Weather or Not?!

 

I can always tell the weather when I wake up on Saturday morning and see 34 new "R Word" list requests. As of 10:25 AM, I haven't been notified of anything but... but... it is raining where I am, about 8 miles from the track. You can 'rely' on FB for your news but I read an awful lot of crap up there that is a long way from truth. I post nothing here until it is official. If you want to be on the "R Word" list, email or text me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  I ALWAYS send a response back so you know you were added.

This week at Crystal Motor is a night of all six divisions. Pit gates open at 4:30 and the main grandstand gates open at 5PM. Racing begins at 7:30. Adults are $12 and kids 5-11 are $5. Pit passes are $25. More information can be obtained by calling the track office at 989.235.5200.  The 2015 SCHEDULE IS HERE.

New News! - 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. 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 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.

Calvin Bracket lead the opening laps of the PRW USA IMCA Modified feature but then spun in front of everyone, causing everyone to take evasive action.

Feature Winner IMCA Mods - June 30, 2012

Remarkably no one touched him and he was able to continue at the back of the field. Once green again, Brody Bowser pulled out front with  Robert Putt and Jerry Hunt chasing. A brief caution brought Bowser back into view of the rest of the field it wasn't long before he began to check out again. In the mean time, Myron DeYoung and Chad Wernette fought for second, running three wide with Hunt. DeYoung moved into second with Wernette and Hunt fighting for third. Bowser cruised to the win over DeYoung, Wernette, and Hunt.
