Nice Night-Good Racing!!

Mitchell Hunt won his very first IMCA Mod feature in his rookie year. The Pro Truck win went to Andrew Fidler. Kevin Rohn Jr scored the Flinn Stock event and Nate Jones cruised to the Pro Stock event. Kyle Borgman won in the Late Model feature and Will Stanley eked out the win in the Street Stocks.

Now... Lesson #738 in "Why you Don't Believe Everything You Read on FaceBook." No more than five minutes after the IMCA feature was over, I was getting messages telling me that Mitchell Hunt had refused a claim. When I began to get official paperwork from the track well after the race was done, that fact wasn't borne out in the materials I was getting. It was late so I left an "unofficial" note about it here but I needed to get it straight. I journeyed to the track late this morning to verify exactly what had happened. Turns out that the people who had messaged me were LYING. Imagine that. Young Mr. Hunt honored his claim and did so willingly. I have known the Hunt family for a long time which is why none of this made sense. The reason I bring this up here is because I wanted to set the record straight. I've done this website since its inception and I've always tried to get the truth out. As long as I do this website, that will continue to be the case. Thanks for your time.

Next week at Crystal Motor Speedway is a celebration of the Fourth of July with a full schedule of all six normal divisions and includes the annual fireworks display. Due to the way the government is handling the holiday, this will only be a one day show instead of the normal two day event. Adults are $15, kids 5-11 are $5 and pit passes are $25. Pit gates open at 4:30, grand stand gates open at 5 PM. Further information is available by calling the track office at 989.235.5200  The 2015 SCHEDULE IS HERE.

News You Need! - A)The Michigan Traditional Sprints will return to CMS on August 15th after being rained out last week. B) Pursuant to tightening State and local laws, campers need to register to camp at the track. At this time, there is no fee but you must register. Both the grandstand ticket booth and the pit booths have the forms. C) All four wheelers, golf carts and or other forms of camp ground 'transportation' must be registered and have some type of identifying sign or number on them. Ask at one of the booths for more information!  

The track has plenty of primitive camping available.  More information can be obtained by calling the track office at 989.235.5200. The 2015 SCHEDULE IS HERE.

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.

 

July 28, 2012

Mike Fountain jumped out to a four car length lead in the opening laps
of the Kentucky Fried Chicken Late Model event with Eric Monk, Tim
Stott, Scott Phillips, and Tom Dusen all battling for second and
third, often running three wide.

Feature Winner Late Models- July 28, 2012Dusen moved to second while the rest
were still fighting for third. Dan DeLong spun just as he was about to join the front pack, bringing the field closer together. Fountain once again took the lead with Dusen and Monk following while Roger Wing moved to fourth and then third with just ten to go. Dusen began to
reel in Fountain but Wing pulled along side Dusen, passing him and then slid right up beside and then ahead of Fountain and pulled away from the rest of the field. With five to go, Wing had a comfortable lead as the rest of the field was literally under a blanket for the top ten cars. Wing took the win over Stott, Dave Hartman, Scott Baker, Matt Pickard, Dusen, Kurt Mesman, Rob Taylor, Mark Andersen, and Scott Philips. Pickard made his way to the big show by winning the B Main while Monk, Fountain, and Wing claimed heat gold.
