The WinterNationals in Las Vegas - 
40 years of racing and counting!

Hacienda Hotel --- (1983 - 1984) 2 races
Union Plaza --- (1985) 1 race
Showboat Hotel  (1986 - 1999)  14 races
Buffalo Bills, Primm ( 2000 - 2009) 10 races
"The Orleans" Hotel (2010-2014) 5 races
Rio Hotel (2015-2016) 2 races
Back to "The Orleans" (2017 - 2018 - 2019) 3 races
"The Orleans" 2020 - "The Race that never Happened"
"The Orleans" 2021 - back up and running again!
"The Orleans" 2022

They first held Quarter Midget races at the Hacienda Hotel way back when at Easter.  You would see cars on the way with Quarter Midgets tied to the roof.
They ran on one end of the Go-Kart track that was at the Hacienda. This is when Sleepy and Bobby Trip were racing Quarter Midgets. 

When they started racing Quarter Midgets again - it was also at the Hacienda but this time in December - first hosted by PVQMRA.
This only lasted for 2 years. There were no trailers then and racers were working on their motors in the motel rooms - so Hacienda said "no more!"

That is when the races moved to the Union Plaza, downtown Vegas. The Go-Karts ran on one side of the hotel and Quarter Midgets were on the other side

The following year, 1986, they started racing at the Showboat Hotel and the races were there until 2009
The Showboat had a whole lot of bowling alleys and this is where the kids spent a lot of time
They had qualifying at the Showboat and they even had a track record. 
One year, it rained and qualifying got started late. At 2:00AM in the morning a rep from the Hotel came out and told them to shut it down for the night. 
They hit a total of 200 cars for a couple of years at the end and this is all there was room for.

Pomona Valley QMRA hosted the 1st races from 1983 - 1992. In 1993 Madera took over the hosting and has been doing it ever since.

In 2000, the races moved to Buffalo Bills at Primm, Nevada
Here, the kids had an arcade to play at, a jungle cruise and the Roller Coaster - they even set records on how many consecutive rides they could do.
Buffalo Bills was out in middle of nowhere so there was lots of room to park. With car counts going up, qualifying was done away with.
In 2003 and 2005 record attendance was set at over 400 cars with cars coming from as far away as Connecticut and Pennsylvania.

In 2010, Buffalo Bills shut down for renovation so the race was moved again - this time to the Orleans Hotel in Las Vegas
The Orleans also had an arcade for the kids and a lot of theaters - so there was lots to do after the races.
For 4 years the track was located on the back parking lot behind the Arena.
In 2014, the Orleans wanted the back lot for the bulls used in their rodeo so the track was moved to the side parking lot - which was a lot nicer. 
At this race, attendance hit 308 cars and they even had Riprider races for the kids on Sat night after the Quarter Midget races. 
The Orleans told the club that they would need the side lot for rodeo parking in 2015 so the club would have to race during the week and be out by Friday.

So -  once again, the race was moved and in 2015 it was setup and ran at the Rio Hotel with a renewal of 3 more years.
This years attendance was at 302 cars and people are still coming from all over the country. 
Year 2016 - at the RIO again and the car count has climbed to 350 cars

       2017 - Once again we have moved back to "The Orleans" Hotel -- 325 cars 
       2018 - At "The Orleans" with a 371 car count - Wow we are heading back up again!
       2019 - At "The Orleans" -- 332 cars (held during Thanksgiving Week for the 1st time ever).
(They were having a Rodeo during the 1st week in Dec so the race was moved up one week)
2020 - "The Orleans"- the race was scheduled but cancelled at the last minute due to Covid.
       2021 - Back up and running again at "The Orleans" -- 303 entries
       2022   "The Orleans" -- 307 entries

WinterNationals at the Orleans hotel, Las Vegas  12/3-7, 2014

This year the track was moved so it was beside the Orleans Arena instead of behind it. There was a lot more room.

There was over 300 cars from all over the country - a real National event.

They had a new fence this year brought in by the hotel which saved the club a lot of time and money. In the past, the club has hauled in the fence in a big trailer, and then had to take it down and haul it back to California.

Dave watches a handler check his car during practice laps.

Lined up for practice on Thursday. It was a late start due to rain and they did a second practice on Friday morning.

The RipRider Races - Sat night after the car races - 2015

Selling raffle tickets for the RipRider races
Kids names were picked from a raffle jar

RipRider Sponsers - 24 in all
Each sponsor picked a ticket to see who was racing for them. That kid got to keep the Riprider after the races.

I picked the 1st ticket and it was Almon

Each handler & driver had to put the Riprider together. There were 2 heats of 12 each and then a main event with all 24 kids

Zane Almon & handler - 
which part goes where??

Kids lined up according to how fast they put the Riprider together. 

Lined up and ready to get the green flag

The race was for 6 laps around a course laid out in the center of the big track
The trick was to hold onto one of the back wheels so it could not spin around.

And the winner is -- Zane Almon

A Day with Ernie Bose - Costa Mesa, CA - 3/16/2013 

Ernie's Shop - just behind the house
He cleaned all the parts here before assembling
There was also a table for surfacing heads and 
the tops of the block. I spent a lot of time there. 

Tony Hoffman, Ernie and myself
We spent about 3 hours in his backyard just talking
His niece came by as did the Chief of Police for 
Costa Mesa - they came by every day to check.

Norma Wetherbee had called me and wanted to 
know if Ernie was still around. I called him and
he said - come on down but don't wait too long.

Norma was so glad to see him and she brought
all her books so he could sign them

The "Quarter Midget Challenge"
Years ago the schools had a book in their libraries
called the Quarter Midget Challenge. It was a story
about a girl and her Quarter Midget. That story was 
the real life story of Norma Wetherbee and her dad.

Ernie passed away on Monday, Sept 23, 2013 at the age of 92!

Carlo Pogetto Memorial Race - PVQMRA - 2/25/07

After 50 years of racing, PVQMRA held its final race. Carlo Pogetto was responsible for getting this track going over 50 years ago and it was only fitting that the last race would be the Carlo Pogetto Memorial race. The Pomona Police Officers Association put on the Memorial ceremony and even Mrs Pogetto was in attendance. 

PVQMRA has a notable history but was best known as the 
World's Fastest Quarter Midget Track 

The Honor Gaurd standing by the Carlo Pogetto Memorial rock which was installed when Carlo Pogetto was killed in the line of duty.

Singing the National Anthem

Placing of the wreath in the cente of the track in honor of Carlo Pogetto. Following the placement of the wreath, the bagpipe player played several unforgettable melodies --  

Following the wreath ceremony, the police drove two of their cars down the center of the track

Notice the brick start/finish line.

Moving day has finally come. Everything is being moved to the Orange Show Fairgrounds in San Bernardino. The club has been renamed Orange Show QMRA and will race in the infield of the big track on brand new asphalt. 

All that will be left here at Pomona are the memories and the World Track Records -

And no one can take those away!!

Running a ramp up the tower stairs to bring down all the tower equipment and chairs

Two huge dumpsters were brought in -
one for added storage and one for trash

The track has a huge long storage bin on the property - this is being loaded with all the track equipment, snack bar machines, etc. It will then be loaded onto a truck and hauled to its new place at the Orange Show Fairgrounds. 

The Flag Stand was cut from its anchor posts and is also going to the new track
The club has purchased new plastic fencing which will be used at the Orange Show.

Even, the Start/Finish line bricks were dug up and they will be used at a new track when one is actually built. You can see the bricks as they looked in the Memorial Service above.
