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.

 

May 12, 2012

Don Hintz, Greg Wiles and Milt Montgomery battled for the early lead
in the PRW USA Engine Pro IMCA feature with Hintz getting out front.

Feature Winner IMCA Mods - May 12, 2012Hintz had just begun to pull a way when his motor let go, spilling oil
all over the track. Montgomery took the lead when the green flew again
with Wiles and Jerry Hunt following. Bob Hutson, Chad Wernette and
Brody Bowser moved into the top five and Wernette continued his
momentum to climb into third. Something in the steering system of the
Hunt machine went awry and he ended up over the top in turn two.
Wernette took over the lead with just a few laps to go and while every
one else battled for position, Wernette held on to win over
Montgomery, Hutson, A.J. Ward, Dan Minikey Jr., Wiles, Joe Fowler,
Bowser, Chad Maurer, and Rusty Zeigler. Fowler took the B Main with
heats falling to Hintz, Bowser, and Montgomery.
