Southern States Midget Series
Founder and President Wayne Davis had a vision to bring affordable midget racing to the south. He did not know in 2010 when Division II midget racing was established that it would spread throughout the nation. Division 2 midgets are full size midgets just like their counterpart "National" midgets execept without the $40,000.00 engine price tag that comes with running up front in a national car. D-2 cars are powered by stock block/stock head configeration with 1000cc motorcycle engines also used. Midget racing has been a staple of racing long before the stock car era. As of today there are 7 other series that has taking the same rules in Indiana, Ohio, Illinios, Missouri, Texas, New England, New York. The Lucas Oil Southern States D-2 series also allows the 600 mini sprints to race with them since no one in the south runs them without a wing.
There are several different engines to be used with D-2. Ford Focus, Chevy Ecotec, Honda K-24, Pontiac Quad 4, Ford DuraTec and 1000cc motorcycle engine. These engines cost from $1500 salavage yard engine up to about $7500 race ready which includes brand new oil pan/electronics/headers/fuel system...drop in and go race...chassis you can get used from $4000-$8000 and new $12000 to $15000. Used complete cars will go $5000-$10500 race ready.

This rule was in place for the 5 races last year. I am in the process of any new rule changes for the next 3 years and want to make sure this is an option. Once I write it in I do not change the rules for 3 years and the reason for that is anyone that wants to buy a car and race with us they know that this package is good for 3 years.
Please PM me, text me or call before you make the trip with your engine combo to make sure it is legal.
