Very Important News from MARFC!

To All MARFC Members and Race Fans: We have some very disappointing news but since we here at MARFC have decided that we cannot for certain, ensure a safe and healthy environment for all that would attend our 2020 Annual Children’s Christmas Party to be held on December 6th 2020 we regrettably and unfortunately have CANCELLED.  Due to the restrictions by the local health agencies and the state that have been placed upon the hall we are using we feel that this is in the best interest and safety for all. Knowing things are looking a little better now but, we feel that it could possibly make a second lap or two before this is all said and done. We know the children will miss it very much but rest assured, we have already rescheduled this event for next December. For those who helped with donations we are incredibly grateful and have set all those donations aside to make next year’s party even better. Thank You for your understanding and sorry again to all the children!

Again, another sad announcement! Our 55 TH ANNUAL MARFC AWARDS & DINNER DANCE BANQUET set for SATURDAY JANUARY 16, 2021 unfortunately has been CANCELLED!  With most of the racing in the state of Michigan cancelled all season and only a few tracks being able to run a partial season with additionally only a few of them electing to run  for points and championships we find that in the face of all the restrictions imposed upon public venues it is not in the best interest for all concerned to move forward with a Banquet in January 2021. We here at MARFC take pride when it comes to our banquet and feel this is best for us as we will return in January 2022 to host the best racing awards banquet in the state.

We are currently working on how to honor all those 2020 champions that were crowned points champions this past season. So, stay tuned and we will have more information on how that will all work out here soon. Congratulations to all those Champions of 2020 and we will see you all at the races soon.

“God Bless” & Keep Safe!  Bill Barnhart MARFC President

MARFC Update for October 2020!

Well, all the racing in near over and for some championships were won and for others the hope of racing in 2020 were very short lived. Here’s to all who were able to race and go to the races along with all those tracks who were able to run this season. A big congratulations to all of you. As we can only hope and pray that the 2021 racing season will be bigger and better than ever. So, this will conclude our 2020 MARFC Fan Club Day Events. Terribly sorry that we did not get the chance to enjoy all racing at all our membership tracks but, with a little prayer and tons of hope next season will be back on track. Many thanks to all who did get the chance to go to any of our events and a Big Thank You to all of our speedways for their support of racing here in Michigan. Also, just a reminder of our FALL 2020 MEMBERSHIP MEETINGS: We are still a go for our fall meetings at this time! So, come out and support our club as we will be following all the protocols needed to hold these meeting. Keep checking our web site for any changes that might happen.

Owosso Speedway Reschedules MARFC for 2020!

Fantastic racing at the Owosso Speedway as MARFC members enjoy the night. First, I would like to thank both Ken & Jerry for rescheduling our fan club day event at the last minute so our members could have one more exciting night of racing this season. Also, thanks to “Big” Ed Inloes for all the help on the PA and our MARFC Uniform/Helmet Bag went to Limited Sportsman # 88 driver Hunter Forrester for his continuous support of the track. Gary Bailey was the winner of our MARFC members raffle! Manning our table for the night were Al & Kyle Peltier, Bill Walters, and John Jackson.
