October thoughts from the President!

October 9, 2011 2011 MinutesUncategorized

Well, here we are staring down the throat of the autumn season. There are still a few special shows on tap so get out and see one before all of our race tracks are shuttered for the winter. It was a great year at the tracks and I enjoyed seeing how many of you took advantage of our MARFC Fan Club Days. There were quite a few of you that made nearly every show and that is just super. Both personally and for all of our members I want to say Thank You to all of our member tracks for supporting us and having us out. We are really blessed in Michigan to have so many tracks running on a weekly basis and for the Fan Club days that these tracks give to all of our members...

Third time a Charm for MARFC at Auto City!

September 27, 2011 2011 MinutesUncategorized

autocitywebSeptember 17, 2011 Auto City Speedway Well, Mother Nature decided that this was going to be a great day and night for racing and to decide Auto City’s Champions. The MARFC Helmet Bag was presented to longtime competitor, MARFC Member and supporter and Michigan Motor Sports Hall of Fame Driver and ageless veteran, Jay Woolworth. Jay and his family have been huge supporters of racing at Auto City as well as many area tracks. Jay started out the night with a win in his heat race but unfortunately, a burnt wheel bearing sidelined him halfway through the feature race while making his way to the front of the pack. Jack Davis was our MARFC Member raffle winner. Thanks to Bob Ryder and Barry Meschke for helping out at the membership table...

Rain Date for Owosso Speedway works out great!

September 4, 2011 2011 MinutesUncategorized

August 27th turned out to be a much better night for racing than our originally scheduled night, earlier in the season that got rained out. In addition to the weather being great, the club was also treated to the “Harold Morence Memorial” 54 lap Pro-Late Model feature race. It was a special night for the Morence family as Harold had been a huge supporter of the Owosso Speedway for many years, beginning his racing career there in 1964. Harold was known especially for having a perfect attendance record for 20 consecutive racing seasons. The racing action was full of action and fast paced in all divisions with some great finishes. Our MARFC Helmet bag went to the driver of the #2 Pro Late Model, Jimmy O’Smith who himself has quite a long career at the Owosso Speedway...

MARFC Returns to Tri-City Motor Speedway!

September 4, 2011 2011 MinutesUncategorized

 

August 26th took the club back to a venue that we haven’t been at since 2004; in fact, nobody has been at the venue since 2004 as Tri-City has been shut down since then. However, The Puvalowski Brothers have done a fantastic job at raising the Phoenix from the ashes and have completely revamped, redesigned and recreated the Tri City Speedway in Auburn, Michigan. While the famed and historic 5/8 Mile 5 turn Trick Track still remains, the real deal at this rejuvenated speedway is the 3/8 mile dirt track that fills the infield where the old high banked quarter mile used to be...
