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 3, 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.

The Sunday portion of the weekend saw 127 cars in the pits and another huge crowd. Smoker’s Club Street Stock feature was won by Will Stanley with Tim Buskirk advancing by winning the B Feature. JR Schmid and Doug Helsel took heat events.

Ryan Vanderveen took his first feature event of the season in the Kentucky Fried Chicken Late Models. Troy Vanderveen won the B Feature with heats falling to Carl Reis, Scott Baker, and Tim Lytle.

The Races On The Web.com Flinn Stocks had a repeat feature winner in Taylor Wiles with heat wins going to Taylor Daniels and Austin Bean. With school out, this division is becoming larger each weekend and is always an exciting event to watch.

It has been a while since Myron DeYoung has been in the winners circle but he completed the weekend sweep by grabbing Engine Pro IMCA Modified feature again Sunday night. B Mains were won by Josh Borton and Jerry Hunt while Mike Chanteau, Brody Bowser, and Deyoung posed
for heat win photos.

The Port City Pro Stocks feature saw another first win of the season driver score the big one as Jacob Headley showed his might after fighting his way to the top and holding off all comers for the win. Reb Marble and Blake Hollenbeck added heat wins to their portfolio.

The Engine Pro Pro Trucks feature was a 'bang up affair' with Chris Verhaar surviving the feature to grab the win after numerous accidents began to eliminate drivers. Heats fell to Dave Dancer and Carl Thayer.

Next week at Crystal Motor Speedway is a full show and is sponsored by Gratiot Heating & Cooling. Gates open for the pits at 4:30 and grand stand gates open at 5PM. Adults are $10 and kids 5-11 are $4. Pit passes are $25. Further information can be obtained by calling the
track office at 989.235.5200
