FROM THE DESK OF THE PRESIDENT
This month is going to be a very busy one for us here at MARFC. I would like to take this opportunity to send a very special thanks to Roger Blackstock for once again giving MARFC national exposure by running our logo on his Hooters Cup Series Dodge this year. Currently Roger is running 11th in points. Even his souvenir T-shirts have our logo on it.
Thanks Roger for your continued support.
