    An Open Letter to Friends of MAS

    Mid-America first opened in the spring of 2008, and while we had to increase a rider's entry fee by $5 for their first class for the 2009 season, we have held our pricing stable for the last nine seasons. Unfortunately, nearly every one of our costs have risen to the point where we are going to have to raise adult pit passes to $15.  Pit passes for riders age 0-9 will not change, and neither will grandstand passes for youth or adults.  

    We would also like to point out that we also increased payout by about 10% for the 2010 season, and have a featured class at almost every race, that pays a minimum of $100 to win.  We feel that our payout is second to none for a track that runs a semi-weekly program, and also we are one of the few tracks that posts their payout on their website and also at signup so that we can be 100% transparent.

    Again, we apologize for this, but this was our only choice that would keep the lights on.  The crew will continue to do everything that they can to provide an excellent racing surface and an efficient program.  

    Lastly, the fairgrounds has had signs up saying no dogs for probably 20 years.  We have not enforced this policy as well as we should, and we need to start enforcing it starting with the June 2nd event.  

    Now, on to the fun stuff.... 

    2018 Season
    As we mentioned in our last newsletter, when MAS was first built, our youth classes often had more entries than the adult classes.  Over the past 10 seasons these kids moved up to the adult classes with many turning professional.  Where we came up short was that we did not back fill the youth classes which really is the future of the sport.  With that said, and in following our motto of doing things differently, we are going to have a three round series within our 2018 series that will feature the future of the sport.  We are calling it Mid-America Features the Future, and any rider that wins two of the four main events will receive a $100 bonus on top of the prize money for that night. 

    The next event is June 2nd, and is round one of our Featuring the Future Series where the winning bike owner of 80-200 will receive $250.  We need to note that most sanctioning bodies state that amateurs cannot be paid.  Therefore, we will pay the winning bike owner in order to not jeopardize a riders amateur status.  Anybody that has been to the Amateur Grands will understand why we do this, and thank us later!  

    The racing continues the following weekend on June 9th, with a regular points night.  We then take nearly a month off, and then return on July 7th for Sr. 50+ Night where we pay a $100 bonus to the winner.  July 21st is round two of our Featuring the Future Series with $250 going to the winning bike owner in the 65cc class.  Also running this night is the a qualifier for the Bultaco Astro Cup at the AFT Springfield Short track.  The Bultacos will have their own class at this years AFT Springfield Short track which will be televised on Fans Choice and NBC Sports and the top three finishers in the Astro class will be invited to the Springfield Short track.  The final round of the Featuring the Future Series is one week later on July 28th with a $100 bonus to the winning bike owner in 50cc Shaft, and $200 to the winning bike owner in 50cc Chain.  

    The action continues on Friday, August 3rd with a round of the AMA Vintage Dirt Track National Series.  The action continues the following night on August 4th with our Speedway Shootout Invitational, all regular classes and the second night of the AMA Vintage Dirt Track National Series.  August 11th in our Open Quad Night which is another first for us where we are putting up $500 to win the Open Quad Class, and Joe Stahl from JLS Motorsports is putting up an additional $500 to the winner.  The MAS crew then gets a much deserved week off after running six races in five weeks, but we return on August 25th for Vet 30+ Night where we will bonus the Vet 30+ winner $100.  

    September starts off with Super Sr. 60+ night with a $100 bonus to the winner, and a $50 bonus to the oldest rider starting the 60+ Main event.  September concludes with a $100/cylinder bonus going to the winner of Vintage Heavy on September 29.  

    Next on the schedule is 250 Money Night on October 6th, with $500 going to the winner of the 250 Money class.  October 20th is Vintage light night, and the 2018 season concludes on October 27th at our 10th annual Halloween race with $500 going to the winner of the Open bike class.  The 2018 Awards Banquet will be two weeks later on November 10th at the Sunshine Bowling Center in Clermont, IN        

    Reserved Parking and Season Pit Passes
    We have 14 points paying events our our 2018 schedule.  We are offering a VIP season pit pass for $165, which is a $210 value. Youth passes are $55,  

    Once again, we will be offering reserved pit parking for the 2018 season.  Vans and trucks with small trailers will be parked with their front bumpers facing the fence that runs between the pit entrance and the hill (rear of vehicle would be facing turn 3 and 4 wall. Longer vehicles would park on the other side of the fence facing the vans and trucks with small trailers. Cost is $100 for the season and includes a sign with your name and number in your choice of red, green, black or blue identifying your reserved spot. Please contact us to reserve your spot today
