TOLEDO SPEEDWAY UPDATE: Sorry to say the Mother Nature was victorious on this night. We have rescheduled the date for August 1, 2014 this is their autograph night so come out & enjoy the evening. Thanks to Ron, Roy & Scott and the speedway for working to reschedule this event.
Outstanding weather for racing with a vast field of cars on hand in the pit area ready to go. We had many members sign in at our table that night to enjoy seeing all the racing with the vintage race cars also on hand. The MARFC Uniform/helmet bag was presented to Sport Stock #6 driver Brad Robison for his dedication of supporting the racing at the speedway. Allen Albert was the winner of our MARFC membership raffle. Special thanks to Jeff & Pam Parish & the Springport Motor Speedway for having us on their schedule once again.

Fun filled night of racing at the Crystal Motor Speedway! The MARFC Uniform/Helmet Bag was given to Late Model #66 driver Kurt Mesman for the run of hard luck he has been having lately. Our MARFC Members raffle winner was Jack Colpean Sr. As for running of the Twin Flinn that our MARFC VP & President competed in was one crazy event for sure. Both had fun during the event but didn’t quite know when the race started and who beat who after it was over. We had a fantastic time and thanks to Ron & Mary Jane Flinn and the entire staff at the speedway for hosting us again this season. MARFC table helpers for the night Doug Jakeway, Dave DeHem & Bill Barnhart! (Top: Dave with Kurt Mesman) (Middle Left: Dave Right: Wild Bill) ( Bottom: Race action photo by: Darcie Fuzi-Dubie)
Just a reminder to all MARFC Members! Remember that Ron Flinn and the Crystal Motor Speedway on the night of June 14th our Fan Club Day event Ron will be running his Twin Flinn race and your MARFC President & Vice President have been asked to compete. Oh and by the way there are two sets of cars on the track at the same time with one set running clockwise and the other running counter clockwise. Should be fun race to see! So come on out and see if we survive and who beats who! We could use some help to man our MARFC table too! See you in Victory Lane

We here at MARFC are very saddened by the news of the passing of a veteran driver Jack Varney Sr. He was one of the many Varney’s who raced at the Mt. Clemens Race Track for many years and continued to support his son Jack Jr. in all his racing venues. Jack was one great story teller and always had the time to shake your hand and say Hi! He will truly be missed by all who knew him. Our Thoughts & Prayers are with the entire Varney Family at this time. Services for Jack are as follows: Funeral services will be held at 7PM on Tuesday, June 3, 2014 at the O’Guinn Family Funeral Home in Clio. Friends may call at the funeral home on Monday from 1PM until 8PM and on Tuesday from 2PM until the time of service at 7PM. Contributions may be made to the family. O’Guinn Family Funeral Home, 503 N. Mill Street, PO Box 146, Clio, MI 48420, Phone: 810-686-5070.
