Seasons Greetings MARFC Members, From all of us on the Board of Directors and Executive Board of the Michigan Automobile Racing Fan Club we wish to you the Merriest of Christmas’s, The Happiest of Holidays and the Happiest of New Years. May the season bring you peace, comfort, joy, and prosperity. While many of us are filled with the joy of the Holiday Season, let us all take a moment to reflect on and remember those that we have lost over the course of this past year and think of them with a good thought and a prayer as well as their families that they left behind. Until we see you at the races again, have a safe and healthy winter.

Yours in Racing, Dave DeHem MARFC President

We had another great meeting at Papio’s Food & Sprits in Reese Michigan this past November 10th. Greg and the staff at Papio’s gave us one side of the restaurant and with two servers the food was coming quick, hot, and good. Our first speaker of the day was Dave Hausebeck, the owner/promoter of the Arthur Raceway in Reese. For those of you that are maybe not familiar with the Arthur Raceway, it is located in Reese on M-15 ½ mile south of M-81 behind DHT Trucking and is a 1/8 mile clay oval that is set-up for Go Karts and features 10 different classes of karts with drivers ranging from the 5 years old to the, well, let’s just say capable of getting discounts. Racing action starts at 4 PM on Saturdays from early April to late September with practice starting at 2:30 PM...

December President Thoughts!

November 27, 2012 2012 MinutesUncategorized

As I write this it is the day after Thanksgiving and I am upstairs in the office pondering and remembering. Yes, the Christmas season is upon us and with it comes the shopping and the over eating and the parties, and the celebrations. Be safe and enjoy yourself but also I ask that you stop and take a look around to look in the children’s eyes to see the awe and wonderment they hold as they look at the Christmas tree or see Santa Claus.  I am thankful for our tracks, our drivers, our fans, and for all those that I had the opportunity to speak with or watch a race with this past year and look forward to doing more of that in the coming year. With all that said, from my family to your family and from our Board of Directors I say, “Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year”...
