8th Annual MARFC Picnic


July 10, 2011 gave us another red letter day to hold the annual MARFC Picnic. The weather was hot, the food was great and over 50 people young and old came to Stoney Creek to enjoy a day of bench racing, camaraderie, some great burgers, dogs, and salads as well as a bunch of fantastic games. Word has it that the President and Vice President even had a small water balloon fight. I think that Wild Bill got a bit wetter than me. It was a great day and all the kids had a blast.




Long Time MARFC Member Passes!

Word was recently received that longtime MARFC Member Larry VanDuesen has passed away.  Larry and Kathy have been MARFC members for a number of years.  While many of us knew Larry what He was  really well known for is his 38 years of service at the Owosso Speedway where he met the love of his life, Kathy (McClung) VanDuesen. Larry and Kathy were married on May 20, 1972 and were blessed with a Son, Jason and Daughters, Lisa and Amy. Larry loved his racing as well as his work at the Owosso Speedway and His and Kathy’s face were a couple of the first people you would see upon arrival. Larry also loved to work in his flower garden as well as decorating the family home for holidays.

Larry passed from this life on June 14, 2011 with services held on June 18, 2011 in St. Johns, Michigan. God Speed Larry, Thank You for being a part of so many people’s life’s and all of us at MARFC pass our condolences on to Kathy and the rest of Larry’s family.
