Baby, It Was COLD Out There!  

The SOD Sprints were in town Saturday and they put on their normal fantastic show. As soon as I get results on that series, I'll post it. Benjamin Nott grabbed the win in the Flinn Stocks while Zach Olger took home the win in the KFC Late Models. Chad Wernette brought home the win in the Allstar Performance IMCA Mods and Andrew Fidler bested a tight field in the Engine Pro Pro Truck division. Finally, Will Stanley made his first run at CMS in a year or so and showed 'em he hadn't forgot how to win as he scored the Street Stock feature. More later on Sunday!

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.

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.
