Default ADVICE NEEDED

My son wants to start racing , he is 11 yrs old. What advice can i get on where to start him out?
He is knowledgeable of Dirt Track and Mini Stock. But he wants to go asphalt racing. Where would be the best for him to start at? :?:

Round track, is what he wants to do.
Just womdering where to start him, thinking of Quarter Midgets .
Going to Huntsville , Al. this wekend to watch the QMA Grands.
Guess that will help in the decision.
Thanks for the replies!!
