WQMA (the Washington Quarter Midget Association) is a QMA sanctioned quarter midget club in Region 9 with a track in Monroe, WA on the site of the Evergreen State Fairgrounds. The club started racing in 1957. It started running parking lot races -- particularly in the lot of what is now the Northgate Mall before finding a permanent home at Paine Field in Mukilteo, Washington. In the early 2000s, expansion and security requirements at Paine Field required the club to look for a new home. The club eventually moved to its current site at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds and started racing there for the 2007 season.

WQMA has traditionally run its club races on Sunday mornings starting with safety at 7:00am, registration at 7:30am, and a pit meeting at 8:45am (with racing immediately following).

The following chart shows the size of WQMA club races from the 2013 through the 2019 seasons. Any races which were canceled or rained out are linearly interpolated on the chart. Note that the large peak in the 2017 season (race #3) was the race before the 2017 Western Grands. Likewise, the large peak in the 2019 season (race #8) was the club's largest single day event ever: 145 cars at the Wild Wild West race.
