Mike Fedorcak & The Munchkin Race Car

When Mike Fedorcak debuted his famed Munchkin midget in August 1987, the car was fast right out of the box – real fast in fact. After winning that night’s UMARA midget feature at Grundy County Speedway in Illinois, Fedorcak was told to never come back with the car. After winning the World Wide Auto Racing midget feature at Toledo (Ohio) Speedway on Sept. 2, 1985, Fedorcak strapped into friend Tom Brewer’s supermodified to do double duty. “The cars I was passing on the outside got together,” Fedorcak remembered. But why was Fedorcak interested in building a car that might only be competitive at a single track?. “We tested at IRP with the original version of the Munchkin and it was scary,” Fedorcak said. “I went down there to New Zealand and raced three years in a row,” Fedorcak said. After winning the 1991 Night Before the 500 midget racing while driving for Lewis, Fedorcak felt his career had peaked. “I think if I would have been willing to race Winchester, I could have landed the Steve Lewis ride full time,” Fedorcak said.
