Attention MARFC members!

The Board of Directors is in need of your assistance! We are looking for our 2010 MARFC Mechanic of the Year winner and are asking you to give us some people who you think would fall into this venue. We are looking for someone who has done an outstanding job preparing and maintaining a championship winning race car for 2010.

What a great night of racing at the Flat Rock Speedway on August 28th. Our friends at “The Rock” gave us another night after losing out to Mother Nature on June 5th. Longtime Club member Mt. Clemens “Old Timer” Doug Parsells was our MARFC Member Drawing winner. Doug has been a Flat Rock and MARFC supporter for many many years. It was great to see lifelong race fan and former MARFC Board Member Bill Palmer out at the races this night as Bill has been under the weather for a quite while but was able to get out and enjoy a night at the races with his son and Board Member Jeff Moroni. Back in June we had been able to present the MARFC Helmet Bag to Harold Davis Jr. So we were able to just plain have a night to enjoy the races...

September President’s thoughts!

September 1, 2010 2010 MinutesUncategorized

Well, our fan club days are all but done for the year and season championships have all but been wrapped up so it looks like we are in the twilight of yet another racing season. I will say that it has been a great season with plenty of hot weather although we have had our share of rain. Good for farming but bad for racing. We were able to welcome in the Whittemore Speedway and welcome back the Springport Motor Speedway this year and returned to so many of our longtime member tracks. I wish to say Thank You to all of our tracks that hosted a MARFC Day this past summer we really appreciated it and had a blast. As we move on into the fall, we want to remind you to sell your raffle tickets and if you need anymore don’t hesitate to call me at 586-465-7046 and I’ll get you some more...
