Weather or Not?!

 

I can always tell the weather when I wake up on Saturday morning and see 34 new "R Word" list requests. As of 12:15M, I haven't been notified of anything but... but... it is raining ever so lightly where I am, about 8 miles from the track. You can 'rely' on FB for your news but I read an awful lot of crap up there that is a long way from truth. I post nothing here until it is official. If you want to be on the "R Word" list, email or text me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  I ALWAYS send a response back so you know you were added.

This week at Crystal Motor is a night of all six divisions. Pit gates open at 4:30 and the main grandstand gates open at 5PM. Racing begins at 7:30. Adults are $12 and kids 5-11 are $5. Pit passes are $25. More information can be obtained by calling the track office at 989.235.5200.  The 2015 SCHEDULE IS HERE.

New News! - A)The Michigan Traditional Sprints will return to CMS on August 15th after being rained out last week. B) Pursuant to tightening State and local laws, campers need to register to camp at the track. At this time, there is no fee but you must register. Both the grandstand ticket booth and the pit booths have the forms. C) All four wheelers, golf carts and or other forms of camp ground 'transportation' must be registered and have some type of identifying sign or number on them. Ask at one of the booths for more information!  

The track has plenty of primitive camping available.  More information can be obtained by calling the track office at 989.235.5200. The 2015 SCHEDULE IS HERE.

Our "R Word" list has topped out at over 1200 people so far. Naturally, I was on the road when Ron called me so I was a bit slow getting it out. When the notification for this cancellation went out, I had over 43 bounce backs. If you had registered and didn't get a notice, PLEASE send me a new request. I deleted the bounce backs from my list. Let's get get the 'lost' home again! You can join our "R Word" list by sending an email or TEXTING to this email address: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  If you are on the list and your email has changed, drop me a note!
 
There was a modification to the rules concerning transponders. While it was changed in the rules, I failed to post here it here. This rule was modified April 21st, 2015. It says: "18. Transponders must be mounted on the right side and the back of rear axle and in an orange transponder pouch. If your transponder falls off you may not be scored and you will be responsible for replacing the transponder.Any racer caught trying to modify or deliberately changing location of transponder will be disqualified."  Check with your tech inspector if you have questions.
 
The 2015 rules packages are here: LATE MODEL, IMCA, PRO STOCK, STREET STOCK, and the GENERAL CMS RULES. The 2015 SCHEDULE IS HERE.

You can reach me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. as you have been able to reach me since this site started back in 1993. I have or can get you the honest answer far more often than you can get it on FaceBook. You may find this hard to believe but not everything you read on FB is true.


For those that intend to have minors entering the pits, here is the minor release form to have pre-filled out. PLEASE NOTE! "Legal" people say you need to do one of two things. Fill it out and have it notarized or fill it out but don't sign it until you are at the track so track officials can countersign it. Other forms will be posted here shortly.

 

MORA - July 30, 2011

Our traveling visitors, the McNeese Manufacturing MORA Mini-Outlaws rolled out for their very eventful feature next. An early Spin by the pole sitter on the green flag lap collected a couple of other cars and forced them to the pits, basically cutting the field in half before we even got a lap in the books.

Once the field was reset they were able to click off a few laps on a track a lot faster than they are used to and the threat of a big wreck hung in the air. It finally happened when Nate Jones jumped a tire of a slower car and wrecked off the track in a big way. Rolling a couple of times and eventfully ending up well off the track on the back stretch. Nate was OK. 

Cycle McNeese was untouchable as he cruised along to a feature win over Nick Holden and Bud Schrader.

The heat race also went to McNeese.
