Hello Race Fans,
 
Just wanted to wish all of you a happy and safe Fourth of July. Happy Birthday America, Let Freedom Ring. If your plans include racing have a great time, if not, be safe and enjoy whatever it is that you are going to do today. It’s hot so drink plenty of water in addition to anything else you might drink today.
 
Our next Fan Club Day is on Friday July 13, 2012 at the Tri-City Motor Speedway with a date at Whittemore the very next night. Until then, get out and support your local race track.
 
Yours in Racing,

MARFC Day at Owosso Speedway!

July 1, 2012 2012 MinutesUncategorized

On June 30, 2012 the club was the guests of Rick and Jennie Miracle at the Historic Owosso Speedway. A great night of racing on a very hot summer night that saw excellent racing action in all the divisions of the night! The MARFC Helmet Bag was given to Limited Late Model Driver Tony Basalone in recognition of his dedication to the Owosso Speedway as well as the multiple championships He has won at the speedway in the Pro-Stock/Sportsman type of race car before moving up to the Late Models this season. Tony has always been a front running and clean driver that gives no less than 100 % effort each night of racing. In addition Tony has been an honoree at the MARFC Banquet on a few occasions. Our MARFC Member Raffle prize winner was young Logan Fischer who was out for a night at the races...

Springport Motor Speedway hosts MARFC Event!

June 28, 2012 2012 MinutesUncategorized

June 23rd saw the club make its way to the center of the state and a full program at the Springport Motor Speedway. Club members were not only treated to a fantastic night of racing that also saw a vintage race car show on the race track as well as a MARFC Social/Pot-Luck/Picnic prior to the night’s races. We had a great turnout for this event with some really great tasting dishes that were passed around. The club provided the Burgers-n-Dogs while the Speedway provided the ambience and facility. If you missed it you missed some really good food and some great bench racing before a night of competitive stock car racing.  The recipient of the MARFC Helmet Bag was the racing team of George Speer and Shane Wright, drivers of the #3 and #8 ABC Stock Cars...

Thoughts from the President for July 2012!

June 28, 2012 2012 MinutesUncategorized

It is has been a warm one lately but there has also been a lot of rain hampering all of our speedways from getting in some racing. Great during the week but nasty on Friday and Saturday. Hopefully this cycle will change and we can settle in to the regular rhythm of visiting our tracks every weekend. We have a fantastic line-up for July and August so be sure to get out to some of these fan club days and enjoy the benefits of your membership.

This month we will be making our first trip ever to The Waterford Hills Road Racing Track in Waterford Hills. This is truly a great big step forward as they are the first road racers to come on board with our predominantly oval track crowd. This will be a day to just come out to the track and enjoy the races...
