News You Need! - 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 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.

 

July 28, 2012

Bobby Lynn and Barry Rinard jumped out front in the opening laps of
the Port City Racing Pro Stock feature, with Rinard looked high and
then low as he tried to take the top spot away from the veteran driver
to no avail.

Feature Winner Pro Stocks - July 28, 2012Playter took advantage of a Rinard bobble to move to second and immediately began to look under Lynn. A caution bunched the
field but Lynn jumped back out front. Playter and Rinard touched as they tried to haul in Lynn and several cars went spinning into the infield, sending both drivers to the rear and Playter in the top spot. Once under green, Chaney Newland had moved to third followed by Vern Buskirk and Jake Headley. Lynn moved to the lead again but Newland moved to second and then slid under Lynn for the lead with Playter, Buskirk, and Lynn running three wide but Playter tangled with Buskirk and they spun. The final green saw Newland take the win over Buskirk, Headley, Marty Sowles, Rinard, Lynn, Mike Husted, Todd Bush, Playter, Jr. and Blake Hollenbeck. Rinard and Buskirk went home with heat wins.
