CORONA, CA (May 21, 2018) - On Tuesday, June 5th, the 35 week long POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget League series, featuring some of the closest, quickest, most competitive oval track racing on television, makes its debut on MAVTV Motorsports Network.
Air day/time - Tuesday, June 5 at 1:30pm ET, with same day repeat at 4:30pm ET. Note: each show will repeat-air two days later on Thursdays at 12:00pm ET and 3:00pm ET.
The POWRi Lucas Oil National Midgets are simply the quickest cars on the clay, with every lap of every race up for grabs. These 900-pound cars are putting out 350 horsepower and racing on clay tracks from 1/5-mile bullrings to high banked half miles.
"We re excited about airing the new POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget racing series on MAVTV,"said Jason Patison, Programming Director for MAVTV. "Our viewers have been requesting more midget racing on the network ever since we lit up their screens with the annual Chili Bowl. This is grass-roots racing at its best."
Short wheelbases, but big on power, POWRi National Midgets, almost never have all four wheels on the dirt at the same time, and the drivers work every bit as hard on the straights as in the turns, foot down and fighting the track, the tires, and 25 or more other drivers who want to lead ... NOW.
