TRENTON, N.J. – The list of Three Quarter (TQ) Midget drivers entered for the first race of the three event Fatheadz Indoor Racing Series is best characterized in two ways – quality and quantity.

Among the nearly 60 competitors are a quintet who earned circuit or track championships in 2012.

Tim Buckwalter of Pottstown, Pa., the recently crowned 2012 American Racing Drivers Club (ARDC) Midget driving champion, is looking for his first win indoors.

Ted Christopher of Plainville, Conn., a five-time winner indoors between Atlantic City and Providence, is the 2012 Stafford Motor Speedway track king.

Mike Lichty, a one-time winner indoors, and one of two Canadian drivers entered in the Fatheadz three race series, won his first ISMA Supermodified driving championship in 2012.

Anthony Sesely, Matawan, N.J., will be seeking his first TQ Midget win after earning the 2012 Wall Stadium Modified track championship for the second consecutive year.

Ryan Tidman of Levittown, Pa., will be a contender in the Indoor races after having won the 2012 ATQMRA Three Quarter Midget outdoor championship for the second straight year.

The 1st Mariner Center race, scheduled for Dec. 8, is the first of a three indoor auto racing event series produced by Len Sammons Motorsports Productions.

The newly named Fatheadz Series’ second event is logged in for Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, R.I., on Dec. 31 and the two-race weekend finale is scheduled for Feb. 1-2, 2013 in Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall.

Entries have been coming in at a steady rate for the Baltimore, Providence and Atlantic City in the Champ Kart support division as well. Atlantic City’s schedule of events includes two other class, a 600 Micro Sprint class and the Slingshots.

The addition of the Baltimore race this year to the previous events in Providence and Atlantic City provides TQ drivers and Champ Kart racers with major events in three destination cities.
