A field of 32 WOMPS were on hand for the Concord 500 AWRA event at The Slot Car Track on Saturday, November 3, 2018. 


The action started in the popular Legends class, where a total of 17 cars took to the tri-oval. First up was the Junior Division racers, who as usual. put on a great show. 


The Junior Division is made up of younger racers (ages 5-12) who have less experience than the adult racers. The race Legends cars in the same race as the adults, but in a separate heat. Essentially, they are in a race within a race. They win plaques and other prizes just as the adults do, and are racing under the same rules as the adults.


Five-year-old Amiyah Wilson, the youngest racer to ever start an AWRA event, was the fastest qualifier. Amiyah is in her second year of AWRA racing and she is becoming a real contender. 


Amiyah led early in the Junior Division race but was overtaken by Aubree Maher, who posted her first career AWRA Junior Division win. Three-time Junior Division winner Hanna Sears settled for third, and Tiger Tim Middour rounded out the field in fourth. Here is the full field rundown. 


1. Aubree Maher - 362 laps (13th overall)

2. Amiyah Wilson - 297 laps (15th overall)
3. Hanna Sears - 289 laps (16th overall)
4. Timmy Middour - 272 laps (17th overall)
