During that time land was found at the Plainfield Park and a new track was built. The club raced for some time in Plainfield until noise concerns halted racing.
It was then that Marvin Zink, a member at the time, donated land on the near eastside to build yet another track. Then, after Mr. Zink’s passing in the early 1990’s, Indianapolis Motor Speedway mogul Tony George recognized the club needed a permanent home, and commissioned the Speedway to construct the famed Mini-Indy Quarter Midget track at the Indiana State Fairgrounds.
The club was re-named Central Indiana Quarter Midget Association (CIQMA), and has been racing at what is considered one of the best Quarter Midget racing facilities in the United States ever since. We are volunteer organization, which means all of our members are required to volunteer time and talents each race day to ensure our events are fair, competitive, fun- and most of all- safe.
Racing at Mini-Indy
In the mid 1950’s, the Quarter Midget Club was formed in Indianapolis, Indiana. The club raced at the Westlake facility for several years, until the State commissioned the land where the track was located for construction of I-465. This move forced the club to relocate racing to Eagledale Plaza, where the club raced for several more years.here.

Mini Indy Speedway is located just northeast of downtown Indianapolis at the historic Indiana State Fair Grounds. Mini Indy is a concrete track that is built to similar standards to the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Mini Indy has wide banking of 7 degrees on the straights and 9 degrees in the corners just like IMS.
Our walls are one of the safest in the country constructed of polymer sheets and reinforced with rubber tires. That makes it easy on those little drivers and easy on dad's wallet!
Don't forget to kiss those bricks! At the time of construction the Indianapolis Motor Speedway donated the first brick in the middle of our start finish line! These bricks were sold and engraved with the name of other supporters including Indiana's own Jeff Gordon! We take pride in our facility!
Mini Indy offers a covered staging area to keep the sun off those drivers waiting to race. We have a large hot chute for handler and driver safety! Our track also includes a top notch air conditioned tower with all the amenities of home and plenty of room for the scorers and track officials! Don't forget to swing by our fully equipped concession stand for something great to eat!
