Midget Racing began in California, in June of 1933 and before long, the idea had spread across the country. The tracks were only 1/4 mile in length and were mostly dirt. The cars that raced these tracks were small racers with four-cylinder engines and many being built in back-yards and garages. They had a high power-to-weight ratio and in modern times, the cars can top 300 horsepower. The cars race in tight, wheel-to-wheel competition which provides much enjoyment for the spectators and the participants.

Races are usually range from just a few miles to 25 miles.
