Brandon, South Dakota (May 23, 2022) … Promoter Matt Wood announced today that Chad Wheeler, Wheeler Metals, and WR1 Sim Chassis have partnered with the USAC Nationals to add a major bonus prize to be awarded to the overall points champion of the midget portion of this year’s USAC Nationals. Already the richest event of the USAC season, culminating with $20,000-to-win features for both the USAC National midgets and non-wing 410 sprint cars on the final night of the three-day event, the midget points champion will now take home a WR1 race-ready sim chassis.

“I’m very excited to have Chad Wheeler and WR1 Sims join the USAC Nationals,” said Matt Wood. “Chad is a racer, and he supports racing at every chance he gets. His sims are used at every level including, NASCAR, Indy Car, The All Stars, and The World of Outlaws.”

Chad Wheeler, builder/designer of WR1 Sim Chassis, was already in the metal business with Wheeler Metals when he decided to build his own sim racing chassis. Once he started selling them, his company quickly gained popularity with the top drivers and iRacers across the country ordering their own sim chassis from him. He now has a long waitlist of customers, but the overall points champion of the midget portion of this year’s USAC Nationals won’t have to wait because they’ll be taking theirs home from Huset’s Speedway.

No doubt the added incentive to take home such a coveted prize will have the USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget Series drivers up on the wheel and pushing even harder to collect as many points as they can over the three nights of racing action.
