In a previous article, I discussed the formation of the Legend Car Series and how the Legend Cars might be a good starting option for those that wanted to begin a racing career. The earliest recorded events took place on the east coast. The idea behind the cars was simple, build a car close in size to a midget, install a motorcycle engine, and go race on a clay oval track. About this same time, this type of race car was also getting started here in Wisconsin.
They were the original home-built race cars and their garage builders made use of every available automotive and sometimes non-automotive part they could use. Some cars were even powered by outboard boat motors. Post-World War II, the Quarter midgets appeared much as their full-scale counterparts did, as home-builts. Since that time, the Quarter midgets have evolved into modern race cars parallel to the full-size Midgets.
We write a lot about making strong, end use parts with the Mark Two. Quarter Midgets of America is a organization that facilitates short track youth racing around the United States. The uniquely shaped cars are derived from Midget race cars, which are short track vehicles with very high power to weight ratios. There are many racing classes based on engine size and age, but most critical aspects of the car are consistent between racers.
