MOTHER NATURE WINS AGAIN! Our MARFC Fan Club Day at Kalamazoo has been cancelled.  No word yet on a rain date, so keep checking our site.

We here at MARFC send our deepest sympathies to the family of Rudy Corsini who was killed in an accident at the Butler Motor Speedway last Saturday night. Our prayers go out to his family and friends at this time. Also, the club lost another long time member last month. R. Dale passed away & we send our thoughts and prayers to his family at this time. We wish them both God’s Speed! 

If you didn’t attend our 2nd Annual MARFC Family Picnic you missed out big time. We had lots of food with games and tons of prizes for all. Special thanks to everyone who brought a dish to pass and the extra prizes donated for the event. 

Be sure to make plans on attending...

Although the Crystal Motor Speedway Fan Club Day on July 2 was eventually washed out, the evening got underway with the presentation of the MARFC Uniform/Helmet Bag by Crystal’s own Ron Flinn, who chose Brennan Bowen to receive the MARFC Bag o Goodies for the fine work he has done in raising money for Juvenile Diabetes. See story below.
