*** Attention THQMA members due to the fair going on during the July membership meeting we will have to cancel the meeting as the building will be occupied.

First race at the temporary facility tomorrow. Sign ins are 11:00 am – 12:00 pm. Remember to bring your race receivers and enter the track off Union Street by Bogeys.

No memberships will be taken during sign ins.

Reminder contact Jeremy Urbain to pickup the Raceceivers that were ordered there are several members that haven’t picked up yet, you will need these!

Attached are two photos from today. Soft walls arrived Thursday afternoon and are now in place.  Thanks to Jeremy for locating a scoring tower down near Jasonville and thanks to Jeremy and Denny for hauling it to the temporary track.  Best of all, it was given to us.  With a few minor alterations it will work great for the ladies.  We were also “loaned” two sets of aluminum bleachers from the same place with the hopes we can negotiate a real good deal for later down the road.  Thanks to Denny, Jeremy, Scott and Scott’s boy for helping get the bleachers loaded and hauled.  Also, Thank you to Travis and Prox Lawn Care for mowing our area.
With the major help from my trustees (Greg, David, Travis and Derek) we are pretty much ready for next weekend.  If you have not seen the track up close and personal, I think you will be surprised.  This will be a fun season for the kids and also the parents.  Again, many thanks go to Denny for leading the charge to see this project through and to the many that helped make it possible.
The upcoming week we will tie up all the loose ends and get the equipment we need to start on next Saturday for test and tune.  Remember we will be starting this season with some new club racing rules and race receivers.  Also, Please remember we are all VOLUNTEERS and we are doing our very best for your children and ours.
Additional information will follow and will be posted on our official Facebook page, website, group email and text messaging systems.
Start time will be at 12:00 EST. curfew is 8PM at the temporary track.
Lets have FUN!

What is THQMA?

Terre Haute Quarter Midget Racing Association (THQMA)

Did you know that right here in Terre Haute we have one of the oldest race organizations focused exclusively on children ages 5-16?  The Terre Haute Quarter Midget Association is fully operated by volunteers and we have been enriching the lives of children and families for almost 60 years.  Quarter Midget Racing was started to develop sportsmanship in the children while also providing a family oriented racing activity. In recognition of the drivers, trophies are awarded at Regional, State, and National events. No cash prizes are awarded.

History has proven that the time our youth spend in this program make them more responsible, more confident and more focused on a job well done, traits and experiences that will serve them in other aspects of their lives. Quarter Midget racing is not a “drop off your kid” kind of sport, but an involved family sport.  Few other sports permit all members of the family to participate. The kids do the driving while other family members serve as pit crews, chief mechanics, scorers, timekeepers, and operators of concession stand or novelty booths.

Our mission at THQMA is to:

  • Provide youth with organized competition in a safe environment
  • Bring our youth closer together through common interest in sportsmanship and competition
  • Develop confidence,  self-reliance , self-value and leadership skills
  • Help them understand the benefit and reward of hard work
  • Instill the values of education and encourage the players to maintain satisfactory grades in school
  • Acquaint the drivers with the fundamentals of driving and racing
  • Teach sportsmanship, the spirit of competition, discipline and love of the sport
  • Great Racing
  • Excitement
  • Family Environment
  • Sportsmanship
