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 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.
