Rules, Announcements ... and More.

The Season Begins! Yeah, a little snow is still on the ground (hasn't it be just a lovely winter?) but Saturday, April 19th, marks the opening of the racing season. Racing begins as close to 7:30 as we can make it with the pit gates opening about 4:30 and the main stands opening at 5PM. Front gate adult admission will be $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! If you have questions you can drop me an email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or you can call the office at 989.235.5200.

When I sent out the email blast to tell people that practice had been cancelled, I got roughly 20 emails bounces. If your email has changed, drop me a note. Please tell me what it was and what it is now. Thanks!

SPECIAL NOTICE!!!!
It probably won't come as a surprise to you after the winter we've had but the extended forecast says the endless winter and its cold weather won't abate until almost June. After careful consultation amongst the Ron and the staff, after the first night of racing, start time will move to 7PM to help get everyone home before the 'really' cold weather hits at night. Please come prepared during Test and Tune to finish your registrations and such to help speed things up for opening night.

Starting on the second night, 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. Opening night, we will start as soon as possible, trying to maybe start before 7:30 on opening night. We hope this will help keep the fans in the stands as long as possible. In June, the start time will revert to 7:30PM.

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!

I have received draft 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.

The Kentucky Fried Late Models saw Sam Epling jump out to a good lead with Keith Gentz and Scott Baker running just behind him.

Feature Winner Late Models - April 27, 2013
Racing was hot and heavy all through the pack when Scott Phillips slipped off the edge of the berm. As he came back up, he made contact with another car and ended up rolling over, ending up on his roof in the turn three back grasses. Phillips was shaken but was up and walking around after a spectacular flip. With ten in the books, it was still Epling, Gentz, Baker, and Kris Patterson, and Dan DeLong. DeLong tried to put a move on Baker and got loose, falling back several positions, moving Bry Sloan into the top five. Another caution grouped the field, allowing Baker to close in on the leader several times in the closing laps, almost over taking him with three to go. Baker got a good run coming in for the white flag and finally overtook Epling and went on to win a wild one over Epling, Scott Nieman, Dean Huizenga, Sloan, Bill Beardslee, Blaine Hendrick, Patterson, Jr., DeLong, and Gentz. Zack Olger took the B Main while heats fell to Gentz, Baker, and Sloan.
