INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Honda and the U.S. Auto Club have announced a multi-year partnership that will make Honda the title sponsor of several midget racing series.

Honda will be the official engine supplier of USAC’s National Midget, Ignite Midget (which will be renamed Honda Midget) and the .25 Midget series.

Honda’s new level of participation throughout USAC’s racing programs brings new energy with its national marketing footprint,” USAC president Kevin Miller said Thursday.

The partnership will begin right away, starting with the Midget Series race at Lucas Oil Raceway Park on Saturday, and will take full effect for the 2014 race season.

Honda will supply USAC with pace cars for the National Midget and Honda Midget Series along with Honda Side-by-Sides and ATVs for series officials along with other utilities for racing teams.
