BALTIMORE – Exciting Indoor Auto Racing is coming to the 1st Mariner Arena in Baltimore on Dec. 8.
Tickets for the first time event are slated to go on sale Oct. 29 at noon at all Ticketmaster locations and the arena box office.
The show will feature the exotic TQ (Three Quarter) Midget race cars and agile Champ Karts that have put on many exciting indoor racing shows for a number of years under Len Sammons Productions.
Other Indoor Racing events are scheduled for the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, R.I., on Dec. 31 and at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, N.J. for two consecutive days, Feb. 1-2, 2013.
The 1st Mariner Arena is near the very popular Camden Yards baseball stadium and in the middle of Baltimore’s trendy Inner Harbor area, a tourist mecca with dozens of shops, restaurants and attractions.
“Baltimore is a great location for an indoor race,” said event organizer Len Sammons. “It is easily accessible from central Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey. We expect the event to be as popular as our Atlantic City and Providence races have become in its very first year.”
Each class will compete against the clock in time trials that will determine starting positions in a series of qualifying heat races. The heat races will narrow the entries down to twenty-two starters for a 40-lap TQ Midget A-Main and a 25-lap Champ Kart feature event.
Grandstand gates will swing open at 6 p.m. with racing starting one hour later, beginning with heat races.
Ted Christopher of Plainville, Ct., a many time NASCAR Whelen Modified champion, and a multi-time Indoor race winner in both Providence and Atlantic City, is the first official entrant for the Baltimore and Providence races.
