We here at MARFC are very saddened at the news of the passing of long time club supporter Lee Holst. Lee was the founder and president of the Indianapolis based National Association of Auto Racing Fan Club for over 50 years. Lee was a main stay in keeping the National clubs together. The National is formed up of all the racing fan clubs through out the country nearly 59 years ago. Lee was 88 years old at the time of his passing and had attended the Indy 500 well over 65 years. His wife Mary Jo is currently the Nationals Secretary/ Treasurer and has been for many years as Lee was in office as President. Lee always made mention the he was grateful to MARFC and its members who helped support the National club and enjoyed helping us out when we needed it. Lee was a guy who always had a story or joke to tell at any given time. He will surely be missed by all who he came in contact with through out his life time. Our thoughts and prayers are with Mary Jo and the entire Holst family at this time.
