FROM THE DESK OF THE PRESIDENT

 

As the Holiday season is coming upon us and banquet season approaches we must stop and say thank you to all who donated their time and racing facilities in support of the Michigan Auto Racing Fan Club.  With out your continuous support we would not be able to have our membership grow. As our club continues to grow we look forward to a long and lasting relationship with all of our membership tracks and supporters.

 

November is the month for giving thanks and we give thanks once again to all of you.

 

As Always, Keep Racing,

Many of our members have e-mail addresses and we would like to try and cut our costs on monthly postage.  If you all could send me your e-mail address even if I all ready have it on file or if you have a new address please contact me with it.  If we could get most of you to accept just the e-mail version of the MARFC MESSENGER each month if would save us dollars in the long run.  But, If you wish to still receive both please let me know ASAP.  Please be sure to contact me if you change your e-mail address or home address so either one can make it to you each month.  By the way yearly renewals are coming up in December so renew your membership early.

Thanks and as always keep racing.

FROM THE DESK OF THE PRESIDENT

Let me take a minute and talk about Sportsmanship. We are all race fans and competitors and being part of  a group such as ours Sportsmanship is just part of the deal. When a driver has a bad day starting off with a crash during practice and his car is a mess it is great to see others give a helping hand to see that he gets the chance to race that night. That’s Sportsmanship!  Fans who band together to help raise funds for a injured driver no matter if they like or dislike that driver.  That’s Sportsmanship!  During a race drivers are aggressive and Sportsmanship is pushed to the limits but, in most cases it is a matter of give and take.  Other times Sportsmanship just goes out the window and that is what make our sport look bad...
