Central Missouri Speedway Looks Ahead to 2016 Race Season!

Tuesday, December 29th, 2015

(Warrensburg, MO) The 2015 season is now in the rearview mirror for Central Missouri Speedway (CMS) and it is time for the track to turn its attention to the 2016 season, which marks owners and promoters Earl and Susan Walls twenty-first year of operations.

The CMS staff is busily putting together plans for all division special events for next season and is currently pursuing potential business partners for the big three holiday special event weekends, which all feature two straight nights of racing.

The tentative 2016 race schedule may be found at www.centralmissourispeedway.net. The schedule features 24 nights of racing with opening set for Saturday, April 16th. Weekly classes for 2016 remain USRA Modifieds, Street Stocks, B-Mods, and Pure Stocks.

Once again, guest classes are scheduled on various race nights throughout the year to add variety to the race programs. As previously announced in an earlier CMS press release, ULMA Late Models have six appearances at CMS scheduled next season, anchored by the finale of the group’s annual ‘Triple Crown Shootout’ as part of the spectacular CMS Independence Day weekend. Additionally, the Allstar Midget Series has three race appearances scheduled with all three events taking place during the summer holiday weekends.

CMS most recently secured several dates with the still growing and increasingly popular Mod-Lite group, which is branching out and competing at several area tracks for their 2016 season. There are six race dates for the Mod-Lite group at CMS next season, with Saturday dates falling on April 30, May 14, June 11, July 30, August 6, and August 20.

Next year’s special-events begin with the Memorial Day weekend on Saturday, May 28th with two straight nights of increased purses for USRA Modifieds (to be announced) while Pure Stock drivers shoot for a $500-to-win event. B-Mods and Street Stocks will take part in night-one action. On Sunday, May 29th USRA Modifieds return for a second-straight night of action and an increased purse structure to be announced. USRA B-Mods, Allstar Midget Series, and ULMA Late Models will round out the night-two program.

The 11th Annual Tom Wilson Memorial (TWM) event, which is held over two nights during the Independence Day weekend, is going to be bigger than ever in 2016. Known as one of the premiere Modified events in the Midwest, the 50-lap race honoring long-time announcer Tom Wilson will pay a whopping $5,000 to the winner and $1,000 just to start. If the winning driver of the event turns out to be the same driver of the Memorial Day weekend special, the driver will capture a $2,500 bonus on top of the winning payout!

The TWM begins on Saturday, July 2nd with night one Modified qualifying, during which 12 drivers will lock themselves onto the main event starting grid. The Street Stock division also competes on night one with drivers gunning for a $1,500-to-win special event. Pure Stocks, B-mods, and the Allstar Midget Series round out the night one program.

For night two of the TWM weekend, Modifieds return for another round of qualifying on the way to locking in 12 more drivers for the $5,000-to-win main event. USRA B-Mods and the ULMA Late Models, who will be participating in the finale of their Triple Crown Shootout, will also compete. The track will celebrate our Nation’s birthday with another spectacular fireworks show after racing concludes to close out the weekend.

The final special-event weekend for 2016 begins on Saturday, September 3rd with Modifieds gunning for added purse money while B-Mods participate in their annual $1,500-to-win special. Street Stocks, Pure Stocks, and (tentatively) Lightning Sprints round out the night one program. Modifieds return for another night of increased purse money on September 4th; USRA B-Mods, Allstar Midget Series, and ULMA Late Models round out the night two Labor Day weekend race program. Labor Day weekend special-event formats and purse structures will be announced at a later date.

If the winner of the final Modified Special event of the year is the same winner of the featured race of the weekend during the Memorial Day and Independence Day weekends, the driver will walk away with a hefty $5,000 bonus on top of the already huge payouts for sweeping all three big-money events at CMS in one year!

Local driver Shad Badder has again offered his two-seater Modified to help CMS raise funds for three separate charities during all three of the special-event weekends. Fans will have chance to purchase laps with Shad around CMS during part of the race program. Money raised from the rides will go to a designated Breast Cancer Awareness group, the American Heart Association, and Homes for Our Troops.

CMS is seeking an experienced track maintenance person for the 2016 race season. Serious applicants must be experienced and possess proper credentials for operating heavy equipment used for weekly track preparation. Track equipment includes heavy-duty tractors, box blade, grader, sheep’s foot roller, standard water truck, and terragator water truck. CMS is also in search of a parts and tires service retailer. Prospective companies or independent dealers will be expected to be present during race nights. Prospective applicants should call Earl or Susan Walls at the CMS business line at (816) 229-1338. No calls after 8 p.m. please.

Drivers have two opportunities to save $10 on their 2016 Track Registration. The first opportunity comes on Saturday, January 9th during the annual CMS Registration Event held at the ABC Building on the Grounds of Grover Park in Warrensburg, Missouri. From Maguire St (Hwy 13 through Warrensburg), take East North Street past the King’s Chef Chinese Restaurant heading east. The ABC Building is on the right side just past the tennis courts as you start to go downhill. The event takes place from 9 a.m. to Noon. Here is the address you can plug in your favorite directions app: 416 Commander Wilkes Drive, Warrensburg, Missouri 64093.

The final chance to save $10 on registration takes place during the annual Bodee’s Racer’s Auction and Trade Show at the CMS vendor booth. The event is held on the Missouri State Fairgrounds. This year’s dates are Saturday, January 23 and Sunday, January 24, 2016. The event is held at the Mathewson Exhibition Center located at 2503 West 16th St, Sedalia, MO 65301.

The track registration fee for these two events is $50, after which, registration returns to the normal $60 annual fee. USRA recently released its 2016 Rules Book, which may be found at www.usraracing.com. CMS will utilize USRA rules for Modifieds and B-Mods in 2016. Street Stock and Pure Stock rules will be announced in the coming weeks.

