Road To The Gold On Hold Until 2013


PONTOON BEACH, Ill. – USAC Mopar .25 Midget Series officials and Tri-City Speedway race organizers have re-assessed the proposed “Road to the Gold” concept, originally scheduled as part of this weekend’s “Gold Crown Midget Nationals” program.

After extensive re-evaluation, principals have focused on a 2013 format for the event which will involve Pontoon Beach as the final leg of the Mopar .25 Midget “Triple Crown Series.”

Hagerstown and Eldora will host the the first two rounds in 2013.

“We feel, after our collective efforts, that the 2013 concept will produce a more viable result for all parties involved,” says USAC Developmental Director Kyle McCain.

This week’s USAC Mopar National Midget Series events are scheduled Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, with the 4th DuPont “Gold Crown Midget Nationals” culminating in a $10,000-to-win final.
