MARFC Attends Spring 2017 MSPA Meeting:

Earlier this  month MARFC board members attended the spring annual meeting of the Michigan Speedway Promoters Association that meets twice a year to discuss the ongoing concerns of running a speedway with, insurance, how to get more fans and bigger car counts along with discussing how to make rules a line between the different tracks. Believe it or not they are working hard to keep our sport alive and help the fans, car owners, and drivers continue to move forward in racing her in Michigan. Kalamazoo Speedway was chosen by the MSPA as its 2016 Promoter of the Year Award and owner Gary Howe was very thankful for this honor by his fellow track owners.

February 2017 MARFC Meeting Report!

Small but very enlightened meeting for those who turned out for our February MARFC meeting. Our guest speaker was unable to attend do to last minute issues. So, we did a round robin type of storytelling of how each person go started in racing as a fan or racer. It went quick well for all who were there. Then we went from our meeting room into the Gratiot Huddle Sports Bar & Grill across the hall & were ready to watch the Clash on TV until it got rain delayed to the next day.(Photo Top  MARFC Members Larry & Sue Iacoboni with 2017 MARFC Fan of the Year winner John Jackson)  (Photo Middle: Members Jeff Horan & Doug & Karen Spodeck) (Photo bottom: Member “Big Al” Peltier)
