Established in 1954
The CQMA club and racing facility have long played a part in quarter midget racing for kids in Northern California. Quarter midget racing is a fast-paced family sport that teaches children the meaning of sportsmanship -- win or lose -- fairness and discipline.
Hidden from view behind Rio Linda High School in a grove of shade trees is one of the oldest and possibly finest dirt quarter midget race tracks in the country.Roy Hayer Memorial Race Track, named for a longtime quarter midget supporter, produces great racing programs.
Home of the Capitol Quarter Midget Association, the facilities include a 1/20 mile dirt racing surface, permanent timing and scoring tower, snack bar, permanent restrooms, shaded spectator stands and a large pit area.
