MARFC Treks North To Onaway Speedway!

August 22, 2014 2014 MinutesUncategorized

Onawayweb1The DuBois family chose Brian Baumgarten to receive the helmet uniform bag.  Brian’s #100 Modified is in first place in points as of 8-9.  It was a great night of racing and entertainment.  As a salute to our Veterans, there were 3 military vehicles on the track. Two trucks carried gave the fans on trips around the track. There was also a large tanker.  Once all the fans had their on-track experience, the flagman turned the military vehicles loose and there was a lot of excitement as they passed each other while flashing lights and blowing horns.  After the evening’s regular racing concluded, the trailer racing began.  There is no way to describe it.  It is best to attend Onaway’s Fan Club night in person...
