CMS Public Relations January 21, 2014
(Warrensburg, MO) Pre-season events continue for CMS this weekend at the 16th Annual Bodee’s Racers Auction and Trade Show Saturday, January 25 and Sunday, January 26. Over the last few years, the vendor row portion of the trade show has become an important part of racing venues’ and race association’s pre-season preparations and with the pending re-opening of CMS in April, the track and staff are looking forward to reconnecting with members of the racing family at this highly anticipated event.
The auction and trade show takes place on the Missouri State Fairgrounds in Sedalia, Missouri in the Mathewson Center, doors open at 8 a.m. each day. CMS staff members will be on hand with schedules, car class and general track rules, special-event information, and registration forms for those visiting the CMS table. Discounted driver registration continues through February 1, 2014. This event is the last chance for drivers to save $10 in person on their registration.
Registration for the Modified, B-Modified, Street Stock, and newly added Pure Stock division is $40. For those unable to attend this weekend’s event, driver registration may be mailed in and drivers can still save $10 on their registration by visiting the CMS website at www.centralmissourispeedway.net and clicking on the Drivers link and selecting “Registration Form” from the dropdown menu. Registration increases to $50 on February 1, 2014 for the remainder of the season.
