WARRENSBURG, Mo.—This Saturday at CMS is Cliff Harris Warrensburg Ford Night featuring Weekly Racing in all divisions plus the return of the Midwest Mod Lites! Action gets underway with pit gates opening at opening at 4:30 followed by Spectator Gates at 5. Driver Pill Draw Cutoff is 6:15 (no passing points for late-arriving drivers). The Pit Meeting takes place at 6:30, Hot Laps roll off at 7, and Racing begins at 7:30.

Last week, CMS resumed action with feature victories going to Chad Lyle in USRA Modifieds, Clayton Campbell in Street Stocks, Jacob Ebert in B-Mods, and Gary Akers in the Pure Stocks. Joining those four classes this week are the Midwest Mod-Lites, with the first of several CMS dates for the group. Ed Griggs and Donnie Dannar, both former Modified driver sat CMS are two of the drivers looking forward to returning to CMS action, this time in Mod-Lite competition.

After three weeks of competition, the championship point standings in each division are starting to take shape. In USRA Modified action, Kevin Blackburn of Fulton, Missouri and son of two-time CMS Modified Champion Gary Blackburn, Jr., has taken over the lead in the standings by just 18 points over defending champion Terry Schultz. Gunner Martin, Tim Karrick, and Shad Badder round out the top five.

Just two more regular race weeks are scheduled before the first Summer Holiday and Special Events Racing at CMS for the 2016 season. CMS recently added detailed event information to the track’s website at Once on the site, look for the “Memorial Day Weekend Info” tab, which includes information on purses throughout the weekend, admission prices, start times, and much more!

USRA Modified drivers should take note of the special bonuses offered by promoters Earl and Susan Walls for the big three summer holiday special events. For any driver who wins the Memorial Day $3,000-to-win race and then also wins the Tom Wilson Memorial over Independence Day weekend, and then goes on to win the $3,000-to-win race later in the year over Labor Day weekend, they will earn a $5,000 bonus for the clean sweep! If you add the base purse “to win” money for the three events together it totals $11,000, now add on another $7,500 in bonus money and that totals a whopping possible $18,500 going to a driver who sweeps all three events. However, there’s still a $2,500 bonus for any driver that doubles up and wins any two of the three big-money events this summer.
