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
