USAC Quarter Midgets joing 2020 Grand Prix
A new national race series will debut as part of the 2020 Grand Prix of Portland — United States Auto Club Quarter Midgets.
The USAC dirt and pavement series features drivers ages 5 and up looking to climb the ladder as the next stars of their sport. They will take the green flag at Portland International Raceway for the first time on a temporary constructed 1/20th mile-long course in one of the paddocks.
"We're excited to bring another feature to the fans and festival-goers to the Grand Prix of Portland. With the USAC quarter midgets added to the schedule, race fans from Portland and across the Pacific Northwest will have seven different racing series to enjoy in 2020," said Kim Green, co-owner, chairman and CEO of Green Savoree Racing Promotions, organizers of the Grand Prix of Portland. "It's an exceptional experience for the whole family. Kids 12 and under get free general admission and access to the paddock to see the cars up close and interact with the drivers."
The Grand Prix is scheduled for Labor Day weekend, Sept. 4 to 6, 2020. The highlight is Sunday's NTT IndyCar race, which will be the next-to-last race of the season. The weekend schedule is rounded out with the three open-wheel development series from the Road to Indy Presented by Cooper Tires, the Global Mazda MX-5 Cup, and the return of the SPEED Energy Stadium SUPER Trucks, which first debuted at this year's event.
