But as the evening wore on, the surface became tacky, ideal for sliding the cars around the unbanked corners of a one-sixth mile oval. And the racing looked almost like what occurs outdoors on dirt. An earlier program in the SkyDome at Toronto was similar to the one at Indianapolis--with Coca-Cola syrup instead of brake fluid on the floor yielding the same result--but racing in the Chili Bowl in Tulsa, Okla.

Rocco, who has never driven a Three Quarter Midget nor raced indoors, has acquired the car Ryan Preece has raced in recent Indoor races with considerable success. Preece recently announced that he will drive the car now solely owned by Donnie Preece, Ryan's uncle, in the three-race Indoor Auto Racing Series. Donnie Preece acquired sole ownership of the car from the late Ted Christopher's wife Quinn shortly after the racing legend's death in a private plane crash.

Rocco, who has never driven a Three Quarter Midget nor raced indoors, has acquired the car Ryan Preece has raced in recent Indoor races with considerable success. With a top car underneath him, Rocco, of Wallingford, CT, who won track championships this season at Waterford Speedbowl, Thompson Motorsports Park and Stafford Motor Speedway, is certain to rank among the pre-race favorites. To succeed, Rocco will have to go up against experienced indoor TQ Midget drivers in what is a very specialized racing discipline.
