MARFC AT TRI-CITY MOTOR SPEEDWAY 2017!

Mother Nature tried very hard to dampen our night at the Tri-City Motor Speedway. Yet with a very large car count and packed grand stands with season Championship being crowned made for a great night for our members as well as all the other fans who attended. Street Stock # 91 driver Gary Shank Jr. was chosen to receive our MARFC Uniform/Helmet bag for having some hard luck earlier in the season. MARFC members raffle was won by Bob Bergevin. Once again, a very large thank you to Steve & Erika and the speedway for rescheduling our event on such a fantastic night of racing for all. Table helpers for the evening were Doug Jakeway, Barry Meschke, John Jackson, Larry & Kenny Letts and myself. Can’t wait to return again in 2018!

MARFC ON THE ROADCORSE AT WATERFORD HILLS RACEWAY:

MARFC members saw some great vintage racing on Sunday afternoon at the picturesque Waterford Hills 1.5 mile road racing track in Clarkston, Michigan. On track in wheel to wheel racing action were some very cool vintage race cars competing in 5 different race groups. From MG to Porsche, Corvette to Formula cars, there was something for everyone. Special guest of honor, Porsche racer and 356 expert, Vic Skirmants, was on hand competing in his #70 Porsche 356 roadster. MARFC Board members Rand Thompson & John Jackson were on hand to award the MARFC Helmet bag to Corvette racer Jonathan Pfeffer from Indianapolis.  Rand & John even got to drive the track in Rand’s vintage 1973 Mercury Capri!  (Photo Top:L to R)   Waterford Hills racer extraordinaire & ambassador Danny Kellermeyer,  bag recipient Jonathan Pfeffer,  MARFC board member Rand Thompson, and Jonathan’s dad Robert, who was also racing a Corvette). (Photo Bottom: Kyle Bergeon in his Porsche leads the Corvettes of Jonathan Pfeffer #93 and Danny Kellermeyer #37 during the Group 5 feature race) Photos & Report by Rand Thompson!
