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.

September 3, 2011 Highlights

Written by Trevor Hollis.

 Crystal, MI - It took a little bit of work but the ASCS Sprints on Dirt presented by Engine Pro had one heck of a feature event as they invaded the Crystal Clay for the final time on Saturday. Downtown Davey Brown would start near the front and never look back. Tight track conditions made for some very tight racing but it was great racing action. After having problems in his heat race, and racing his way through the B main Portland, MI native Dustin Daggett started 17th on the field and right from the drop of the green flag stared working his way through the field eventually finishing 5th. But it was all Davey Brown as he was able to navigate lap traffic and pick up the checkered flag. Heat races went to Steve Irwin, Andy Tunessen, Davey Brown, and Jared Horstman. Daggett was victorious in the B-main.

With rain continuing to be a threat and the IMCA modifieds not on the schedule for the Sunday portion of the Labor Day spectacular the decision was made to roll them out for their 20 lap feature event. It appeared early that the delay and the late hour might have shortened the tempers of a couple of the drivers as three early cautions kept the field tight but cooler heads would eventually prevail. Greg Wiles, who has a feature win already this season, was able to take over the lead and he would not look back. Wiles would pick up the checkered flag. Heat races went to Armond Holley, Robert Putt, and Buzz Lawrence. Mike Shanteau and Myron DeYoung.

In racingontheweb.com Flinn Stock action the Wiles brothers continued their domination of the class. Garrett Wiles started 4th on the field for the feature but it didn’t take long for him to make his way to the front and eventually pick up the checkered flag. Taylor Daniels was the early leader but a miscue in turn number gave that lead to Wiles. Garrett’s brother Taylor was victorious in heat race action.

In Port City pro stock action Larry Kosloski was looking to make it two feature wins in as many weeks. Starting on the pole for the 25 lap feature would give him the best chance and that’s exactly what the Grand Ledge native would do. Koz would take the lead from the drop of the green flag and didn’t look back. Having a notable run on the night would be Dick Reynolds who started 10 on the night and would come home second to Kosloski. Heat races went to Dick Reynolds and Chad Raby. The B main went to Ryan Kent.

In Engine Pro Pro Truck action it was 2011 points champion Scott Neiman would come out on top and pick up a feature win. Neiman would have to hold off a hard charging Dave Verhaar who would finish second while third went to Ashlee Scott. Neiman was also victorious in his heat race as was the 66 truck of Bob Griffin.

The final event of the night was the Smokers Club street stocks for their 15 lap feature event. With rules opened up there were a lot of new names but it was a couple of crystal regulars who would come out on top. Dave Grega would come home victorious in the feature. Heat race action went to Anthony Carlton and Will Stanley.
