Our "R Word" list has topped out at over 1800 people so far. It has come to my attention that some of you did not get an email notification of the last couple rain offs despite asking to be added. A bit of research is showing me that I may have too many people on the list (over 1800 now) and Google decides who gets emails and who doesn't. To this end, I am breaking up the old list and making a second list to augment the first. If you did not get an email after signing up, please send me a new request and I'll add your name to the new list to make sure you get notified. Thanks. 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.

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.

 

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.
