There is an updated version of the "General Rules" available in a pdf format HERE. I'll try to get it on a page of its own shortly. A printable page of the CMS schedule can be found here: http://crystalmotorspeedway.com/schedule14.pdf

Unfortunately, front gate admission prices will rise to $12 on 'regular nights' and $15 on 'special nights.' Kids will remain at $5. A season grandstand pass can be obtained for $220. Pit passes remain at $25. In probably the best deal of the year, a family pass for two adults and two kids is only $25! Drivers and their cars must be checked no later than 5:45PM. Due to the tight time schedule, you may only 'call in - check in' once a month.

Get the latest versions of the revised versions of the the Pro Truck rules, Street Stock rules, and the Pro Stock rules.

As announced at the banquet, there is a new rule for the Pro Trucks:

OPTIONAL TRANSMISSION RULE Bert type transmissions will be allowed. If a Bert type transmission is used, you must add an additional 50 lbs on each side in front of the engine plate. Weight may be adjusted for competitive quality. NO BALL SPLINE TRANSMISSIONS WILL BE PERMITTED.

The Engine Pro Pro Truck division kicked off the evenings action with Joe Fowler  taking the early lead with Chance Allen and Paul Grosnickle battling for second. Curtis Rice began to make a charge to get under Grosnickle for second with Nate Jones working to get by both of them. At the halfway point, Jones made it three wide down the front stretch and took the second spot away with Rice moving into third.
 
A caution with five to go bunched the field again and at the green, Fowler and Jones were locked side by side, taking turns sticking a nose out for the lead. As they took the white flag, the two touched coming out of turn four, with Fowler spinning out. Officials deemed Jones to be the caution car, handing the win to Fowler.
 
Second place went to Rice, followed by Grosnickle, Dave Peters, Jones, Tim Wood, Chris Brown, Carl Thayer, Allen, and Gary Dancer.
