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.

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.

 

April 30, 2011

The 2011 racing season at Crystal Motor Speedway started out right where 2010 left off with Cheney Newland victorious in the Pro Stock event. While nobody had anything for the defending Port City Pro Stock champion, the racing action was fast and furiuos behind him. A mid race incident really shuffled the deck as the 44 machine of Blake Hollenbeck went up in one of the biggest clouds of smoke seen at CMS in a long time which brought out a caution. With so much smoke in the air, drivers had to take evasive action but Don Rohn ended up in the trees off of turn one. The man on the move was Vern Buskirk as he came from the very back of the pack to finish second after a furious battle with the 26 of Barry Rinard who would eventually settle for third in a very beat up race car.

Heat races went to Cheney Newland and Jeremie Raby.
