We will be live streaming the races August 1st  starting about 7:25 or so and you can watch on your pc HERE while I-Pad users can watch HERE The other link for I-pads or I-pods is here

I'm getting a lot of email about certain things so I'll post this here. As I've explained many times, my wife is critically ill and we have no insurance and are being forced to see doctors that are far from intelligent. I am slowly losing my wife and with it, my will to keep on. I have someone that is supposed to be taking over the website soon. I don't have the heart or the will to keep on doing things as I watch my wife slowly leave me. I've done this website since 1993. I hate to give this site 'away' but truth be told, it no longer means anything to me. Every day is a struggle and every day, my heart hurts a little more. I am cutting my ties with the track but not with Mr. Flinn. Ron has been like a father to me for over 20 years and I can not thank him enough for all he has done for me. Give me some time to teach the new person how to do the things I have done.
Thank you for the last 22 years.

Both the grandstand ticket booth and the pit booths have the forms. C) All four wheelers, golf carts and or other forms of camp ground 'transportation' must be registered and have some type of identifying sign or number on them. Ask at one of the booths for more information!  

The track has plenty of primitive camping available.  More information can be obtained by calling the track office at 989.235.5200. The 2015 SCHEDULE IS HERE.

Our "R Word" list has topped out at over 1800 people so far. It has come to my attention that some of you did not get an email notification of the last couple rain offs despite asking to be added. A bit of research is showing me that I may have too many people on the list (over 1800 now) and Google decides who gets emails and who doesn't. To this end, I am breaking up the old list and making a second list to augment the first. If you did not get an email after signing up, please send me a new request and I'll add your name to the new list to make sure you get notified. Thanks. Let's get get the 'lost' home again!

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.

 

       
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
       
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
       
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
       
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
       
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         

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.
