Since 2009, the United States Auto Club has sanctioned .25 (quarter-midget) racing. Drivers can start as young as age five and clubs can be found throughout the country. The USAC NatIonal .25 Midget Series offers drivers the ability to compete for a Pavement or Dirt National Championship throughout the season.

Quarter midgets are 1/4 the size of an actual full size midget racer and race on a 1/20th mile-long track. With approximately 46 USAC.25 clubs located nationwide, thousands of kids ages five and up, along with their families, participate in USAC-sanctioned races. Almost every weekend, there is a local, regional or national USAC.25 sanctioned race taking place in the United States. USAC.25 was founded on three basic principles; safety, cost and fun. The sport encourages and promotes complete family involvement.

Some notable NASCAR and INDYCAR graduates of quarter midget racing include Jeff Gordon, Joey Logano, Ryan Newman, Ed Carpenter, Sarah Fisher and Alex Bowman. Even the legendary A.J. Foyt got his start in a quarter midget. More information can be found at
