Announcements and More

Baby, It Was COLD Out There!  

The SOD Sprints were in town Saturday and they put on their normal fantastic show. As soon as I get results on that series, I'll post it. Benjamin Nott grabbed the win in the Flinn Stocks while Zach Olger took home the win in the KFC Late Models. Chad Wernette brought home the win in the Allstar Performance IMCA Mods and Andrew Fidler bested a tight field in the Engine Pro Pro Truck division. Finally, Will Stanley made his first run at CMS in a year or so and showed 'em he hadn't forgot how to win as he scored the Street Stock feature. Points, winner photos, and such are posted under each division now.
 
 
Next week at Crystal Motor Speedway is a regular night of all six divisions, sponsored by Michigan One Community Credit Union. Pit gates open at 4:30 and the main grandstand gates open at 5PM. Racing begins at 7:30. Adults are $12 and kids 5-11 are $5. Pit passes are $25. More information can be obtained by calling the track office at 989.235.5200. The 2015 SCHEDULE IS HERE

I am tentatively bringing the live stream to an end as of last night. Too many issues not of our making. We had $600 worth of cables cut by some nimrod and I can't afford to fix that this week. I'll do what I can but bad wires lead to bad video and loss of video signal.

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.

Jones Sweeps To Feature Win

Nate Jone …
April 18, 2015 - The first feature of the 2015 was the Pro Stock division that saw Mike VanderMark, Jr  grab the opening lead and slowly pull away. VanderMark was off to what seemed like an easy win when something went awry in his machine and he pulled into the infield, handing the lead over to Jake Headley. Headley held tight for several laps before being overtaken by  Nate Jones. Jones went on to out duel Don Rohn for the first feature winner of the season. Headley came home third, followed by Ken O'Connor, Gary Buskirk, Jaycee Baker, Nick Stormzand, Josh Loomis, Jeramie Raby, and VanderMark, Jr..
 
Jones and Rohn put heat heats in their career stat books.
