Illinois Tripleheader On Tap For Xtreme Outlaw Midgets

JACKSONVILLE, Ill. — The Xtreme Outlaw Midget Series presented by Toyota will make one more swing through Illinois in mid-September to set the stage for its championship finale.

Three midget showdowns at three different tracks will make up the tripleheader weekend. First will be the series’ return to Jacksonville Speedway on Friday, Sept. 15. Then, back-to-back debuts at Highland Speedway on Saturday, Sept. 16, and Red Hill Raceway on Sunday, Sept. 17.

Last year, Jade Avedisian made history at Jacksonville Speedway, becoming the first female driver to take the checkered flag in a national Midget race. She’ll return as a championship contender this year, currently in a tight points battle with Cannon McIntosh.

She’s also currently tied for the most wins this season (at five) with Zach Daum. 

After the tripleheader weekend in Illinois, the series will travel south for another tripleheader in Oklahoma to close out the season. Port City Raceway on Thursday, Oct. 12, will open the weekend and then be followed by two days at I-44 Riverside Speedway, Friday-Saturday, Oct. 13-14, to crown a champion.
