Our "R Word" list has topped out at over 1200 people so far. Naturally, I was on the road when Ron called me so I was a bit slow getting it out. When the notification for this cancellation went out, I had over 43 bounce backs. If you had registered and didn't get a notice, PLEASE send me a new request. I deleted the bounce backs from my list. 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.

The Smokers Club Street Stocks were the next race on the schedule. Multi time feature winner this season Mike VanderMark Jr started the show way back in the field and was fun to watch as he made his way to the front. Doug Helsel started on the front row and was able to jump out to an early lead over the rest of his competitors.

Feature Winner Street Stocks - Mike Vandermark Jr, July 30, 2011
The best battle, however, was for second and Will Stanley, Kyle Prochazka, Shane Spencer and a host of others battled for the opportunity to attempt to chase Helsel down. Helsel was able to fend off all challengers and pick up A Feature win in his red number 99 machine over Will Stanley, Mike VanderMark Jr, JR Schmid, and Shane Spencer.

Heats went to William Wilkins Jr and Doug Helsel.
