BELLEVILLE, Ill. – Performance Open Wheel Racing Inc. has formed a partnership with the Bay Cities Racing Ass’n.

The BCRA Midget Series will be rebranded as the POWRi BCRA Lucas Oil Midget Series beginning this season.

Founded in 1939, the Bay Cities Racing Ass’n has a rich history of midget racing California. For eight decades, the BCRA has been giving drivers a proving ground and giving fans the thrilling races they crave, be it on the dirt tracks or on the pavement surfaces.

This partnership will serve as the doorway to bigger and better things for BCRA, which will include a handful of benefits. BCRA officials will receive a hand in restructuring and reorganizing the series, along with increased payout purses for the racers. The BCRA dirt schedule will grow exponentially, and the BCRA marketing and social media management will be strengthened in the process.

POWRi, based out of Belleville, Ill., now includes the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League, the POWRi Lucas Oil West Midget League, the POWRi Lucas Oil Rocky Mountain Midget Series and the POWRi BCRA Lucas Oil Midget Series.

“The addition of BCRA to the POWRi brand is a big step for us in expanding outside of the Midwest,” said POWRi League Director Jason McCord. “Moving into California, this will allow us across the board to begin exploring options such as increasing point funds and creating more national television opportunities.”
