Announcements and More

Catching Up and Getting Ready for 2015 

Test and Tune will be April 11th and 12th at the usual 1 PM to 5 PM times. We will continue to use the American Racer 970's and they should be in stock at the track by Tuesday. I would call the track at 989.235.5200 to make sure someone will be there to help you. Ron says he expects that the IMCA Mod tires will be in stock on or about March 20th. He will let me know if and when that is definite.

Opening night will be April 18th at 7:30 PM. Memorial Day Weekend racing will be May 23rd and 24th. The Fourth of July falls on a Saturday and in order to keep from hurting the regular Friday night tracks that surround us, CMS will only run the night of the Fourth. The Government doesn't plan on 'celebrating' on July 6th. The Labor Day Weekend will be September 5th and 6th and finally, the Great Lakes Nationals will be run on Saturday and Sunday, September 19th and 20th.


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.

Right about here, I need to apologize for my inattentiveness during the majority of the 2014 season. My wife began to have neurological (brain) issues early in February of 2014 and by the time things got sorted out, things had spiraled out of control and my attention was not on racing. Things haven't improved with her but they have at least stabilized. I will try to do better this season. Without my crew at the track picking up and carrying my load, things would have really been bad. I appreciate the work they did under some bad circumstances.

 


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.
