Baker Racing Engines Returns as Rumble Quarter Midget Sponsor

Popular McClure, OH Engine Builder to Sponsor ‘On the Gas’ Award

FORT WAYNE, IND (Nov 20, 2022) – Baker Racing Engines (BRE) is one of the most recognized names in Quarter Midget racing with their focus on quality rather than quantity and prides themselves on the race results of their customers. Their presence at this year’s 24th running of the Rumble in Fort Wayne presented by Jason Dietsch Trailer Sales will return as they sponsor the Quarter Midget ‘On the Gas’ Award December 30 and 31.

Each day, BRE owner Javin Mendoza will reward one Quarter Midget team with a $50 gasoline gift certificate, based upon a drawing at the pre-race driver meeting.

“The Rumble in Fort Wayne is all about discipline and precision; two of the key components to our operation,” stated Mendoza.  “The Rumble attracts the best of the best and it takes a lot of effort to get into the winner’s circle. Teams come from great distances to support the race and we look forward to giving a couple of the teams a small reward for their dedication.”

Quarter Midget racing at the Rumble is unique and challenging. The biggest difference is the track size; a typical track size for Quarter Midget racing is 1/20 of a mile while the purpose-built concrete oval inside of Fort Wayne’s Allen County War Memorial Coliseum measures 1/6 of a mile, nearly 3-times larger. With the amplified size comes increased speeds that require a completely different driving style and chassis set-up.

Each day of the Rumble in Fort Wayne features a full program (qualifying, 2 rounds of heats and an A-Main) for the six classes of Quarter Midget racing being offered and will join the full-sized Midgets, Winged and Non-Winged 600cc Midgets and Go-Karts in the 24th presentation of the annual indoor racing event.

Advance tickets are available through any Ticketmaster outlet or at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum box office, and on race-day.
