We did a lot of testing of the streaming system and found a few winter time bugs today but by the time we were done, we were streaming very steady at a bitrate of 350 with a very nice quality picture. We are using an old tired single core pc right now but it has been a steady old tired one core pc. I have ordered an eight core computer with 16 gig of RAM using a Linux os that should handle anything we toss at it and never break a sweat. I'm hoping it gets here by opening day but it is a custom order so who knows? We will struggle by on the old pc until the new one arrives! We hope to see YOU at the track on April 18th!
The 2015 rules packages are here: LATE MODEL, IMCA, PRO STOCK, STREET STOCK, and the GENERAL CMS RULES. The 2015 SCHEDULE IS HERE.

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.

The Engine Pro Pro Trucks rolled out next for their 20 lap feature. A couple of early spins involving Richard Melton on one occasion and Ashlee Scott in a separate incidents slowed the field a couple of times. Kevin Deal, in the 24d machine lead the majority of the race until the handling on that machine started to go away. Deal was not able to keep the speed and momentum up through the corners and that allowed the 45 truck of Dave Verhaar to over take him with only a handful of laps left to put the 45 back into the Engine Pro Crystal Motor Speedway victory lane.

Pro Truck Feature Winner - Dave Verhaar, April 30, 2011


Heat race wins were picked up by Scott Neiman and Deal.
