Toni Breidinger Madera Speedway USAC HPD Midget
Toni demonstrates how it feels to be behind the wheel of a USAC HPD Midget during a short heat race. Toni gets a good start but her competitor is right behind her waiting for the slightest slip or mistake. A single lap around this 1/3 mile oval takes less than 15 seconds so the driver is almost constantly on the edge of tire adhesion. If you watch closely you will see the left front tire lift off the track a few times at corner exit. This is not the best race setup but it looks cool at the track when the left front tire come off the ground!
