Inside small but mighty three-quarter midget racing cars, some of the Northeast’s top drivers throttle and bump in multiple thrilling races. At 100-level seats, Groupon ticketholders will hover right above the oval track, hearing the tires squeal when drivers floor the gas pedal and seeing the engines smoke when they accidentally fill gas tanks with barbecue sauce. Tucked inside a reinforced roll rack, drivers zoom by at 70 miles per hour, whipping around turns and barreling down straightaways in cars that amount to not much more than engine blocks on wheels. Throughout the roughly two-hour competition, several heats and races keep the intensity perpetually percolating. In feature races, up to 26 cars can bang and bash into the walls and into each other over the course of 40 laps. Winners take home cash prizes, respect from their fellow drivers, and a pass from the mayor allowing them to drive inside malls.
