Fairfield, Illinois (6/25/2021)... The Puremax Racing Oil HART Non-Wing Micro Series presented by EMi hasn't raced since March 13th at the Midwest Winter Nationals in the Southern Illinois Center. After having their last four races postponed or canceled due to rain, the HART Non-Wing Micros are busier than they ever have been with seven races in the next nine days.
The first two races of the stretch take place this weekend at Coles County Speedway tonight and then at Southern Illinois Raceway on Saturday. This is the first of two M (Mattoon, IL) & M (Marion, IL) weekends of the year for the series.
Last year Tres Mehler (Oblong, IL) and 2020 Series Champion Jake Cheatham (Bethalto, IL) picked up wins at the nation's oldest micro sprint track. At the turn of the new year, Coles County rebranded and reconfigured the track flattening and adding a guardrail on the backstretch. Daniel Robinson will attempt to figure out the new layout and hold onto his points lead.
Then the second half of M&M Weekend number one belongs to the Highbanks of Southern Illinois Raceway. Joe B. Miller (Millersville, MO) and LeRoy Carley (Cunningham, TN) both picked up their first career HART Series wins last year at Marion.
The lone M&M Weekend last year did not disappoint, and nothing less is expected this year as the Puremax HART Non-Wing Micro Series continues to add regulars.
After a pair of races in Illinois, the HART Micros head east to Indiana for the Hoosier Dirt Cup. The Hoosier Dirt Cup features five straight days of racing for $500 to Win and $75 to Start at Indiana's best micro sprint tracks, June 29th through July 3rd. Restrictor micros will also be in attendance all five nights.
The action kicks off at Circus City Speedway in Peru, Indiana. The Puremax Racing Oil HART Non-Wing Micros presented by EMi headline night one with Restrictors, Senior Non-Wing Micros, and Jr. The HART Series made its debut in Indiana last year at Circus City. Jake Moore and Kole Kirkman were both able to come away with wins. Hot Laps start at 6:15 P.M. (EST)
Night two belongs to the Rush County Fairgrounds in Rushville, Indiana. Hot Laps begin at 6:30 P.M. (EST) with Restrictors, Pure Stocks, and Hornets on tab alongside the HART Non-Wing Micros.
Plymouth Speedway is the third stop of the tour on the July 1st. The USAC National Sprint Cars will be on top of the card with HART and Restrictors. Night three will be broadcasted live on FloRacing.
The final track and final two nights are US 24 Speedway's in Logansport, IN. The Puremax Racing Oil HART Non-Wing Micro Series presented by EMi and Restrictors will crown a Hoosier Dirt Cup champion. Both nights at US 24 will have full nights of racing. Other than HART and Restrictors; Senior Non-Wing, Junior Sprints, A-Class Wing, and Non-Wing will also be racing.
Daniel Robinson currently leads the Puremax Racing Oil HART Non-Wing Micro Series points standings by 53 points over reigning Jake Cheatham. Expect Kole Kirkman to be a threat during the Hoosier Dirt Cup. Kirkman won one of two HART races in Indiana last year and has already picked up two HART Series wins this year at the Midwest Winter Nationals. After the Hoosier Dirt Cup the next Heartland Auto Tour Race is on July 9th at Tri-City Speedway.
