    Thumbs up 2018 CMS Donation Drive to Help Cover our Costs and Expenses for the Site Assets

    Hello Everyone. As most of you know, CMS is a donation only community. This means that we do not require anyone here to pay to race and we dont have ads or sponsors on our website that are controlling how we run the community. This helps give us full control to make this a racers and peoples community first without outside influence. We do however, use donations from community members to help with our costs associated with running things, because it does cost money to keep a website of this size rolling each year.

    As we have grown over the years, our costs have risen, and it is currently costing us about $2750.00 per year to run the community.

    With this said, I have enabled the donation system on the website in hope of raising some funds to assist with the costs of the various things we need to maintain. We have set a goal to hopefully raise $1500 between now and January 15th 2018. Note, we've already received $1500, this year from ad-hoc donations. Thank you all for the unsolicited donations thusfar!

    If most members make even a small donation we can get there. Your help is much appreciated.

    You can easily donate using paypal which takes less than 5 minutes.
    For starters there is a paypal button on the main page at
    Champion Motorsports


    Additionally we have enabled the donation bar in the forums which will show progress towards our goal. You can donate via the forum links and donate buttons.

    Finally if you wish to donate another way, you may contact me via Private Message if paypal is not an option for you.

    Thank you all so much for supporting CMS, your donations help make all of this possible.

    Here is a detailed list of things donations go towards

    Website Hosting
    Domain Registration
    VPS Dedicated Hosted Server for increased capacity and performance
    vBulletin Software for portal
    VBSEO optimizations for search engines and spam management

    David maybe I'm blind besides deaf, but I can't find the Paypal button on the front page.
    I see the "Donate" link above but wanted you to know about the Paypal button

    Never let up for a second....or that may be where you finish!

    By the way we are already after 1 day less than $1200 dollars away from our goal! So it's really easy when everyone pitches in a bit. Rock on!

    Donated, I should probably start racing with you guys again instead of creeping on the site all the time. But that's all on me, no excuses.

    LOL Mike, Thank you for your support -- and we all go through times of racing like crazy versus balancing real life -- so it's all good.
