Annual Fourth of July Rushville Race up next for MTQRL

RUSHVILLE — With a string of four rain outs in a row the Midwest TQ Racing League

presented by Jenmarco.com is hoping for sunshine and blue skies Thursday

at the Rush County Fairgrounds for the annual Fourth of July three-quarter

midget race.

Twenty-seven cars were on hand Wednesday for the rained out Rush County

Fair race and the MTQRL is expecting another strong field of cars this

week. Four-time and defending champion Tate Martz of Rushville will look

for his first win of the year after starting on the tail and finishing

second to Nick Speidel at the MTQRL’s lone event of season on June 15 at

the Montpelier Motor Speedway.

The Rushville race will be the last chance for the MTQRL drivers to

sharpen their racing skills before competing against Tony Stewart on

Tuesday at “Tony Stewart Night at the Bartholomew County Fair” in Columbus.

The schedule of events on Thursday has the pit gate opening at 3 p.m., the

grandstands at 5 p.m., drivers meeting at 5:30 p.m., practice at 6 p.m.

and qualifications at 6:30 p.m. At 7:30 p.m., the night’s racing will

begin with the fastest four qualifiers competing in the Jackson Oil &

Solvents Duel for Fuel, followed by Perfect North Slopes heat races, a

semi feature and a 25-lap feature. The evening will be capped off at 10

p.m. with the Rush County July 4th Fireworks Celebration in the field

north of the Rushville Elementary School.

Adult general admission is $8, children (7-12) are $2, and ages 6 and

under are free. Pit admission is $25 for all ages. Any minors that wish to

enter the pit area must have an Annual Release on file with the MTQRL that

is signed by both parents/guardians and have one parent/guardian in

attendance to sign the Minor Release form.
