FROM THE DESK OF THE PRESIDENT

Racing Season is in full swing now and many of us have experienced all that racing in Michigan has to offer.  Close battles for the lead, spectacular crashes, sun(both bright and liquid varieties) cold and heat.   There are many more opportunities to enjoy your favorite kind of racing this summer, so go enjoy them.

See ya there!!!

A lot has been happening these past few weeks, hopefully this will bring us up to speed.

We would like to thank Roger Blackstock for his support of our club.  The MARFC Logo flew proudly on the hood of Roger’s ARCA Bondo/Mar-Hyde car for the Flat Rock Race.  Our logo was also be on the car at the Toledo Race on June 23.
