News You Need! - A)The Michigan Traditional Sprints will return to CMS on August 15th after being rained out last week.

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.

 

August 27, 2011

The Kentucky Fried Chicken Late Models were next to take the track. All eyes were on Michigan Motorsports hall of famer Roger Wing as he tried to lock up yet another track championship to add to his storied career.

Feature Winner Late Model - Josh Knoll, August 27, 2011
The feature started with Josh Knoll and Scott Baker on the front row. Baker was able to jump out to an early lead but mechanical problems forced the Ionia native to the pits early, handing the lead over to the 87k machine. That’s all Knoll needed to drive away to a very convincing win over the 18 car field.

Wing started 9th on the field and it was very obvious that the game plan for the 55w was to stay out of trouble and lock up the championship. Matt Pickard did all he could do to try and make up points on Wing but fell short and finished second in points while Kyle Borgman rounded out the top three.

Heat race wins went to Kurt Messmen and Scott Baker.
