Up Next -  Post Season Racing!

This week at Crystal Motor Speedway starts the post season events. On Saturday, August 30th, the SOD Sprints will be on hand along with fireworks. The Late Models have the night off. On Sunday, August 31st, the Outlaw Late Models with their big sideboards and the annual open Modified event are the star attractions. The IMCA Mods have the night off. Both nights are sponsored by Anderson Contracting and Renovations. Then on September 12th and 13th, the final event of the season is the Great Lakes Nationals.  The track has lots of camping space available!  Pit gates open at 4 PM and the grandstand gates open at 5PM. Racing begins about 7:30PM. Adult admission to the grandstands is $15 and kids 5-11 are $5. Pit passes are $25.  Further information can be obtained by calling the track office at 989.235.5200.

NOTE: I had posted here about a DQ that apparently has caused a stir on FaceBook... which is exactly why I don't run my personal business on FaceBook. Either way, I just report what I am given. I was told Saturday night that there was a DQ and I was told Monday afternoon that it had been recinded. Oh well.

There is an updated version of the "General Rules" available in a pdf format HERE. I'll try to get it on a page of its own shortly. A printable page of the CMS schedule can be found here: http://crystalmotorspeedway.com/schedule14.pdf

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.

July 28, 2012

Bobby Lynn and Barry Rinard jumped out front in the opening laps of
the Port City Racing Pro Stock feature, with Rinard looked high and
then low as he tried to take the top spot away from the veteran driver
to no avail.

Feature Winner Pro Stocks - July 28, 2012Playter took advantage of a Rinard bobble to move to second and immediately began to look under Lynn. A caution bunched the
field but Lynn jumped back out front. Playter and Rinard touched as they tried to haul in Lynn and several cars went spinning into the infield, sending both drivers to the rear and Playter in the top spot. Once under green, Chaney Newland had moved to third followed by Vern Buskirk and Jake Headley. Lynn moved to the lead again but Newland moved to second and then slid under Lynn for the lead with Playter, Buskirk, and Lynn running three wide but Playter tangled with Buskirk and they spun. The final green saw Newland take the win over Buskirk, Headley, Marty Sowles, Rinard, Lynn, Mike Husted, Todd Bush, Playter, Jr. and Blake Hollenbeck. Rinard and Buskirk went home with heat wins.
