USAC, NASCAR Announce New Partnership in Youth Racing

In an effort to continue to grow the motorsports community and offer unique opportunities to kids and families, USAC and NASCAR have teamed up to form the NASCAR Youth Series, which will debut as the quarter midget series brand starting in 2023. This new series will be recognized as a NASCAR Regional Series and will utilize single cylinder engines manufactured by Honda and Briggs & Stratton. 

Since 2018, NASCAR has welcomed the former USAC.25 Series at numerous venues, including Daytona International Speedway, Texas Motor Speedway, Phoenix Raceway, Darlington Raceway, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and Charlotte Motor Speedway. 

“When we started the USAC.25 Series in 2009, our goal was to provide a safe, fun, yet competitive youth racing series that provided families with a way to create lasting memories,” said Kevin Miller, USAC President. “Through the years, the series has grown tremendously. We are proud of our alumni that began their racing careers in the USAC.25 Series and have continued to succeed professionally in the NASCAR ranks. Since we began incorporating NASCAR races on our schedule, families across the country have been able to experience amazing opportunities. We realize that partnering with NASCAR to create the NASCAR Youth Series will provide even more unique experiences and opportunities for our families.”

The NASCAR Youth Series’ nine-race national championship schedule will be comprised of seven pavement and two dirt races at temporarily constructed race tracks at the following venues:
