In 1993, while taking some well-deserved downtime in their hotel room in Daytona Beach, Florida, during Speedweeks, the Vercauteren brothers came up with a game-changing idea – to create a new asphalt series for stock car racing. Their concept involved taking the popular steel-bodied grand national cars that had dominated the dirt tracks at Chilton Fairgrounds and introducing them onto paved tracks across the Midwest.  The Mid-American Stock Car Series was born.


The first two years of the series, in 1993 and 1994, saw the Vercauterens secure dates at prestigious tracks such as the Milwaukee Mile and Road America in Elkhart Lake, cementing the series' reputation as a formidable force in the racing scene. The Mid-American series morphed into a support class for the ARTGO Challenge Series before expanding into a traveling Supertruck Series, the Midwest Super Truck Series, in 1995.


For over 30 years, the Mid-Am Racing Series has been providing an exceptional racing experience to drivers and fans alike. From the iconic tracks we tour to the diverse racing experiences we offer, we are proud to be part of a passionate and thriving community of racing fans. As we continue to grow, we remain committed to our core values of quality, diversity, and transparency. We know what makes for a great racing experience - come join us for some great racing and leave with lifelong memories.
