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. Points, winner photos, and such are posted under each division now.
Next week at Crystal Motor Speedway is a regular night of all six divisions, sponsored by Michigan One Community Credit Union. Pit gates open at 4:30 and the main grandstand gates open at 5PM. Racing begins at 7:30. Adults are $12 and kids 5-11 are $5. Pit passes are $25. More information can be obtained by calling the track office at 989.235.5200. The 2015 SCHEDULE IS HERE

I am tentatively bringing the live stream to an end as of last night. Too many issues not of our making. We had $600 worth of cables cut by some nimrod and I can't afford to fix that this week. I'll do what I can but bad wires lead to bad video and loss of video signal.

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 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.
