FROM THE DESK OF THE PRESIDENT

 

Let me take a minute and talk about Sportsmanship. We are all race fans and competitors and being part of  a group such as ours Sportsmanship is just part of the deal. When a driver has a bad day starting off with a crash during practice and his car is a mess it is great to see others give a helping hand to see that he gets the chance to race that night. That’s Sportsmanship!  Fans who band together to help raise funds for a injured driver no matter if they like or dislike that driver.  That’s Sportsmanship!  During a race drivers are aggressive and Sportsmanship is pushed to the limits but, in most cases it is a matter of give and take.  Other times Sportsmanship just goes out the window and that is what make our sport look bad.  So as fans and competitors I encourage all members of MARFC, as well as everyone in our sport to remember that Sportsmanship makes for the best racing around.  This is just one race fans opinion.

Until next month,

Bill Barnhart
President MARFC
