Whittmore Fan Club Day
July 17 saw the club head to Michigan’s Oldest Speedway, the Whittemore Speedway in Whittemore, Michigan. 18 members signed in for our first ever night here which was exceptional, especially since many of them had never been to the track before. The racing was exceptional and very exciting with Spartan Bag Winner Earl “The Pearl” Miles taking the win each time the car hit the track. Our MARFC Bag recipient this week was longtime Limited Late Model Driver Pierre LaTienne. Pierre is a past president of the Whittemore Racing Club and has been selected in prior years as Sportsman of the Year. The bag may have been good luck as Pierre promptly went out and won his first heat race of the year.Betty Timbs was the MARFC member raffle prize winner and table helpers were Sue Ginter and Julie DeHem. All in all it was a great night of racing and many thanks to Andy Hess the President of the Whittemore Racing Club and the rest of the Board of Directors, staff, and fans of the Whittemore Speedway for having the club out and being a partner to the Michigan Auto Racing Fan Club.
