POWRi Lucas Oil Outlaw Midgets Schedule Eight Events For Inaugural Season

MILLSTADT, Ill. (Feb. 14, 2013)-POWRi Racing will sanction the POWRi Lucas
Oil Outlaw Midget Series, which will run its inaugural season in 2013 with
an eight-race schedule in New Hampshire and New York.

Greg Olson of Providence, R.I., led a group of car owners and drivers from
the Northeast who wanted to establish a touring series for Midgets on dirt
and the search led them to POWRi’s Kenny Brown, who co-founded the
organization with Jim Siner in 2005.

“We had been looking for a sanctioning body for about six months before we
met Kenny Brown and after a few meetings and email conversations with
them, it was clear to all of us that POWRi was who we wanted to be associated
with,” Olson said. “Some of the benefits that Kenny offered us we couldn’t
even get from some of the local and national clubs we talked to.

“Starting a new division has more than its fair share of headaches like
liability insurance, secondary medical insurance, rules, whether to be an
LLC., Inc., or a club and they are just a few of the hurdles we have to clear.
Having POWRi help with some of those issues is worth its weight in gold.”

Olson’s group began racing five years ago at closed Whip City Speedway in
Westfield, Mass., and earned the “Outlaw” designation because it ran
without a sanctioning body.

The Midget chassis will run under POWRi technical rules and engines will
be Ford Focus or GM Ecotec and Quad-4. Racing procedures will adhere to the
POWRi rulebook.

“We’ve been at this a few years and we’ve got a lot of support from our
tracks and teams to form a series,” Olson said. “We’re very happy to be
part of POWRi. This is a big move for us. We’re starting with eight races
because many of our drivers compete in other Midget and Sprint divisions and it
will allow them to continue to run in them.”

POWRi also sanctions the POWRi Lucas Oil National Midget Series, POWRi
Speedway Motors 600cc Outlaw Micro Series, POWRi Lucas Oil West Series, POWRi
Lucas Oil Australian Speedcar Super Series and POWRi Lucas Oil New Zealand
Midget Super Series. POWRi also is the promoter at Angell Park Speedway in
Sun Prairie, Wis.

“We’re excited that Greg’s group has decided to align itself with POWRi,”
Brown said. “One of our missions is to grow Midget racing and a touring
series on dirt in this region of the country is a large step forward to
doing it.”
