December 2005 

Once again all of the racing is done for 2005, the Champions are being crowned, and new cars are in the works for some as repairing the old one is for others. Christmas will soon be here and I think it’s time we look back on 2005 and thank the good Lord for all we have...

September 30, 2005 2005 MinutesUncategorized

The Michigan Auto Racing Fan Club has just learned of the passing of the Mother of Eddie Sachs Jr.  Nance’ was the wife of the late Eddie Sachs who was killed in the 1964 Indy 500 race.  Personally Nance’ was a grand lady & great friend to me and my family.  She lived life to the fullest and enjoyed all she meet.  We here at MARFC sent our Deepest Sympathies to Eddie and his family at this time and wish Nance’, “God’s Speed”.

Hurricane Katrina Relief

September 23, 2005 2005 MinutesUncategorized

ATTENTION ALL MARFC MEMBERS!

We here at MARFC are working with both the Driven Women organization and Focus Motorsports Ministries in taking donations for the hurricane relief fund at the Toledo Speedway fan club day event on Saturday September 24, 2005.

We will be collecting donations both in the pit area as well as in the grandstands throughout the evening. We are asking our members who save a few dollars at the gate to please help at the donation table. Stop by and give your support in this venue as a MARFC member.

These folks have been through alot and have lost everything and I think we can help. All three groups are working to see that these people get as much help as we can send.

I Thank You in advance for supporting the event and our club.

BILL BARNHART
PRESIDENT MARFC

President’s Desk – September 2005

September 1, 2005 2005 MinutesUncategorized

On September 25, 2005 our club will be officailly 40 years old. There were some doubts that we’d make it to five or even ten years. But, look at us now!  We are currently just over 1,200 members strong all across the state and with members in other states as well as a few Canadian members to boot. We have 14 membership tracks as well as many other racing series who are also members of our club. 

I think we all should stand up and take a bow and give ourselves a big round of applause for making our organization as great as it is today. I personally thank all of you for your continued support through out the time that I have been President...
