    “… those who wish to someday run at Indy …”

    Do young men still dream of winning the Indy 500?

      Traditionally, that would be those coming from quarter midgets, but they may now be dreaming of NASCAR.

      Personally, I’m not sure there’s a need for another support series. This one sound’s like it’s trying to take the place of Formula Atlantic, and any successful graduates would probably wind up in Indycar or United Sportscar.

    Honda is the series sponsor for USAC midgets and quarter midgets also.
    They’ve got both paths covered.

    That looks like a lot of flywheel for a race motor. I assume it’s just a generic “K24” image…
