HOW TO JOIN
The best way to get started is to first read the Novice Program information. These handy guides tell you what happens during novice training, on a typical race day and more. Come to a club meeting. Our club meetings are held each month at the ice cream parlor at Alpenrose Dairy. Bring your kids to the meeting so they can meet the other kids! Talk to the parents. Can’t come to a club meeting? Come to the racetrack on any race day. Race day admission is always free. Talk to the families. No race day scheduled? Come to the track on a Saturday or Sunday any time from March until October and you will most likely find someone practicing at the track! Talk to them.
When you are ready to join contact us and we will get you the necessary paperwork and set you up for novice training. You will need to provide a copy of your child’s birth certificate and a 1×1 passport style photo of yourself for your membership badge. Even if you missed the novice classes at the beginning of the season, we can provide personal novice training (included with membership) at the time you join.
Membership for the family (two handlers and one driver) is $150 this year and INCLUDES the cost of insurance and membership in the National QMA organization in addition to club membership. Each additional driver is only $5. With your membership you are able to drive at ANY QMA racetrack in the country. Our racetrack is always open for member practice (except during posted hours). Don’t have a car or don’t want to buy one at first? You can RENT a car! Ask for details.
While racing can be expensive you don’t have to be super rich to participate. We have members from all parts of the community. Some have trailers and some use their pickup. Some have tons of equipment and some have a toolbox of basic screwdrivers and wrenches. Some have gazillion tires and some have two sets of right side tires for the whole season. While many members travel to all the race tracks in our region and all the Grands races across the nation, some members choose only to run the club races. You are not required or obligated to run any races. For the most part, it’s really up to YOU how much money you spend on this sport. Don’t let it scare you. There are always people to lend you expertise or a tool to use or even car parts.
PQMRA offers your child the opportunity to gear up, buckle up and drive a quarter midget race car before requiring any membership fees or purchase of equipment so your child can test his/her interests without obligation. Test Drive Days are held throughout the year for a fee of $20/day. PQMRA encourages your entire family to take time to participate in this opportunity and to check out one of our many local and regional races throughout the year.
For more information on how your child can step into the inspiring sport of quarter midget racing, or to set up a test drive, contact us.
