The Excitement of the ATQMRA Returns this March for Turkey Derby XLVI

WALL TOWNSHIP, NJ- The Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic American Three Quarter Midget Racing Association (ATQMRA) powered by VP Racing Fuels will return to action on Saturday, March 27th, 2021 at Wall Stadium Speedway for Turkey Derby XLVI.

Due to complications surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, Wall Stadium Speedway officials made the difficult decision to postpone Turkey Derby XLVI this past November. As numbers currently continue to improve in regards to the pandemic across the country, speedway and state officials announced late last week the new dates for the historic motorsports event.

ATQMRA competitors are expected to hit the 1/5th mile inner oval for the first time this spring on both Saturday, March 13th and Sunday, March 14th for open practice. Practice is open to all divisions and competitors who anticipate on competing in Turkey Derby XLVI next month.

While Turkey Derby XLVI will be completed over the course of two weekends, the Hoosier Tire Mid-Atlantic ATQMRA powered by VP Racing Fuels will be the opening feature on Saturday, March 27th leading into the famous 150 lap Tour Modified race. The ATQMRA feature is scheduled for its traditional 30 laps.

Turkey Derby XLVI will not have any implications on the 2021 points championship. The event will be ran as its usual, prestigious non-points exhibition.
The ATQMRA anticipates on releasing their full, 2021 schedule this Friday, on February 25th.
Any team member or driver who anticipates on competing in any race this season and is not already on the mailing list, should contact PR@ATQMRA.COM promptly to receive the most recent updates regarding the ATQMRA.
