2011 marks the 16th anniversary of the Miniature Motorsports
Racing Association. We promote hundreds of races throughout North
America for 1/2 scale minicup racecars and 2/3 scale Baby Grand racecars.
Starting at 8 years old, our racers hone their skills in front of hundreds of thousands of fans each year working their way to racing stardom.
Our 3 oval track divisions provide a complete driver development program
that prepares young racers for professional level racing. MMRA
graduates include 1997 Future Stars champion Shelby Howard who went on to become the
youngest winner in ARCA ReMax competition, and 2002 PRO Division champion
Carl Edwards who has already reached the Sprint Cup series.
The journey starts with our Future Stars of Racing. This class provides the perfect "next step" for go-kart or
quarter midget racers who are looking to move up. Future Stars minicup
racecars look like the Nextel Cup cars you see
on television, but they are just 1/2 the size. They are inexpensive,
easy to maintain, and place young racers on many of the same saturday night
short tracks where their heroes got their start.

Future Stars of Racing program.
MMRA's PRO Division provides an opportunity for
racers who want real horsepower underfoot. The Baby Grand stockcars in
this division are powered by the same 4 cylinder Yamaha motorcycle engines
as legends cars. They have 5 speed gearboxes and quick-change rearends
just like a late model stockcar. With a 10:1 horsepower to weight
ratio, these cars are extremely fast and truly teach racers how to handle
power and speed. With sufficient proven experience, racers as young as
12 years old can compete at this level. Success here is a true
indicator of talent and prepares drivers for the step to professional
Over the years, the MMRA has
racked up many significant achievements including:
* Creating the Future Stars of Racing™ program to help young
racers get their start
* Bringing minicup racing to national television in 1998 on
* Sanctioning hundreds of races each year stretching from Florida to
* Signing Tony Stewart as a national spokesperson for the Future Stars before his
* Promoting our 2002 Nationals event with support from the U.S. Air
Force and Honda Engines
* Adding the PRO Division to make a complete "driver development"
program for young racers
Many racing sanctioning bodies cater to the most successful
teams in their group and try to keep them happy. MMRA will instead
focus on the fans in the stands and always try to develop programs to make
it easy for them to come join the fun. MMRA racing has the potential to become the most popular form of short track
racing in the country and fans love the 3 and 4 wide racing in the turns.
We also believe our Future Stars of Racing program is a unique
opportunity to identify the stars of tomorrow and teach all participants the
joy of competition and teamwork. We will work to bring this sport to racetracks around the country and into the
living rooms of race fans everywhere. Come join the fun - Get out of the stands and
into the action!!
