Paul Zimmerman

I am sorry to report the passing of longtime Promoter/Owner of the Spartan Speedway Paul Zimmerman.  All of us here at MARFC express our condolences to Paul’s family and friends. “Poor Paul” was a great friend not only to MARFC but to the entire sport as well and really put his heart and soul into Spartan as well as the Springport Speedway. On a personal note I was able to work with him through my association with MARFC and Michigan Legends Cars as well as to serve along with him on the Board of Directors of the Michigan Motor Sports Hall of Fame.

MARFC in MT. Clemens Christmas Parade!

December 12, 2010 2010 MinutesUncategorized


Once again the Michigan Auto Racing Fan Club was invited to be a part of the Annual Mt. Clemens Christmas Parade for 2010. Our chairperson for this event was board member Laura Tucker who worked to get us Jeff Metdepenningen’s ARCA Flat Rock Enduro and Factory Stock car to have on display for this year’s parade. Very cold temps and fast paced winds made for a quick paced parade. Many thanks to all who marched in the parade and help support our club. Volunteers were: Jeff & Kyle Metedpenningen, Scott Menlen, Steve Stein, Chuck & Jeff Horan, Laura Tucker, Bill Walters, and Larry Iacoboni.
