CMS Public Relations
April 19, 2017
(Warrensburg, MO) Without question, Central Missouri Speedway (CMS) is coming off its strongest opening night in the track’s 22 years of existence with Earl and Susan Walls at the helm! When all five winning drivers from week one mention how good the track was, and without being prompted to do so, you know it was a grand way to begin the 2017 season.
It wasn’t just the drivers who gave praise, social media was a buzz for days after the CMS opener from fans in the stands. It was a near-perfect night last weekend as 90 cars made their way to CMS in five divisions, USRA Modifieds, Street Stocks, Mod-Lites, USRA B-Mods, and Pure Stocks. A total of 19 events made up the program last week as Jim Moody in USRA Modifieds, Clayton Campbell in Street Stocks, David Raffurty in Mod-Lites, Jake Richards in USRA B-Mods, and Jason Ryun in Pure Stocks, all drove to opening night victories!
Before last week’s events began, Don Johnson in Pure Stocks, Bob Nakoneczny, Kevin White in Mod-Lites, Rob Hardwick in Street Stocks, and Brian Johnson in USRA Modifieds, were recognized by RE/MAX United Realty’s Chuck Barlow with “Best in Show” plaques for displaying their cars at the recent 5th Annual CMS Car Show.
Weekly racing resumes Saturday evening at CMS with pits opening at 4:30, grandstands at 5 and racing at 7:30. General admission adults $12, Military w/I.D. and Seniors 65 to 74 $10, kids ages six to twelve $5, five years and under are free, seniors 75 and older are also free. Seniors 80 and older may receive free pit admission courtesy of promoter Earl Walls, who recently celebrated his own 80th birthday! All pit passes $30.
CMS is located 3.5-miles north of Warrensburg, MO from the junction of Highways 50 and 13 in Warrensburg just north of the new Hwy 13 by-pass round-a-bout, or from the Higginsville exit off I-70, head south on Highway 13 for twelve and half miles.
