Up Next -  Post Season Racing!

Nate Jones wrapped up his Pro Truck championship by winning the Truck feature. Josh Borton held off the field to grab the Late Model event with Scott Baker taking home the big prize, the LM season championship. Brody Bowser took home the IMCA Modified feature with a couple weeks before season's end in the IMCA Mod points race. Dennis Parker won the Street Stock feature with Kyle Prochazka taking the season championship. Taylor Runions won the race but Nathan Sage took the Flinn Stock season championship. Finally, Blake Hollenbeck won a hotly contested Pro Stock feature but Josh Loomis claimed his first season championship. More inside!

SPECIAL NOTE!! We were originally told that Dennis Parker was DQ'd... so we reported it that way. Turns out that the engine claimer hadn't made a valid claim and thus, Mr. Parker did, indeed, win the Street Stock division feature. I apologize for the confusion!


Next week at Crystal Motor Speedway starts the post season events. On Saturday, August 30th, the SOD Sprints will be on hand along with fireworks. The Late Models have the night off. On Sunday, August 31st, the Outlaw Late Models with their big sideboards and the annual open Modified event are the star attractions. The IMCA Mods have the night off. Both nights are sponsored by Anderson Contracting and Renovations. Then on September 12th and 13th, the final event of the season is the Great Lakes Nationals.  The track has lots of camping space available!  Pit gates open at 4 PM and the grandstand gates open at 5PM. Racing begins about 7:30PM. Adult admission to the grandstands is $15 and kids 5-11 are $5. Pit passes are $25.  Further information can be obtained by calling the track office at 989.235.5200

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:   

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

In case you wanted to watch the replay of the race, GO HERE.  You can use our exclusive DVR function to jump to any point of the race by clicking on the line directly below the video.

If you own or drive at CMS and haven't joined the Engine Pro 'Pay Dirt' program linked below, you may be losing money each week. These are from the nights of July 3rd and 5th.



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.

September 4, 2011

Thirty seven Smokers Club street stocks checked into the pits to do battle on the Crystal clay and in the end it would be Gary VanderMark making his way to the front and picking up A Feature win. Mike VanderMark Jr., who started 17th on the field, would be able to work his way through a very tough field and come home second. Third place would go to Tim Tuttle, fourth to Ricky Smith Jr., and rounding out the top five would be Jay Chlebek.
