BERLANGA DENTURES SPONSORS QUARTER MIDGET RACER LANDON SPROLES

Quarter Midget Racing is a family sport that involves racing on oval tracks, about 1/20 of a mile, in specially prepared cars for children ages 5 to 16 years of age. Started in the late 60’s, the Little Wheels Quarter Midget Association, held its first races in parking lots like the B&I and Fred Meyer. They opened their location in Graham, WA in the early 70’s, and are still there today.

Joey Berlanga raced when he was a boy, and the sport has always held a special place in his heart. When Joey heard that Landon Sproles, whose mother, Laura Sproles, works for the Tacoma Dental Lab, he knew that this would be a great way to help this ambitious young man participate in this great sport.

Midget racing safety features include full roll cages, multi-point seat harnesses, full face helmets, and additional gear that make the sport safe for children. In fact, the sport has fewer injuries than little-league football. The Quarter Midget Association reviews and evaluates safety rules to ensure that it remains a safe and competitive sport.

The environment at the races, and the sport in general, is all about family involvement.  The children learn valuable skills and sportsmanship, make great friends, and the whole family gets involved.

Landon, who is 6-years-old, started racing this year, and as you can see from the photos, he is a natural! He came in first place in his category, Junior Novice, this year. 

Berlanga Dentures is active in the community, supporting young people like Landon.  To learn more about midget racing, and the Little Wheels Quarter Midget Association, visit their website at littlewheelsqma.com.
