Rules, Announcements ... and More.

The Season Begins! 
The first winner of the night was in the Port City Racing Pro Stock division with Rusty Seaver taking the win. Scott Phillps took the top spot in a tight race in the KFC Late Model main event. Nate Jones continued his 2013 championship form as he won the Engine Pro Pro Truck feature. AJ Ward grabbed the  IMCA Modified feature, while a barn burner in the Smokers Club Street Stock feature was taken by Jasen Wiley. The races On The Web Flinn Stock event was taken by Johnny "Showtime" Miller.  More later Sunday morning!

 

 

Racing begins as close to 7:30 as we can make it with the pit gates opening about 4:30 and the main stands opening at 5PM. Front gate adult admission will be $12 on 'regular nights' and $15 on 'special nights.' Kids will remain at $5. A season grandstand pass can be obtained for $220. Pit passes remain at $25. In probably the best deal of the year, a family pass for two adults and two kids is only $25! If you have questions you can drop me an email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or you can call the office at 989.235.5200.

When I sent out the email blast to tell people that practice had been cancelled, I got roughly 20 emails bounces. If your email has changed, drop me a note. Please tell me what it was and what it is now. Thanks!

SPECIAL NOTICE!!!!
It probably won't come as a surprise to you after the winter we've had but the extended forecast says the endless winter and its cold weather won't abate until almost June. After careful consultation amongst the Ron and the staff, after the first night of racing, start time will move to 7PM to help get everyone home before the 'really' cold weather hits at night. Please come prepared during Test and Tune to finish your registrations and such to help speed things up for opening night.

Starting on the second night, drivers and their cars must be checked no later than 5:45PM. Due to the tight time schedule, you may only 'call in - check in' once a month. Opening night, we will start as soon as possible, trying to maybe start before 7:30 on opening night. We hope this will help keep the fans in the stands as long as possible. In June, the start time will revert to 7:30PM.

Unfortunately, front gate admission prices will rise to $12 on 'regular nights' and $15 on 'special nights.' Kids will remain at $5. A season grandstand pass can be obtained for $220. Pit passes remain at $25. In probably the best deal of the year, a family pass for two adults and two kids is only $25!

I have received draft versions of the revised versions of the the Pro Truck rules, Street Stock rules, and the Pro Stock rules.

As announced at the banquet, there is a new rule for the Pro Trucks:

OPTIONAL TRANSMISSION RULE Bert type transmissions will be allowed. If a Bert type transmission is used, you must add an additional 50 lbs on each side in front of the engine plate. Weight may be adjusted for competitive quality. NO BALL SPLINE TRANSMISSIONS WILL BE PERMITTED.

June 4, 2011

The Kentucky Fried Chicken Late Models found 20 Lates checked in and all 20 of them were on the line up for the 30 lap feature event. After a rough night on Friday night at the Mt Pleasant Speedway which saw the 6R of Carl Ries very torn up it appeared that the Blanchard native had something to prove and prove it he did with a very convincing feature win. Matt Pickard who finished second was all over Ries for the final 10 laps of the race but Ries just hit his marks lap after lap and was able to force Pickard to accept second place. Mickey Carman Jr was able to hold on to third while Mark Andersen finished 4th and Roger Wing came home in the 5th position.

Feature Winner Late Models - Carl Ries, June 4, 2011Heat races went to Mark Andersen and Kyle Borgman.
