In November 2018, The Third Turn published its first version of the USAC Western Midgets. COMPLETE race-by-race results are available from 2000-2004 & 2014-present. 1999 is also in our database, though we miss full results to a race in June at Madera. During winter 2018, we will add complete race listings for the history dating back to its inaugural season of 1982. From there, we are hopeful we can add complete information for about 2000 forward.
