Our "R Word" list has topped out at over 1800 people so far. It has come to my attention that some of you did not get an email notification of the last couple rain offs despite asking to be added. A bit of research is showing me that I may have too many people on the list (over 1800 now) and Google decides who gets emails and who doesn't. To this end, I am breaking up the old list and making a second list to augment the first. If you did not get an email after signing up, please send me a new request and I'll add your name to the new list to make sure you get notified. Thanks. Let's get get the 'lost' home again! You can join our "R Word" list by sending an email or TEXTING to this email address: This email address is being protected from spambots.

There was a modification to the rules concerning transponders. While it was changed in the rules, I failed to post here it here. This rule was modified April 21st, 2015. It says: "18. Transponders must be mounted on the right side and the back of rear axle and in an orange transponder pouch. If your transponder falls off you may not be scored and you will be responsible for replacing the transponder.Any racer caught trying to modify or deliberately changing location of transponder will be disqualified."  Check with your tech inspector if you have questions.
 
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.


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.

 

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!
