WEATHER OR NOT!

If you've been watching the forecasts, it could rain or it may not. IF it rains and events are called, the points races are done and drivers finish where they were as of the last race. This has happened a few times in the past ten years and this is how it has always happened. Let's hope for sunshine!

This week at Crystal Motor Speedway is a full night of racing of all six divisions and is the championship night for five of our six divisions. Pit gates open at 4 PM and the grandstand gates open at 5 PM. Racing begins about 7:30PM. Adult admission to the grandstands is $12 and kids 5-11 are $5. Pit passes are $25.  Further information can be obtained by calling the track office at 989.235.5200 or emailing me at This email address is being protected from spambots.

There is an updated version of the "General Rules" available in a pdf format HERE. I'll try to get it on a page of its own shortly. A printable page of the CMS schedule can be found here: http://crystalmotorspeedway.com/schedule14.pdf

All you need to do is buy a single product of each category... use it, sell it, whatever... and you can win. The complete rules are linked below. If you win consistently, you are probably giving away hundreds of dollars.

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! 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.

Get the latest 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.

July 23, 2011

On a beautiful night filled with memories of loved ones lost, Bob Griffin picked up what can only be described as one of, if not the most emotional wins of his career as he was able to bring the checkered flag home on the anniversary of the death of Kesha Lee.

Feature Winner Pro Trucks - Bob Griffin, July 23, 2011Griffin was able to hold off an early challenge from second year Truck racer Ashlee Scott to take the victory over Scott, Dave Verhaar, Tim Wood, and rounding out the top five Kevin Deal. With the absence of Carl Thayer the points for the Engine Pro Pro Trucks were shook up quite a bit at the end of the night with Scott Nieman taking over the points lead over former truck champion Tm Wood and Dave Peters. Heat race winners were Ashlee Scott and Bob Griffin.
