ATLANTIC CITY, NJ – The Indoor Auto Racing Series returns to Jim Whelen Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City on Friday, January 26th and Saturday, January 27th.
Tickets for both nights of the NAPA AUTO PARTS weekend will go on sale to the public on Thursday, September 14th. Special pre-sale offers will be made available to previous customers leading up to the public on sale date.
As was the case this past January, the headline TQ Midgets will compete in two complete point paying shows of qualifying and feature events both nights. Saturday’s main event will feature the 22nd running of the Gambler’s Classic. On Friday a new event, the Black Jack 21, will be held.
Anthony Sesely of Matawan, N.J. was the Saturday night winner of the 21st Gambler’s Classic this past January, becoming the only four time winner of the event. On Friday night, Andy Jankowiak of Tonawanda, N.Y. won the 20th annual event that was not held in 2021 due to Covid-19 gathering restrictions. Both drivers are expected to return to the TQ Midget Concrete Series again in hopes of adding to their impressive indoor winning resume.
“The response from the fans and racers for our Double-Down TQ Midget feature weekend this year was heard loud and clear,” said Indoor Racing Series promoter Len Sammons.
“The Gambler’s Classic is a special event and there should only be one winner that takes home that coveted Cup each year on Saturday night,” added Sammons. “However, we are starting a new tradition on Friday night this year with the 1st Annual Black Jack 21 for the TQ Midgets.”
As in the past, the Slingshots and Champ Karts will continue to be a part of all of the Concrete Series events. Returning to Atlantic City for a second year will be the Wingless 600cc Micro Sprints. These three divisions will again qualify on Friday and compete in a feature only on Saturday night.
The Concrete Series will kick off on January 5 and 6 with the 9th running of the Ironton Global sponsored Allentown Indoor Races at the PPL Center. Tickets for the Allentown event will go on sale at a date to be announced.
For the first time ever in Allentown, three feature events will be held both nights for the TQ Midgets, Slingshots and Champ Karts. Friday’s TQ Midget car headliner will go over the distance of 30 laps with Saturday’s main event 40 laps.
Tickets for the 5th Annual BELFOR East Coast Indoor Dirt Nationals at the CURE Insurance Arena in Trenton, N.J. on Friday and Saturday, February 23rd and 24th will go on sale at a later date.
