Thank YOU! - Great Lakes Nationals In The Books!  

Mike Burkin took the win in the Michigan Tradional Sprints, Zack Olger had a great race to win the KFC Late Models, Taylor Runions completed the 2014 season with a win in the ROTW Flinn Stocks, Johnny Deyoung Jr won an exciting race as he took home the big money in the Port City Racecar IMCA Modified event while AJ Ward cinched the season championship, John Taylor scored the Port City Racing Pro Stocks, Mike Seaman took his second feature of the season in the Engine Pro Pro Trucks, and Kyle Prochazka went from crew member to driver for the GLN and took home the checkers in the final race of 2014.

This completes the 2014 season at Crystal Motor Speedway. Seasons come and seasons go and 2014 was one of the memorable ones. Promoter Ron Flinn would like to thank all the fans, drivers, crew members, and sponsors for making this season worthwhile. The next 'event' is the awards banquet, held on January 10th, 2015. Watch this website or call the office at 989.235.5200 for further information. More info and photos iside!

 

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   

In case you wanted to watch the replay of the latest race, GO HERE.  You can use our exclusive DVR function to jump to any point of the race by clicking on the line directly below the video.

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.

A Word or Two on Photos

As some of you may know, I repurchased the photo concession from Brian and we are getting set up again. You may have also noticed that I am adding photos to the Facebook pages of various drivers. I am doing this with as many drivers as possible, starting mainly with the drivers that I interact with during the season and during the off season. I will gladly add a photo to any drivers page if you send me an email or a message... but then again, there is a method to my madness.

The live Races On The Web video stream is offered at no charge to everyone but it is expensive to do on my end. When I add the photo booth back into it, I have a staff of about nine to ten people that all need to be reimbursed at some level or another. The money we make from the sale of photos is highly instrumental in helping me reimburse my people. We sell advertising in the live stream stuff but many businesses are about as tight money wise as you are. I give a photo or two to you as often as I can in hopes that you might wander in and buy a few from us.

Snapping pictures is fun but it can be expensive too. Please don't just "lift" my photos here and forget how they came to be here. Between the photographer (who gets paid to risk himself) and me, there are at least three other sets of 'hands' on these photos. If you want these to continue to appear here, please don't steal them. You may not consider it stealing but it can't be termed any other way. If you make something that you are going to sell and I wander over and take it for my use, it is stealing. I've already told you I would give drivers photos and I occasionally give fans a photo or so. I don't send out winners pics for some fairly simple and obvious reasons.

In the next week or so, we will be printing some of the photos taken that night right there within about 30 minutes of them being taken. We are setting up a 'shuttle' to get the photos from the center of the track to the photo booth where you can see them. Once we are set up, we can print 4x6's, 5x7's, and 8x10's the same night the photos are taken. We will also have an archive of all of our previous photos taken this year so you can get a print on the spot. This will be set up shortly we hope this will help you.

Help me help you. Buy some photos. Send me a note of who you want to see more of in the photo booth and we'll do our best. Send it to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. You may see a lot of a couple particular drivers... because they not only asked us to take more photos of them, they BUY more photos. We give deals to people who buy lots of photos every week. Buy a few and you'll get our standard rates. Buy a bunch and you'll get a discount... buy a LOT and you'll get a bargain. That is how we do business. We know times are tight. We want to work with you.
Thanks!
