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

Garrett Wiles grabbed the early lead in the Engine Pro Pro Truck
feature. As they came in for lap two of the feature, second place
runner Gaven Parks got loose

Feature Winner Pro Trucks - May 12, 2012
and spun in front of a tightly packed
field, collecting up Dave Peters, Richard Melton, Tim Wood, Ryan
Paradise, and Bob Griffin. Nearly all were able to continue. A second
incident in the same spot collected up several more trucks a lap
later. Wiles lead Sooy, and David Dancer. Ashlee Scott moved up to
challenge and take third while Sooy moved to pressure Wiles. Sooy took
the lead as Wiles got high in turn two. Carl Thayer was pushing for
the lead and went spinning in turn two, but was able to continue. Once
they went green again, it was Sooy and Scott battling for the lead
with Wood running a close third. With two to go, Scott slid under Sooy
with the white flag in the air. A tremendous battle ensued with Scott
taking the lead but then got into the last set of turns too hard and
Sooy took the lead and the win in a fantastic finish by inches over
Scott, Wood, Thayer, Kevin Deal, Mike Seaman, Melton, Dancer, Wiles,
and Paradise. Parks and Wiles added heat victories to their list of
achievements.
