ATQMRA Champs Look for Indoor Auto Racing Success

Joey Bailey aboard the Boyd No. 1B
Veteran TQ Midget car owners Lenny and Donna Boyd proved they had found their driver last year when Joey Bailey got comfortable in his yellow No. 1B.

After going to the rear late in the series finale, the multi-time champion of the outdoor ATQMRA series impressively marched back forward to finish fifth, rewarding him with fourth in the final series point standings.

The 25-year-old Monroe Township, N.J. driver is now comfortable in the close action of indoor racing and ready to take his game to the next level.

Will Ryan Tidman Bring his Outdoor Streak Inside?
Another one to keep an eye on is Ryan Tidman. The Southampton, Pa. driver really got going late in the season on the ATQMRA outdoor circuit, ending the campaign with an impressive victory at Wall Stadium’s Turkey Derby.

Returning in Rick Tolerico’s No. 83, this veteran of indoor competition could be primed for a first indoor victory.

Good seats remain for the Allentown race weekend. They can be purchased online through a link on the show website, or at the box office on the day of the event. For those who cannot attend, the event will be available on DTD Pay-Per-View for $64.99 for the weekend or $29.99 for Friday and $39.99 for Saturday.

In Allentown on Friday night racing begins at 7:30 PM with the TQ Midgets headlined in three Ironton Auto Body A-Qualifier main events. The top three in each event locks into Saturday’s main event and the Dash.   The winner of each of these races will now receive $1,000 thanks to Ironton Auto Body and the Dash winner another $500!

Saturday’s events, sponsored by Future Homes, begin with FAN FEST when the doors open at 5 PM. Racing begins at 7 PM headlined by a 40-lap TQ Midget feature. The Champ Karts and Slingshots run complete shows with features on both nights.

After Allentown the series then moves to Atlantic City for the 20th year under Len Sammons Productions.  The NAPA KNOW HOW weekend will feature a first ever “Double Down” schedule, with two Gambler’s Classic races for the TQ Midgets being held, one on Friday night and another on Saturday night.
