Mother Nature had the night off and racing was outstanding.  MARFC had a lot of things going on during this night of racing.

Then we presented the track with a special 50th Anniversery plaque and Sharon Fisher accepted on behalf of owner Joe DeWitte who was in a drivers meeting at the time of the presentation (left). 


Also the club honored long time friend and one of the great race fans to racers and fans alike Doug Long with a special apperication award. 

Keep up the good work Doug! Many thanks to Joe DeWitte and Greg yost for all the support and the invite to make up our rain date at their great racing facility...

Kinross Speedway Fan Club Days – August 5, 2005

August 6, 2005 2005 MinutesUncategorized

Board member Bill Walters along with his wife Linda made the annual trek up to the ¼ mile bull ring in the U.P. 

The weather was great and so was the racing. Our MARFC Uniform/Helmet bag was given to Deon Berlin, also know by everyone as SQUEAK.  Don is a long time track worker who is always there and has been for many years and does what ever it takes to get the track ready for racing. 

Special thanks to Todd & Donna Nyberg for having us again this year and to Gerry Liscumb for making it all possible. Thanks to Walt & Patty Moore for stopping by to say Hi.
