From the President

With the holiday season coming upon us later this month we here at MARFC send out a “Very Merry Christmas” and a “Happy New Year” to all of our members across the state and country. May God Bless and keep us all safe throughout this holiday season. It has been a busy month and I am sure that with our gala banquet just about 6 weeks away it will get a lot busier. I look forward to seeing you all at the banquet. Remember to get your ticket order in by January 6, 2010 so you don’t miss out on any of the festivities.

We had a great day at the Mt. Clemens Santa Parade and I will have pictures and details in next month’s update as well as pictures from Santa’s visit to the kids at our Kid’s Christmas Party.

As I look back at the year that has passed us by so qu...

From the President

As we move into the holiday season I am once again reminded of how thankful I am for this great country we live in and the freedoms that it allows us. I am grateful that we are able to enjoy and take part in this great sport of automobile racing. Whether we are a NASCAR fan, a short track fan, an open wheel fan, and whether we like road courses, drag racing, or oval tracks we are all bound together by the thrill, the sights, the sounds, the smells, and the atmosphere found at any of the many racing venues we have access to.

I am also very thankful to all of our members, our member tracks, and all of our supporters that keep this great club moving forward. Take the time to be safe this winter and also to enjoy those around you for the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday...

From the President

Well here we are again, fall and the end of the racing season as we know it and the beginning of, or at least the middle of specials season. If you take away the bad weather it seemed like a pretty good racing season was had in spite of the sour economy here in Michigan. Most of the tracks I visited had decent fan counts at least the nights that I was there. I got to see a ton of racing at a variety of different tracks from ¼ mile D-ovals in Canada to a few half miles, ¼ miles, 1/3 and 3/8 mile tracks both dirt and asphalt. As I look back over the season all I can say is that I had a blast and Thank You to all of our member tracks for having us out for a night at the races and Thank you to all of our members who showed up at all these great tracks and supported the club...
