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.

 

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.
