Rules, Announcements ... and More.

The Season Begins! Yeah, a little snow is still on the ground (hasn't it be just a lovely winter?) but Saturday, April 19th, marks the opening of the racing season. Racing begins as close to 7:30 as we can make it with the pit gates opening about 4:30 and the main stands opening at 5PM. Front gate adult admission will be $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! If you have questions you can drop me an email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or you can call the office at 989.235.5200.

When I sent out the email blast to tell people that practice had been cancelled, I got roughly 20 emails bounces. If your email has changed, drop me a note. Please tell me what it was and what it is now. Thanks!

SPECIAL NOTICE!!!!
It probably won't come as a surprise to you after the winter we've had but the extended forecast says the endless winter and its cold weather won't abate until almost June. After careful consultation amongst the Ron and the staff, after the first night of racing, start time will move to 7PM to help get everyone home before the 'really' cold weather hits at night. Please come prepared during Test and Tune to finish your registrations and such to help speed things up for opening night.

Starting on the second night, 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. Opening night, we will start as soon as possible, trying to maybe start before 7:30 on opening night. We hope this will help keep the fans in the stands as long as possible. In June, the start time will revert to 7:30PM.

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!

I have received draft 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.

July 30, 2011

The Engine Pro IMCA modifies started the night off and things we a bit slow going throughout the feature. As everyone attempted to win on the first lap, a couple of cautions on lap one earned the field nothing but a few tore up cars and a very stern warning from the flagman but once things started going the field was able to click off a number of laps.

Feature Winner IMCA - Bob Hutson, July 30, 2011 ... YAAAAAAA !! Welcome back, Bob.
Myron DeYoung was fast from the drop of the green flag and led a number of the early laps and looked like the former Crystal Motor Speedway IMCA champion would be able to pick up another feature win in 2011, but it was not to be. At the half way point Myron slowed while leading and forced the rest of the field to take evasive action causing a bunch of the cars to suffer damage and ending the night for a few of them.

Bob Hutson, back with us after a couple of years running UMP across the state was able to inherit the lead and drive on to a Victory over Dan Minikey Jr, AJ Ward, Chad Maurer, and Rusty Ziegler.

Heat race wins went to Myron DeYoung, Jason Borton, and Brody Bowser.
