In December 2017, The Third Turn published its first version of the USAC Midgets. COMPLETE race-by-race results are available from 2005 forwards with race listings available from the series inception in 1956 to 2004.

Our next goals are to try to backfill complete races back to about 1999 using Internet Archive tools and then slowly review newsprint articles to piece together as many complete race results as possible.
