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.

We will be live streaming the races tonight starting about 7:25 or so and you can watch on your pc HERE while I-Pad users can watch HERE. You can test your device before the races begin by clicking on one of the previous links as we have a 24/7 stream of races from 2014 running.

Seventeen Engine Pro Pro trucks made the call for the feature event and Carl Thayer picked up his second victory in as many weeks. An early spin put the Ionia native to the rear of the field and with a couple of cautions over the course of the event Thayer was able to slowly work his way thru the field and eventually put himself out front and get the checkered flag. second went to Scott Neiman, Tim Wood, Bob Griffin, and Dave Dancer rounded out the top five.
