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.

We will be live streaming the races tonight starting about 7:25 or so and you can watch on your pc HERE while I-Pad users can watch HERE. You can test your device before the races begin by clicking on one of the previous links as we have a 24/7 stream of races from 2014 running.

Profile System Allows Drivers to Connect With Fans

{December 30, 2013) - For a long time CMS Fans have wondered how to reach their favorite drivers without looking like the local neighborhood stalker.  New software installed on the site now allows that! 

When drivers and crew register as a CMS Fan they just have to answer Yes to the very first question on the registration form - Profile Space Required?

When the registration is complete and confirmed just login to your account and edit your profile area. Your public information is now viewable by CMS Fans and they can send you a message by requesting a "Connection."  The Request a Connection interface allows them an area to create a standard text message and forwards it to you for action. After reading the message you may read choose to: delete the request, ignore it, or respond to the fan and create a permanant link.  WARNING, your response will reveal your email address to the fan, so you may want to consider carefully how you react to the request.  

Your profile area has plenty of space to upload a few photos, recognize your crew and sponsors, and create a running commentary.  Take a look at it and let us know what you think.  

If you have already registered you should login and ensure your pertinant details are completed. Be sure you indicate Yes on the first question and what CLASS you are in so the driver lists will display properly.
