CMS utilizes RaceCeiver one-way radios for all events. Drivers will wear an earpiece connected to the RaceCeiver during pre-race competition while in staging, during races, and post-race. A designated CMS official will communicate instructions to drivers during yellow-flag caution or red-flag periods to speed up line-up procedures, warn of possible hazards, and give lap counts. Drivers failing to adhere to verbal instructions given by designated official(s) will not be scored for the race and will be sent off of the racing surface. RaceCeivers may be purchased at the speedway on a weekly basis. Drivers must provide their own ear piece for the one-way communication. Earpieces are available for purchase and RaceCeivers are available for rental at the speedway.
Central Missouri Speedway (CMS) is a high banked 3/8-Mile (on the outside) Clay Oval track located 3.5 miles north of Warrensburg, Missouri off of Highway 13.
Weekly racing takes place on Saturday nights from April to September in four divisions: 'Mighty' Modifieds (USRA), Street Stocks, B-Modifieds and Pure Stocks. CMS hosts special events racing on the "Big 3" summer holiday weekends: Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day weekend. See the schedule of events rom the main page for complete details.
There are two general admission grandstand areas, one on the "front" side of the speedway where the flagman and and announcer's tower are located and the other on the "pit" side of the speedway, where drivers check in and stage from their pit stalls. There is a full concessionaire stand available for those in the grandstand and pit area as well as modern restrooms. The front-side grandstand features grandstand seating running the entire length of the front straightaway from turn four to turn one. The official scoring and announcer's tower as well as the flagging stand are located on the front side of the speedway, which is adjacent to Highway 13. The steeple barn concessionaire on the front side features a wide range of food and beverages, including alcoholic beverages (must be 21 and have I.D. ready to purchase and consume alcohol at CMS). The track PA system is heard throughout the speedway on both the front and pit sides of the speedway. There is plenty of parking on either side of the speedway. Remember to lock your vehicles at all times, CMS is not responsible for personal, lost, damaged, or stolen items.
Outside food, beverages, and coolers are NOT permitted! Everyone must have an admission ticket or pit pass to enter the grandstand and pit areas, no exceptions!
The pit area is large and grass covered and has a wide lane that runs in an oval shape throughout the area. Upon entering the pit area, competitors will have several options for parking their race hauler/trailer, including the first row to the right and along the perimeter fence, the side row along the side perimeter fence, the back row along the edge of the cut grass, and the island pit area, which is the center of the pit area. Pit areas are not assigned and are available on a first come, first available basis. There is a pit PA system available; however, drivers and crewmen are urged to frequently check the lineup board at the registration tower for event details while races are taking place. DO NOT RELY SOLELY UPON THE PIT PA SYSTEM FOR RACE INSTRUCTIONS! See the directions link for an aerial view of the track.
Primitive Camping is allowed, please call in advance for arrangements: Track Phone 660-747-2166 / Office 816-229-1338. There are no dump sites on the grounds. All campers must clean up after themselves and keep their camping area free of debris and clutter while staying on the CMS grounds.
Upon paying for your mandatory pit pass at the pit entrance, drivers will pill draw for their designated preliminary starting position for the night's competition (unless otherwise announced). Drivers will then need to find their chosen pit area for the evening and then immediately report to the registration tower (located on the north side of the pitside concessions stand) for check-in with the tower pit steward. New drivers will be required to pay the required CMS registration fee and complete related forms. CMS uses the passing points system to determine race lineups.
You will find no other speedway that treats every driver the same no matter what class they compete in, what their last name is, or where they are from! Everyone is an equal at CMS, we do not play favorites! The CMS motto is "fast, fair, and fun for everyone" and we stick to this motto during our race programs. Upon registering a rulebook is offered to every driver and CMS encourages everyone to familiarize themselves with the rules. At CMS, the rulebook is enforced and the race program moves along quickly. Drivers need to be prepared and ensure they pay attention to the information board throughout the evening, the board is located at the pit registration tower connected to the pitside concessions stand.
