The Xtreme Outlaw Midget Series presented by Toyota will make its Kansas debut in May, venturing to Humboldt Speedway and 81 Speedway.
Competing for $4,000 paydays each night, the best dirt Midget drivers in the country will run at Humboldt Speedway on Friday, May 5, and then at 81 Speedway on Saturday, May 6.
Both tracks will be the biggest of the season, so far, for the Xtreme Outlaw Midget, sitting at 3/8 miles in length.
KNOW THE NAME: Jade Avedisian. The 16-year-old, from Clovis, CA, has already made a name for herself in the dirt racing industry, becoming the first female driver to win a national dirt Midget race and currently has the most wins with the Xtreme Outlaw Midgets.
A visit to Humboldt and 81 Speedway will be a good test of how she adapts to tracks she’s never been to before as she chases the Xtreme Outlaw title.
TITLE CONTENDERS: Avedisian currently leads the Series points, but drivers like Kyle Jones, Cannon McIntosh and defending Series champion Zach Daum will use their experience throughout the season to keep the title fight interesting.
Of them, Daum, of Pocahontas, IL, has ran at Humboldt before in 2020 with the national POWRI Midget League. In that race, he finished fourth.
FIRST TIME VISITS: For the majority of the drivers in the field, they’ll be visiting Humboldt Speedway and 81 Speedway for the first time in their careers.
With Xtreme Outlaw coming to both tracks, it’ll be the first time Humboldt has hosted a national dirt Midget series since 2020 – won by Buddy Kofoid – and the first time 81 Speedway has hosted a national dirt Midget series since 2006 – won by Jerry Coons Jr.
