Coming Up! July 29th Is Steeple Chase Night!

Due to circumstances beyond my control, we will be instituting an $3 PPV of our live video. On Monday, we will 'unlock' it so it will be visible during the week before setting it back to a PPV set up. You can 'buy' a season pass for a $20 donation by using the 'donate' link below. If you have previously donated this season, email me for your season pass.  If you are using an Android and can't see the stream, try using the Chrome browser. See the very bottom of this page for full instructions and conditions of the PPV. Any military person who emails me from a dot service (ie. .af, .mil, etc) will get a season pass. My son was in Afghanistan and many of his friends tuned in every night. The military folks were one of the main reasons we started this way back when!

Sometimes, we are asked to do something special for our racing friends. This video was done in memory of the son of a long time friend. We are honored to help a Father remember.

Next weekend at Crystal Motor Speedway closes out July with a full slate of all seven divisions plus a steeple chase. Gates open at 4:30 PM, with racing starting about 7:30 PM. Adults are $12, kids 5-11 are $5, and pit passes are $25. Further information can be obtained by calling the track office at 989.235.5200 or visiting the website at crystalmotorspeedway.com

 

The 2017 season at Crystal Motor Speedway is off and running. We've done a lot of work and hopefully there will be no problems viewing the video stream regardless of your device. We also have a live radio setup that will be good for those who can't attend the event or watch video due to bandwidth usage on the same page. You just choose your preference! Please remember, this is an expensive situation and I need your donations to keep it going.For those unable to watch the HTML5 stream, you can watch on our Roku channel. See the link below! 


  PLEASE! I need your help!!!! Donate here.  This situation runs me about $125 a night. Your five to ten dollar donation keeps us from going Pay Per View. Thank you!

If you have a Roku, you can watch by adding our channel by going to owner.roku.com/add/BIGVROTW01 It's FREE!   If you have questions, please email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

PPV INFO:
 

We now have our PPV system set up and running. We have done a lot of testing and it seems to be working as it should. You can buy your 'ticket' for Saturday night any time now. You will have to create a user name with an eight character password and enter it on the view page to get in. We delete all user names on Monday morning and will then post the Saturday night video for no charge viewing about noon or so Monday. On Friday night, we will once again set it into PPV mode. You can keep using the same user name and password each week, but the data base will be cleared, thus sending you to the PPV site.
 
A couple things of note here. The radio portion remains live and intact. I'm not half the jerk my family tells everyone I am. After much discussion with my partner, we are doing everything we can to keep the Roku feed going at no cost. I've spent several years urging you to get a Roku to watch this stuff. Those of you who did have usually been steady donators as well. If I had enough cash on hand, I wouldn't be running a PPV in the first place, but the expenses I have run into the past 15 months have left me with nothing, thus we have a PPV.
 
Speaking of donations - if you have donated $20 or more this season, send me an email and I'll give you a free season pass. If you want to buy the season pass, donate the $20 and I'll add you. I know who most of you are, but some of you use an email that is only used for PayPal and nothing they check every day. Our system allows me to add people who will stay 'in the system' until we are done at the end of the year. Sponsors will get two free log in passes for themselves or a friend or two. If you absolutely, positively can not afford this, send me an email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  I am well aware that some people can't afford this. I've found myself in some very distressing situations since my wife's illness and if weren't for a couple friends, I'd be in huge trouble. We all need help at some point in our lives. Tell me where you stand and I'll try to accommodate you.
 
A word of warning. As I've told you a couple times, my partner is a very smart guy. You can't buy one ticket and pass it around. If you do, it will log one of you out. After a couple times of that, it will lock you out. You can however, log out of one device and then log into another as you need.
 
If you have an issue, you MUST contact me. We've done the PPV thing before. We had an entire city (out of Chicago) buy PPV passes and then 30 seconds after the game was done, I got 75 emails telling me, "Couldn't see a thing. No worries, just refund me!" If you sign up and have problems, it is on YOU to tell ME of the problem. Don't be posting on 30 threads that you can't see anything and never say anything to me and expect a refund. We will do everything we can to make this work for everyone, but I'm not playing games with people trying to scam the system. my email is This email address is being protected from spambots.

If a race is rained off, you can hold your user name for the next race OR you can tell me your user name and I'll refund you and remove you from the data base.
 

Thank you for your patience.
