Indoor Auto Racing Tickets
Details of Indoor Auto Racing and the Ticket Luck value
Forget Grand Prix and NASCAR. Indoor Auto Racing has been especially designed to pack in speed, power, and the thrill of neck-to-neck racing and yes the awesome sound of engines in full throttle all under one roof. With large racing circuits such as those of Formula One and even NASCAR, the action only hits you in chunks when the cars are zooming past you at breakneck speed. However, with indoor auto racing that entails so-called midget cars that speed up to an astounding 70 mph, the entire racing racket takes place in front of your eyes the entire time. So claim some cheap Indoor Auto Racing tickets for getting an adrenaline-charged experience courtesy these pint-sized speed sensations.
The "drive" to build bigger and more powerful engines was all the rage in the first half of the century to push the envelope of land speed limits, yet some racecar enthusiasts started going the other way. They attempted to pack in as much thrust as possible in a small chassis that would yield a high power-to-weight ratio, hence the term midget cars. The first official event was held in 1933 at the Los Angeles' Loyola High School Stadium and was organized by the uniquely named Midget Auto Racing Association (MARA). The thrill of watching these mini speed-demons quickly caught on and the phenomenon spread across the Pacific to New Zealand and Australia where they became popular as speed cars.
Midget cars that are the collective heart and brute muscle of the indoor auto racing are rearing to go off the handle, what with packing in 300-400 horsepower for thrusting an average weight of 1,000 pounds. Since the weight is obviously meant to be kept as low as possible, these mini-machines are prone to roll and thus come equipped with roll cages that are an inherent feature of their design. Other safety features such as the five-point harness add another level of safety for the drivers. As the speedy midgets are meant to be raced from 2.5 up to 25 miles, they are not built to exacting specifications as their older cousins that have to endure up to 200 miles of racing in one go.
Initially these midget cars, also dubbed as chimp karts, were driven in tracks that were meant for bicycle racing and sprinting in high school stadiums. However, as the trend took hold and a fan following started developing, purpose-built circuits were constructed. The first such venue was the Gilmore Stadium and soon hundreds of other tracks started to come out of the woodwork all across the nation, most notably Angell Park Speedway in Wisconsin and LA's Ascot Park.
In the past two decades, the Tulsa Expo Center has emerged as the Mecca for all things midget car racing. The Expo Center hosts the annual Chili Bowl Midget Nationals and even attracts race car drivers from the big leagues such as Tony Stewart, Jason Leffler, Josh Wise and Justin Allgaier from NASCAR and Billy Boar and Tom Bigelow from IndyCar. So claim some cheap Indoor Auto Racing tickets for getting your speed freak on.
