August 2, 2012 2012 MinutesUncategorized

 (Board Member Chuck Horan & Jeff Owens)

July 21st took us to the Auto City Speedway where the MARFC Helmet Bag was given to 2011 ACSS Champion Jeff Owens. Jeff has been a long time competitor at the speedway as well as a fantastic supporter of the division. Megan Bolt was our member raffle winner and Board Member Chuck Horan and club member Bob Ryder were our table helpers for the night. This was our re-scheduled night as the original night in May was rained out. MARFC Members were treated to the Tommy Bowles Memorial for the MCR Dwarf Cars. Many will remember “Ten Grand Tommy” Bowles as one of the leading Late Model pilots in the state. Tommy lost his life while in Florida driving a dwarf Car and this group puts on this special race at Tommy’s home track every year...

Word has been received that the Father of Rob Michon’s wife Lisa has passed away. Many will remember Rob as a former Vice President of MARFC and long time webmaster for the club.

Lisa had arranged for the MARFC Kid’s Christmas Party to be at the Owen-Jax Recreation center for many years prior to moving out of state last year and both Rob and Lisa had been active in MARFC and area racing events.
