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.

June 23, 2012

Another stellar field of 21 Kentucky Fried Chicken late models were on hand so it would take three heats to figure out what the "b" main would look like.

Feature Winner Late Models - June 23, 2012 Followed by the In an action packed opening heat it was Carl Ries holding on to take victory over Matt Pickard and Kyle Borgman. In the second heat it was Roger Wing, Scott Baker and Bryant Dickenson making up the top three and in the final heat it was Dean Huizenga edging out Tim Stott and Mike Fountain in easily the closest finish of the three heats for the late models. With 5 drivers moving on from our last chance qualifier, Eric Monk was able to hold off a hard charging Rob Taylor and Dan Delong. Jason Borton, a rookie in the late model division would start in the front row and lead for most of the early going, but it wasn't long until Michigan Motorsport hall of famer Roger Wing would make his presence known. Wing would take the lead on lap fourteen. Ionia native Scott Baker was a man on a mission all night. After starting in the 11th spot, Baker would work his way to second when a caution on lap 22 would allow him to get right on the bumper of Wing. The yellow flag would come out again, this time with only three laps to go, bunching the field up, and setting up a fantastic finish! No one would have anything for the 55W as he would cruise on to victory over Baker and Carl Ries.
