We here at MARFC send our thoughts & prayers to long time member Steve Lee and his family for the loss of Steve’s father Wayne. Wayne was the first in the family to get started racing and with his support both Steve and his son Eric have gone on to win Championships over the years. MARFC has also lost one of it long time members from the Erie Pennsylvania area Lewis Butler.
Lew passed away on June 14, 2006 he had always supported our club even though he was living in PA. He had attended the Indy 500 for over 50 years and always attended our Annual Convention as a MARFC member. Both Lew and Wayne will be truly missed by all who know and meet them. “God’s Speed” to you both.

Just a quick message from Vito LoPiccolo...

Mother Nature is once again doing all she can to prevent us from having a great 2006 racing season. Many tracks have had several rain outs or rain shorted events this season. We need to remember to thank all the tracks for all they do to keep local racing alive here in Michigan. There are so many great racing facilities that have closed up do to high insurance rates, pressure from home owners who build right next to a speedway, along with many other concerns that make it hard to keep the doors open. I myself am asking that all of our members take the time to say THANK YOU to all of our membership tracks and those who are not members of our club also. It is up to us to help keep local racing alive not only here in Michigan but across the country...

MARFC has lost a member of its family. Long time Board Member and former Secretary Treasurer Adele Spence has passed away this passed Sunday. Adele and her late husband Al were some of the early charter members of our club.

Adele was a big help in years passed during our Annual Children’s Christmas parties and supported our MARFC fund-raiser raffle. After Al’s passing a few years back she moved up to the Houghton Lake area to be with her daughter and her family. She will truly be missed by all who meet and knew her. Our prayers are with her family at this time. “God Bless”

From the President

Knowing that gas prices are going to have a great effect on where we all go to attend races this season. Don’t forget the fan club days at all the tracks that we have on our 2006 schedule...

May all of the promoters as well as racers and fans have an outstanding 2006 racing season.

We here at MARFC send our deepest sympathies to the family of John Stout who we just learned passed away a few months ago. John was a long time member and supporter of our club he will be missed deeply. Our prayers are with his wife Jeannie and his family. “God’s Speed” to you John!
