The United States Speed Association (USSA) and the Mel Kenyon Midget Series have been purchased by Brad Hayes Racing. Current USSA partners—Don Kenyon, Eric Bunn, and Norm Shields—will complete the 2021 racing schedule through the season banquet. Brad Hayes and his group will officially take control of the sanctioning body and series on Monday, November 8.
USSA was incorporated in late 2009 and has since sanctioned 250 races with competitors taking home a total of $1,485,760.
“Even though the operation of USSA has changed hands, Mel and I will still be available in whatever capacity we are needed,” said Don Kenyon, who was served as president of USSA since its inception and is the brother of Mel Kenyon.
“We are looking forward to working with all current and new teams in the series. We will maintain the history of what Mel and Don have done for the sport, while growing the series with a fresh energy for the 2022 season,” Brad Hayes said.
