Story By: RACE OF CHAMPIONS – NORTH EAST, PA – Race of Champions Late and NYPA TQ Midget Series competitors will have the opportunity to compete on two days of racing, Saturday, September 26 and Sunday, September 27 as part of Presque Isle Downs and Casino, Race of Champions Weekend in North East, Pa., at Lake Erie Speedway.
On Saturday, September 26, the NYPA TQ Midget Series will take part in a 20 lap feature event as a points paying race in the NYPA program.
On Sunday, September 27, the Race of Champions TQ Midget Series will take part in the “Harry Macy Classic” featuring a 29-lap TQ Midget feature. On Sunday, teams may run their NYPA TQ Midget Series tires, however, a Hoosier MG5 right rear tire will be required. Teams wishing to run Hoosier tires on all four corners may do so.
This is an effort to strengthen the TQ Midget program across the region. When the season concludes it is the intent of Race of Champions management to work with Hoosier racing tire to build a new, more efficient TQ Midget tire for all corners of the car.
In addition, Race of Champions and NYPA Series management is proud to announce the introduction of a unique program for the 2021 season, which will be the presented by Printed Image of Buffalo, the official printer for the Race of Champions Modified Series. “The Printed Image Cup” will go to the driver that can earn the best performance in both the Race of Champions and NYPA TQ Series events and the first “Cup” will be handed out at Lake Erie Speedway, based on the best performance by any driver during the two race weekend.
“This is great program to help bring TQ Midget racing together,” stated Rich Zavarella, Sr., the owner of Printed Image of Buffalo. “Our family has long been a part of TQ Midget racing throughout our region, which includes Western New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Canada and we are always looking at ways to make it better.
