Announcements and More

Baby, It Was COLD Out There!  

The SOD Sprints were in town Saturday and they put on their normal fantastic show. As soon as I get results on that series, I'll post it. Benjamin Nott grabbed the win in the Flinn Stocks while Zach Olger took home the win in the KFC Late Models. Chad Wernette brought home the win in the Allstar Performance IMCA Mods and Andrew Fidler bested a tight field in the Engine Pro Pro Truck division. Finally, Will Stanley made his first run at CMS in a year or so and showed 'em he hadn't forgot how to win as he scored the Street Stock feature. Points, winner photos, and such are posted under each division now.
 
 
Next week at Crystal Motor Speedway is a regular night of all six divisions, sponsored by Michigan One Community Credit Union. 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

I am tentatively bringing the live stream to an end as of last night. Too many issues not of our making. We had $600 worth of cables cut by some nimrod and I can't afford to fix that this week. I'll do what I can but bad wires lead to bad video and loss of video signal.

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.

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.

September 4, 2011

In Kentucky Fried Chicken Late Model action it would be Bob Finlay picking up the feature over Michigan Motorsports Hall of Famer Roger Wing, Carl Reis, Sam Epling and Jay VanDyke. Justin McNeil started on the pole and would lead the first handful of laps before a mistake in turn three would allow Finlay to sneak by take over the lead. It looked as though lap traffic would be a major player but right as the leaders started to pick up the tail of the field a caution would fly and Finlay would have open track in front of him and would not look back.

Feature Winner Late Model - Bob Finley, Sept 4, 2011
Roger Wing and Dean Huizenga picked up checkered flags in their heat races.

With a small field of Outlaw Late Models in the house, high speed would be the norm while much side by side racing would be far and few in between. John McDonald would start on the pole of the 20 lap feature event and would lead wire to wire to pick up the win. The only significant event of the night would happen in turn number one when the 05 car of Aaron Morey would fall off the top of the track and his momentum would carry him into the trees and swamp. Morey would be ok but would not be able to rejoin the field. Matt Pickard would finish second, third place would go to Joshua Knoll, Kevin Nelson Jr. and Jason Parkhurst would round out the top five. Heat race action would go to McDonald as well.
