INDIANAPOLIS – One brand new date has been added to the 2013 USAC racing calendar while another has been removed.
The fourth Chad McDaniel Memorial midget race at Solomon Valley Raceway in Beloit, Kan., joins the USAC National Dirt Midget calendar on July 30. The Beloit Midget race joins a week of activity filled with USAC National Midget racing, preceding the Aug. 1-3 Belleville Midget Nationals at the half-mile North Central Kansas Free Fair oval.
The race at the quarter-mile dirt Beloit oval honors the memory of the late Concordia, Kan., driver who lost his life while competing in a 2009 USAC National Midget race at Knoxville, Iowa.
The race will be the first for USAC at the Beloit oval, where past Chad McDaniel Memorial winners have included Brad Kuhn (2010) and Scott Hatton (2012). Rain forced the 2011 cancellation.
The July 7 Traxxas USAC Silver Crown race at The Milwaukee Mile in West Allis, Wis., has been removed due to scheduling conflicts at the facility.
