The Xtreme Outlaw Sprint Car Series presented by Low-E Insulation had its turn in February, now the history-making is in the hands of the Xtreme Outlaw Midget Series presented by Toyota Racing this weekend.
In conjunction with the POWRi Midgets, the new Series will come to life this Friday and Saturday, April 1-2 at Farmer City (IL) Raceway’s iconic Illini 100. The mighty midgets will battle for a pair of $4,000-to-win Features to kickstart the 12-race season on DIRTVision.
A fleet of 12 teams and drivers have already committed to chasing the inaugural Xtreme Outlaw Midget Series championship in 2022. They’ll be joined by a handful of POWRi regulars and Illini invaders this weekend at Farmer City’s 1/4-mile bullring.
The inclusion of the World of Outlaws CASE Construction Equipment Late Model Series in this weekend’s program makes it the best of both worlds for open-wheel and fendered fans alike. Fans can BUY TICKETS HERE to secure a seat for this historic happening.
