Announcements and More

Catching Up and Getting Ready for 2015 

Test and Tune will be April 11th and 12th at the usual 1 PM to 5 PM times. We will continue to use the American Racer 970's and they should be in stock at the track by Tuesday. I would call the track at 989.235.5200 to make sure someone will be there to help you. Ron says he expects that the IMCA Mod tires will be in stock on or about March 20th. He will let me know if and when that is definite.

Opening night will be April 18th at 7:30 PM. Memorial Day Weekend racing will be May 23rd and 24th. The Fourth of July falls on a Saturday and in order to keep from hurting the regular Friday night tracks that surround us, CMS will only run the night of the Fourth. The Government doesn't plan on 'celebrating' on July 6th. The Labor Day Weekend will be September 5th and 6th and finally, the Great Lakes Nationals will be run on Saturday and Sunday, September 19th and 20th.


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.

Right about here, I need to apologize for my inattentiveness during the majority of the 2014 season. My wife began to have neurological (brain) issues early in February of 2014 and by the time things got sorted out, things had spiraled out of control and my attention was not on racing. Things haven't improved with her but they have at least stabilized. I will try to do better this season. Without my crew at the track picking up and carrying my load, things would have really been bad. I appreciate the work they did under some bad circumstances.

 


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.

 

Didn't We Just Good-bye A Couple Weeks Ago?

Like the sands of the hour glass, so go the days of our lives… or something to that effect. It seemed just a few short weeks ago we were putting the Great Lakes Nationals in the books and here we are looking the new 2012 season straight in the face. Lots of old faces looking to be back to contend but I am seeing and hearing from a lot of new faces as well.

 

It has always amazed me that a small town like Crystal has always brought in such good crowds and so many really good local racers. I’ve had the honor of watching some of the best in the state race every week at my “home town track.”

Lots of good things planned this season and I am unveiling them to the fans as they come available. Races On The Web has bought back the photo booth and will be there on opening night. Due to some issues on my end, we might not be set up just the way we want opening night but things will happen quickly after that. It is hard to be 1400 miles away and direct business…especially with my ‘advancing years’ beginning to advance a little bit faster than I expected. The ol’ short term memory has gotten a tad shorter.

 

I hope to see all of my old friends at the track some time in May and meet a few of you newer race fans as well. Until then, keep it outta the wall and hammer it going down the straights!
