1 MONTH ALERT: Xtreme Outlaw Midgets to Make Farmer City Debut March 31-April 1

Xtreme Outlaw Midgets at Davenport Speedway

The Xtreme Outlaw Midget Series presented by Toyota is bringing the best dirt Midget drivers in the country to Illinois during the Illini 100 weekend at Farmer City Raceway, March 31-April 1.

The doubleheader visit will mark the Series’ debut at the 1/4-mile track and the first time Farmer City has ever hosted a national Midget series.

Friday and Saturday’s Features will pay $4,000 to win. There will be a practice for drivers on Thursday, March 30. The Series will also be accompanied by the World of Outlaws CASE Construction Equipment Late Model Series each night.

For the Xtreme Outlaw Midgets, the Illini 100 will be its second big event of the year and second stop in Illinois, after kicking off its 2023 season at the Southern Illinois Center in Du Quoin, IL, March 10-11.


Early Storylines:

DAUM’S TITLE DEFENSE: Zach Daum, the inaugural Xtreme Outlaw Midget champion, returns to defend his title, but this year with his own equipment. With sponsorship from Kiwi Landscaping and Rockwell Security, Daum will be his own boss and race in his own equipment – built right in his 5d Speed Shop in Greenville, IL.

His Xtreme Outlaw title last year was his first national championship since 2016. He picked up one win with the Series at Port City Raceway. He has five starts at the Southern Illinois Center with a career best finish of fourth.

WINNING WAYS: Jade Avedisian made history in two ways with the Xtreme Outlaw Midget Series last year, becoming the first female driver to take the checkered flag in a national dirt Midget race and becoming the Series’ winningest driver with two wins. Those victories came at Illinois’ ¼-mile Jacksonville Speedway and the 2022 season finale at I-44 Riverside Speedway in Oklahoma.

She’ll carry that momentum into the new season with a new team as she joins Keith Kunz Motorsports to chase the Xtreme Outlaw championship.

XTREME CONTENDERS: The field of full-time contenders for the 2023 Xtreme Outlaw Midget Series presented by Toyota championship is rapidly growing. Along with Daum and Avedisian, Kyle Jones, Chase McDermand, Gavin Miller, Ethan Mitchell and Cannon McIntosh have announced they’ll be chasing the title – with more still to come.

Of them, Avedisian, Daum, McDermand and McIntosh picked up wins during the Xtreme Outlaw’s inaugural season in 2022.
