Page 22 Pharos-Tribune, Logansport, Indiana, Sunday, March 27, 1988 Sports Modified Midget Car Show Planned Several Modified Midget race cars, belonging to area drivers, will be on display at the Logansport Mall on Friday and Saturday, April 1 and 2. The Logansport Modified Midget Racing Association is sponsoring the show as a preview to its 1988 season, which begins in May. Clubs from three race tracks in the area will be represented. The biggest and oldest of the trio is the U.S. 24 Speedway, home of the Logansport club, located near Lake Cicott on U.S. 24 West. The other two clubs are the Camden Raceway and the Circus City Speedway in Peru. The U.S. 24 Speedway will open its 30th season on Saturday, May 7. Between the three tracks, there will be racing action all summer on Friday nights at Camden, Saturday nights at U.S. 24, and Sunday afternoons in Peru, through the end of September. All three tracks are members of the National Modified Midget Racing Association and have drivers compete in national races from Florida to California. Several area drivers have won national titles in their divisions. The reigning Class B national champion is Alan Paragan, of Kokomo. Cathy Dissinger, who drives at the Logan club, placed fourth in the nation in Class B point standings last year. U.S. 24 Speedway 1987 track champions Dave Luyster in Class B and Tom Corcoran Sr. in Class AA-Single, will have their racers on display at the mall, along with several others. Corcoran finished 10th in the nation in the point standings Cindy Mills/Pharos-Tribune Tom Corcoran Sr. with his 1987 Class AA-Single championship car last year also. Race cars are divided into four classes, only two of which are raced locally, however. Class B is for cars with engines up to 125 cubic centimeters (cc). Class A is for four-stroke, 250cc engines. Class AA-Twin is for two-cylinder two-cycle engines up to 250cc. and Class AA-Single are for one-cylinder 250cc motors. Class B and Class AA-Single racers are the favorites among area drivers, primarily due to the cost factor of building a car in one of the other classes, according to Corcoran, . The U.S. 24 Speedway moved from its home in Headlee, in northeastern White County to its present location in 1958. Corcoran has competed as a driver there for the last 28 years and Blair Luyster has put in 27 years racing there. Luyster is Logansport's only member "of the National Modified Midget Racing Assoication's Hall of Fame. He is a previous vice-president of the national organization (1968-70), has held other regional, district and club-level offices and is currently a member of its board of directors. "Basically, this is a family- involvement type sport," Luyster said. "It's not considered professional racing." Cash purses and trophies offered to the winners, however, keep the drivers as serious as professionals when competing. Corcoran and Luyster have spent many years racing around the little ovals and encourage others to see the cars at the Logansport Mall next weekend and come out and enjoy a night of racing this summer.