As previously announced, the B-Mod, Street Stock, and Pure Stock purses will increase for the coming season. B-Mod main event winners will now take home $500 to win; Street Stock winners will receive $400, while the total Pure Stock purse nearly doubles in size.

Berlin Joins NASCAR Whelen All-American Series In 2016 Michigan Track Will Run Saturdays & Team With Kalamazoo

Monday, December 28th, 2015

DAYTONA, Fla.- Michigan racers have another high-speed track to chase NASCAR Whelen All-American Series points.

NASCAR and Berlin Raceway announced today that the .4375-mile paved oval outside of Grand Rapids will be a NASCAR-sanctioned track in 2016. Recognized as one of the toughest and most respected racetracks in the Midwest, Berlin will be celebrating its 66th season.

Berlin, which runs Saturday nights, will pair with Kalamazoo – a long-time member of the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series. Kalamazoo is moving its weekly program to Friday nights, and both tracks will share the Outlaw Late Models as their Division I.

“Becoming affiliated with NASCAR is a huge stepping stone for Berlin Raceway,” said Berlin President Mike Bursley. “We now have a better opportunity to showcase the talent our local drivers have, not only on a regional level but potentially a national level as well.

“The fact that someone racing here at Berlin Raceway could become the state champion and have a shot at nationals is not only exciting for us here at Berlin, but it is great for the drivers, teams, fans as well and we cannot express enough how excited we all are.”

Last year, Brian Bergakker won the Outlaw Late Model title at Berlin over Tom Thomas and Ross Meeuwsen. Bergakker also ran at Kalamazoo, while Kalamazoo track champion and two-time Michigan champion Mike “Bubba” Brooks made starts at Berlin. In 2016, those starts at both tracks will count toward the Michigan championship and the national championship.

NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Division I drivers are ranked by their best 18 NASCAR points finishes in series-sanctioned events. Drivers receive two points for every car they finish ahead of – up to 18 cars – and three points for a win, with an addition two points available if the driver starts 10th or lower. U.S. state and Canadian province titles are determined by the drivers best 18 finishes within the state or province.

With both tracks running under the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series sanction and on different nights, increases the opportunity for drivers to be ranked among the top drivers in the national standings.

“Berlin is a tremendous facility and we welcome them as part of the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series,” said Kevin Nevalainen, NASCAR director, weekly racing operations. “Gary Howe and his staff at Kalamazoo operate a first-class track, and we are looking forward to giving the weekly racers in Michigan an additional NASCAR track to compete at.”

Established in 1950 by Chester Mysliwiec, Berlin raised the bar in 2014 with a multi-million dollar facility upgrade including 11 state-of-the-art, full-service suites located along the front straightaway in an effort to continue being
recognized as one of the most prestigious racetracks in the country.

Berlin will kick off its season with its 5th Annual Icebreaker on Saturday, April 16. With $5 tickets for all ages, this event is one that always packs the stands. The Battle at Berlin 251 weekend takes place June 17-18. The Battle at Berlin hasgrown into one of the most anticipated racing events in the Midwest.

Berlin Raceway will wrap up the season on Saturday, August 27 with the Chet Championship Night and RibStock III. The champions will be crowned in all of the divisions while the third annual Kansas City Barbecue Society sanctioned barbecue event features numerous grilling teams competing for their own championship.

In addition to the Outlaw Late Model division, Berlin will run Superstock (Division II), Super Late Model (Division III), Modified (Division IV), Sportsman (Division V) and 4 Cylinder (Division VI). For more information on the 2016 season at Berlin Raceway, please visit www.berlinraceway.com.

Established in 1982, the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series is NASCAR’s national championship program for weekly short track auto racing with paved and dirt tracks throughout the United States and Canada.

Connecticut-based Whelen Engineering is the series’ title sponsor. Whelen Engineering is a leading manufacturer of automotive, aviation, industrial and emergency vehicle lighting. NASCAR tracks and pace cars across North American are among many showcases for Whelen products.

The action on Saturday, May 14th will include B-Mains, followed by the “10 Not In” Non-Qualifier Race. The top 10 drivers that did not transfer into the Buckeye Nationals (via preliminary events) will be eligible to start the $3,000-to-win, $300-to-start, non-qualifiers race – held prior to the main event.

The 75-lap, $50,000-to-win, $3,000-to-start, Buckeye Nationals main event will cap off the weekend action.

“The hard work of the entire Atomic Speedway staff has led us to be able to give the best fans in motorsports the biggest event in the track’s history. I want to thank the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series for believing in the quality of the events that we can produce at Atomic Speedway,” stated Brad McCown, Atomic Speedway Promoter.

I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, NE will host their first of two Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series events, in 2016, on Tuesday, May 24th. For tickets and more information on the 50-lap, $10,000-to-win event, visit: www.i80speedway.com.

Both events will be 40 laps, paying $6,000-to-win, $600-to-start, followed my the 100-lap, $30,000-to-win Show-Me 100 on Saturday, May 28th. The preliminary features will have more meaning than money. While some details remain to be finalized, the first 18 starters in the Show-Me 100 will be determined by the average finish from Thursday and Friday. Previously, those positions were set through time trials and heat races on a feature-less Friday.

The total purse for the weekend, which is co-sanctioned with the Lucas Oil Midwest Latemodel Racing Association (MLRA), will grow to nearly $170,000. “The evolution of the Show-Me 100, which included the addition of the popular Cowboy Classic on Thursday night, in recent years, precipitated the changes. Friday’s action, which has consisted of Show-Me 100 time trials, heat races, Manufacturers Dash and Past Champions race – but no main event – left a void,” said Lucas Oil Speedway General Manager, Dan Robinson.
