We will be live streaming the races August 1st  starting about 7:25 or so and you can watch on your pc HERE while I-Pad users can watch HERE The other link for I-pads or I-pods is here

I'm getting a lot of email about certain things so I'll post this here. As I've explained many times, my wife is critically ill and we have no insurance and are being forced to see doctors that are far from intelligent. I am slowly losing my wife and with it, my will to keep on. I have someone that is supposed to be taking over the website soon. I don't have the heart or the will to keep on doing things as I watch my wife slowly leave me. I've done this website since 1993. I hate to give this site 'away' but truth be told, it no longer means anything to me. Every day is a struggle and every day, my heart hurts a little more. I am cutting my ties with the track but not with Mr. Flinn. Ron has been like a father to me for over 20 years and I can not thank him enough for all he has done for me. Give me some time to teach the new person how to do the things I have done.
Thank you for the last 22 years.

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!

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.

 

       
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
       
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
       
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
       
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
       
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         
         

May 28, 2011 Highlights

Written by Trevor Hollis.

So, That's What Racecars Look Like
 

Crystal, MI - Finally mother nature dealt us a hand that we could play on Saturday. 133 cars checked into the pits to do battle on the 38th mile Crystal clay. The features started off with the Engine Pro IMCA modifieds and they did not disappoint. Nate Jones was the early class of the field as he pulled a large lead for the first half of the 20 lap event until mechanical gremlins reared their ugly head. Jerry Hunt was right there to capitalize. A couple of cautions made sure the field stuck together,

but in the end Hunt was just to much for the field and he was able to pick up an impressive win over Josh Borton, Rusty Ziegler, and Melvin Allen. Heat race wins went to Chad Wernette and Nate Jones.

The Kentucky Fried Chicken late models were next up on Saturday night and with the track tacky fast Roger Wing showed why he is a member of the Michigan Motor Sports Hall of Fame as he patiently waited to pick up the checkered flag in this 30 lap feature event. The racing was fast and furious as 20 late models battled it out for the win. Justin Mcneil led the first 26 laps of this event but the show was back in the pack as the crowd was treated to a late model racing clinic in patience by Roger Wing. With only a couple of cautions slowing the action wing ran his race to perfection, waiting until the leader started to struggle in lap traffic before pouncing and taking the win. Justin Mcneil, Carl Ries, Jeff Kohn, and Mark Anderson all earned top 5 finished. Heat race wins went to Matt Pickard and Mickey Carman Jr.

The third event of the night brought the Smokers Club street stocks out and Mike Vandermark Jr made it look too easy. He took the lead early and did not play well with others. Vandermark led nearly every lap and won the race by about a straight away Kyle Prochazka worked his way through the B main and eventually up to the top three before a flat tire forced his pit crew into action to try and preserve a top 10 finish and they were up to the challenge. But it was no where enough for the Brian Lebaron owned number 42 of Vandemark as the former street stock champion rolled into victory lane with a car that looked like it might not have made it another couple of laps. George Weese, James Prochazka, Bill Wilkins, and Dave Grega finished out the top 5. Heat race wins went to Vandermark and Shane Spencer.

In the Port City pro stock feature Ryan Kent had to work for his win over Don Rohn, Jeremie Rabby, Mike Hustead, and Chaney Newland. After his rough start to 2011 it looked like the 65 of Don Rohn was going to take home the win but a strong run, and some nice driving in lap traffic really placed Ryan Kent as one of the true title contenders this year in the Pro Stock division. Only one caution slowed this 25 lap event as Jerry Vanblaicum erupted in a ball of flames when his motor let go on the back stretch. He was ok.
Doug Mckeown and Jerimie Raby picked up heat race checkered flags.

The racesontheweb.com Flinn stocks rolled out for our second to last show of the night. Tyler Mcghan led nearly every lap, except the one that matters most. With only a couple of laps left in this event Zach Rummer used a lap car as a pick to get around Mcghan and pick up his first ever checkered flag. Bob Whitcomb rounded out the top three. The racesontheweb.com Flinn stocks will have the sunday portion of our Memorial Day Double off. Heat race victories went to Garret Wiles, Tyler McGhan, and Chris Decamp. Whitcomb also won the B Main.

The final event of the night brought out a full field of Engine Pro trucks and the defending class champion new just what to do to pick up another checkered flag. Carl Thayer was racing in a whole different zip code most of the night and easily won the 20 lap feature over Kevin Deal, and truck rookie Chance Allen. Only one caution slowed the action for a spin but it wouldn't make any difference as Thayer probably could have lapped the field if he really felt the need to push it. Heat race wins went to Thayer and Ashlee Scott.
