In cooperation with the United States Auto Club (USAC) and the Badger Midget Auto Racing Association (BMARA), the Xtreme Outlaw Midget Series presented by Toyota will conform to the updated chassis specifications, established by USAC, that will go into effect at the start of the 2024 season.

Although no major changes have been made, this effort is to establish a baseline standard for all chassis manufacturers throughout all of Midget racing.

USAC Competition Director Tommie Estes spearheaded the effort to align the series in agreeing to a chassis framework that will be utilized by major Midget racing series moving forward.

“One of the main objectives I’ve taken on in my role with USAC is to create uniformity across all Midget sanctioning bodies and organizations on this joint venture,” Estes stated.

Xtreme Outlaw Midget Series Director Tyler Bachman concurred with Estes and the principles of uniformity.

“The Xtreme Outlaw Midget Series’ commitment to driver safety remains unwavering,” Bachman said. “The cooperation with our fellow racing organizations has been superb, and our sport is already more safe today with this groundbreaking new regulation of chassis manufacturing.”

Though the new chassis standards will not take effect until next season, the USAC, Xtreme Outlaw and Badger Midget organizations will offer sonic testing on current frames to verify tube thickness for the remainder of the 2023 season and upcoming offseason.
