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 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.
