FROM THE DESK OF THE PRESIDENT

Another great banquet!  It was great to see some of our long time charter members attend like Willis & Marian Flokstra, who along with Vito LoPiccolo, founded our club nearly 37 years ago.  Glad to see some of my old Mt. Clemens Race Track friends again.  Met so many new champions again this year it’s hard to remember them all.  Was sorry that “Bear” Ackles from the Butler Motor Speedway was unable to come and be our Master of Ceremonies this year.  At the last minute he came down with a bad flu bug.  I hope that he is feeling better.  A speedy recovery goes out to Owner/Promoter Ron Flinn of Crystal Motor Speedway.  Ron had surgery on his leg last month after a fall.

Keep checking back for more information on upcoming Fan Club Days...
