mspaweb1MARFC Board members Bill Barnhart, Dave DeHem,Rand Thompson and Bill Walters attended the fall 2014 Michigan Speedways
Promoters Association meeting held at MIS. We were glad to be able to give our input about what we as fans enjoy seeing at all the racing facilities throughout the state and also to hear what the promoters are trying to do to keep their doors open in the upcoming 2015 season. They discuss the costs of fuel, tires, insurance and concessions that are all on the rise and how to make it more entertaining for all the fans that come to watch.

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...
