also loved the idea. We are proud to announce that the October 21st event will be titled "The 65cc Showdown at Indy"/Young Guns Night at Mid-America. The winning bike owner will receive $250 to win! We don't know for sure, but think this is one of the larger purses ever paid to the 65cc class. Please note that we do not want to jeopardize a rider's amateur status, so we are paying the money to the winning bike owner as opposed to the rider.
October 28th: Halloween Race
Back in 2009, we came up with the idea of a Halloween race. The idea was that would race in their costumes and go trick or treating in the pits, and have a relaxed time at the last race of the season. The event exceeded our expectations by leaps and bounds, with last years event receiving 225 entries. Last year, Bronson Buman took home the $500 for winning the Open class, and this year's event will pay the same. Please note that a rider's costume will determine where they line up for their heat race as determined by our judges. The better the costume, the better the starting position!
