The 2017 race season begins this Saturday, April 15, at the Central Missouri Speedway in five weekly racing classes including USRA Modifieds and Out-Pace USRA B-Mods, plus Street Stocks, Mod-Lites and Pure Stocks. After another successful pre-season car show and practice session, in which 50 race teams showed up to test and tune their race cars for the season, it’s time to get down to business!

Drivers and fans will be greeted to a revamped track surface as 40 loads of clay were added after last season was completed. Attendees will also notice ongoing construction on the CMS Party Barn as renovations on the building continue for a grand-opening later in the season in May.

For the first time at CMS, B-Mod drivers have a chance to compete for valuable and coveted USRA national points in the Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series. With last year’s average car count in the B-Mod division over 20 every week, it only made sense for drivers to have a shot at USRA national points, and with the addition of CMS into the equation there could be a changing of the guard in who competes weekly and who drops in from time-to-time to collect points in the ultra-competitive class.

Family fun will also be on the program this weekend as the Dairy Queen Grill & Chill and Zaxby’s Restaurant mascots will entertain the kids for some extra fun on opening night. Pits gates open at 4:30, grandstands at 5 with a pit meeting 6:30, hot laps at 7 and racing beginning 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 are $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.
