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.

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.

The Kentucky Fried Chicken sponsored Late Model feature got off to a fast pace with Denny Anderson leading over Dave Hartman, Amanda Wing, and Jay Van Dyke. Hartman pulled along side Anderson and they ran just inches apart lap after lap, one pulling a nose out front and then the other. Scott Baker worked his way forward and pulled into third, just off the tail of the leaders. With three to go, Baker slid under Anderson and rode that momentum to pass Hartman and went on to win the non stop green to checker race over Zach Olger, Hartman, Anderson, Wing, Van Dyke, Josh Borton, Kevin Reeve, Matt Pickard, and Tom Dusen.  

Kevin Reeve took the B Main with heats falling to Hartman,Olger, and Anderson.
