Announcements and More

Catching Up and Getting Ready for 2015 

Test and Tune will be April 11th and 12th at the usual 1 PM to 5 PM times. We will continue to use the American Racer 970's and they should be in stock at the track by Tuesday. I would call the track at 989.235.5200 to make sure someone will be there to help you. Ron says he expects that the IMCA Mod tires will be in stock on or about March 20th. He will let me know if and when that is definite.

Opening night will be April 18th at 7:30 PM. Memorial Day Weekend racing will be May 23rd and 24th. The Fourth of July falls on a Saturday and in order to keep from hurting the regular Friday night tracks that surround us, CMS will only run the night of the Fourth. The Government doesn't plan on 'celebrating' on July 6th. The Labor Day Weekend will be September 5th and 6th and finally, the Great Lakes Nationals will be run on Saturday and Sunday, September 19th and 20th.


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.

Right about here, I need to apologize for my inattentiveness during the majority of the 2014 season. My wife began to have neurological (brain) issues early in February of 2014 and by the time things got sorted out, things had spiraled out of control and my attention was not on racing. Things haven't improved with her but they have at least stabilized. I will try to do better this season. Without my crew at the track picking up and carrying my load, things would have really been bad. I appreciate the work they did under some bad circumstances.

 


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.

 

July 2, 2011 Highlights

 Crystal, MI - Picture perfect weather for the annual Fourth of July two day event brought great car counts and huge crowds to Crystal Motor Speedway Saturday night. Saturday was sponsored by the Ionia Bowl and Sunday was sponsored by Andersen Contracting and Renovations. With near standing room only attendance, the weekend got kicked off with 154 cars in the pits Saturday.

The Engine Pro IMCA Modified event saw a name from the past get out front and never look back. Myron DeYoung proved he hasn't lost his touch as he returned to the line up he used to dominate and glide to the win. Rusty Zeigler took the B Feature with heats going to Jimmy Hale Jr, Aaron Raby, and Deyoung.

Josh Knoll broke out to lead and finally record his first win of the
season in the Kentucky Fried Chicken Late Models feature. Mark
Anderson won the B Main with heats going to Knoll and Scott Baker.

The Lane Automotive Traditional Sprints feature was proof you can take
the wing off the car and it still doesn't matter, Dustin Daggett can
win with it as he continued his domination of the Crystal clay. Heats
fell to Keith Love, Daggett, and Joe Bares.

Shane Spencer won his first Smoker’s Club Street Stocks feature of the
year despite heavy pressure from behind. Heats went to Will Stanley
and Mike Vandermark Jr..

The Racesontheweb.com Flinn Stocks was another wild affair with Taylor
Wiles taking the win. Heats went to Austin Bean and Alex Richards.

Don Rohn has been close to winning a feature several times this season
in the Port City Pro Stocks but Saturday night proved to be the charm
as he finally brought home the win. Greg Mandoka and Gary Buskirk took
heats.

The Engine Pro Pro Truck feature could have went to several different
drivers but in the end, it was Scott Nieman breaking the winners
circle stranglehold of Carl Thayer. Bob Griffin and Dave Peters
grabbed heat wins.
