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.

July 2, 2011 Highlights

 Crystal, MI - Picture perfect weather for the annual Fourth of July two day event brought great car counts and huge crowds to Crystal Motor Speedway Saturday night. Saturday was sponsored by the Ionia Bowl and Sunday was sponsored by Andersen Contracting and Renovations. With near standing room only attendance, the weekend got kicked off with 154 cars in the pits Saturday.

The Engine Pro IMCA Modified event saw a name from the past get out front and never look back. Myron DeYoung proved he hasn't lost his touch as he returned to the line up he used to dominate and glide to the win. Rusty Zeigler took the B Feature with heats going to Jimmy Hale Jr, Aaron Raby, and Deyoung.

Josh Knoll broke out to lead and finally record his first win of the
season in the Kentucky Fried Chicken Late Models feature. Mark
Anderson won the B Main with heats going to Knoll and Scott Baker.

The Lane Automotive Traditional Sprints feature was proof you can take
the wing off the car and it still doesn't matter, Dustin Daggett can
win with it as he continued his domination of the Crystal clay. Heats
fell to Keith Love, Daggett, and Joe Bares.

Shane Spencer won his first Smoker’s Club Street Stocks feature of the
year despite heavy pressure from behind. Heats went to Will Stanley
and Mike Vandermark Jr..

The Racesontheweb.com Flinn Stocks was another wild affair with Taylor
Wiles taking the win. Heats went to Austin Bean and Alex Richards.

Don Rohn has been close to winning a feature several times this season
in the Port City Pro Stocks but Saturday night proved to be the charm
as he finally brought home the win. Greg Mandoka and Gary Buskirk took
heats.

The Engine Pro Pro Truck feature could have went to several different
drivers but in the end, it was Scott Nieman breaking the winners
circle stranglehold of Carl Thayer. Bob Griffin and Dave Peters
grabbed heat wins.
