Indianapolis, Dec. 9, 2011: Twenty-four preliminary dates have been released for USAC’s 2012 Mopar National Midget Series, with “traditional events” spanning the calendar.

Ace Speedway in Altamahaw, N.C., which hosted USAC Ford Focus events in 2011, joins the Mopar National Midget calendar in 2012, offering series openers in late-March, while the series concludes with the 72nd running of the “Turkey Night Grand Prix” at Toyota Speedway at Irwindale, Calif. in November.

In between, highlights include the “Hut Hundred” at Haubstadt, Ind., the “Night Before the 500” in Indianapolis, Ind., Indiana Midget Week, the “4-Crown Nationals” at Rossburg, Ohio and the “Gold Crown Nationals” at Pontoon Beach, Ill.

New to the calendar is the two-night “Plymouth Palooza” at Plymouth (Ind.) Speedway in July with the first night’s events on the track’s 1/3-mile paved oval and the following night’s races on a newly-constructed dirt oval inside the paved oval.
