A 20-plus hour drive from the most recent series race in Ventura, Calif. to Tuesday’s USAC NOS Energy Drink Midget National Championship round in Meeker, Okla. brings a pair of drivers currently in the top-four of USAC’s Western States Midget standings, Robert Dalby and Shannon McQueen, to the Heartland of America for “Mid-America Midget Week” July 9-14.

Dalby, of Anaheim, Calif., has been a top contender in recent years on the Western States campaign where he currently resides third in the series standings.  This year, he was the fastest qualifier and finished 2nd at California’s Santa Maria Raceway in April, then finished 3rd in the most recent event in June at Ventura (Calif.) Raceway.

Bakersfield, California’s McQueen is the 2012 USAC Western States Midget champion and has a single career series win coming back in 2007 at California’s Madera Speedway.  This year, she’s finished in the top-ten in all four of her Western States starts: 8th at Bakersfield, 10th at Merced, 5th at Santa Maria and 7th at Ventura and occupies the 4th spot in the standings.

Dalby will see four new tracks on the tour, beginning Tuesday, July 9 at Red Dirt Raceway in Meeker, Okla., Wednesday, July 10 at the Concordia High Banks in Concordia, Kans., and Friday/Saturday, July 12-13 at Jefferson County Speedway in Fairbury, Neb. and finishing up at Sweet Springs Motorsports Complex in Sweet Springs, Mo. on Sunday, July 14.  He did compete in last year’s BC39 at The Dirt Track at IMS.  For McQueen, the weeklong trail of travels takes her to uncharted waters in her first trip to the Midwest for USAC competition.

Tuesday at Red Dirt, the Lucas Oil National Open Wheel 600 Series Non-Wing Micro Sprints are also on the card.  Gates open at 5pm (Central), drivers meeting at 5:45pm, engine heat at 6:15pm and hot laps at 6:30pm.  Adult general admission tickets are $25, high school students and younger are just $5 and pit passes are $35 apiece.  The tailgate section is $100 per carload with one ice chest allowed.  Tailgate area tickets are now available for reserved purchase at www.RedDirtRaceway.com.
