Smoke was Here !!

If you haven't heard, NASCAR's Tony Stewart was at CMS Saturday night. A minor traffic jam ensued and I haven't seen the parking that full since some of the big "Dealer's Choice" events. More info on Saturday night shortly.

Pit passes are $25.  Further information can be obtained by calling the track office at 989.235.5200

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.

August 27, 2011

A little extra money was on the line for the Smokers Club street stocks as a number of people from the racing community came together to sponsor laps for the street stocks, a class near and dear to the heart of both Dave and Kim. Doug Helsel of Belding started on the outside of the front row and didn’t look back taking the lead right from the drop of the green flag and held on to lead all 25 laps, picking up the season championship trophy, and all of the lap sponsorship money. The feature however was not without its fair share of intrigue.


Feature Winner Street Stocks - Doug Helsel, August 27, 2011
Going into the night’s action three drivers had a realistic chance at picking up a championship in the division. Mike Vandermark Jr, JR Schmid, and Will Stanley were all separate by only a handful of points and one incident could prove fatal to the hopes of any one of them. We all thought we saw that incident when an accident on the front straightaway ended up with Stanley and Vandermark in the wall. Both men took their severely damaged machines to the pits where their crews worked furiously on both cars to get them back on the track and more importantly back on the track and still on the lead lap.

As attrition continued to take its toll on the 22 car field, Stanley and Vandermark Jr kept their noses clean and slowly worked their way back towards the front while never being more than two or three positions apart on the track. Meanwhile JR Schmid did exactly what he needed to do running right up front all night and eventually finished second to Helsel. In the end though Schmid’s deficit in points was just too much for him to overcome and Will Stanley was able to hold on to the points lead and win the 2011 Smokers Club Street Stocks points championship by one point over Mike Vandermark Jr and only three points over JR Schmid.

Helsel also was victorious in his heat race as well as Kurt Eberspeaker.

Special thanks goes out to all those who chipped in to make the Innagural Smoke Shop Dave memorial race as successful as it was and heres to hoping for just as much success for years to come.
