Up Next - Post Season Racing!
We are racing! If you can't make it, you can watch live HERE about 7:30 or so. This is a FREE service but it never hurts to send a couple three bucks to help support them. There is a link to donate on that page.
Always watch this site for the latest updates.
Night one of the two night Labor Day weekend found Ryan Ruhl beating out Dustin Daggett to win the Engine Pro SOD Sprints presented by ARP feature while Rob Brillhart got out early and held a big lead throughout the rest of the Street Stock feature to go home with the win over Mike VanderMark. Jerry Hunt won the Port City Race Car IMCA Modified
event with Taylor Runions winning big in the Races On The Web Flinn Stocks. The Port City Race Car Pro Stocks was a ten lap battle between Gary VanderMark and Rob Brillhart with the win finally going to VanderMark. The final event of the night was the Engine Pro Pro Trucks and while the truck was the familiar red and white 14, it was Andrew Fidler bringing it home for the win. Racing continues on Sunday!
On Sunday, August 31st, the Outlaw Late Models with their big sideboards and the annual open Modified event are the star attractions. The Late Models return but the IMCA Mods have the night off. Both nights are sponsored by Anderson Contracting and Renovations. Then on September 12th and 13th, the final event of the season is the Great Lakes Nationals. The track has lots of camping space available! Pit gates open at 4 PM and the grandstand gates open at 5PM. Racing begins about 7:30PM. Adult admission to the grandstands is $15 and kids 5-11 are $5. Pit passes are $25. Further information can be obtained by calling the track office at 989.235.5200.
There is an updated version of the "General Rules" available in a pdf format HERE. I'll try to get it on a page of its own shortly. A printable page of the CMS schedule can be found here: http://crystalmotorspeedway.com/schedule14.pdf

All you need to do is buy a single product of each category... use it, sell it, whatever... and you can win. The complete rules are linked below. If you win consistently, you are probably giving away hundreds of dollars.
Unfortunately, front gate admission prices will rise to $12 on 'regular nights' and $15 on 'special nights.' Kids will remain at $5. A season grandstand pass can be obtained for $220. Pit passes remain at $25. In probably the best deal of the year, a family pass for two adults and two kids is only $25! Drivers and their cars must be checked no later than 5:45PM. Due to the tight time schedule, you may only 'call in - check in' once a month.
Get the latest versions of the revised versions of the the Pro Truck rules, Street Stock rules, and the Pro Stock rules.
As announced at the banquet, there is a new rule for the Pro Trucks:
OPTIONAL TRANSMISSION RULE Bert type transmissions will be allowed. If a Bert type transmission is used, you must add an additional 50 lbs on each side in front of the engine plate. Weight may be adjusted for competitive quality. NO BALL SPLINE TRANSMISSIONS WILL BE PERMITTED.
