Unlike QMA, where Grand National Races are stand-alone events, USAC's quarter midget program runs two series of national races (one for pavement and one for dirt) and crowns a champion based on overall points in the series.  Traditionally, a driver must participate in at least three of the National Races in order to run for points and one of those races must be the Battle of the Brickyard at Indianapolis.  Unfortunately, USAC was unable to schedule the Brickyard race in 2020.
