MARFC a Thunderbird Raceway for First Time 2016!

thunderbirdweb1thunderbrdweb2With rain all around the area and many tracks washed out Tom Sprague and his crew had their fingers crossed and moved forward and the racing was on. With over 140 cars in the pit area and into the parking lot race fans had a full night of racing to watch as rains held off just enough to get them in. Our MARFC UNIFORM/HELMET BAG was given to rookie Dirt Modified # 8 driver John Foss for his sportsmanship and support of the division. Our MARFC membership raffle was won by Bob Stone. Thanks again for having us and glad to see another track come from being closed for many years and making it work. We look forward to returning again next season.(Photo Top Left: John Foss & MARFC Board member Barry Meschke) (Photo Top Right: MARFC member Bob Stone with Barry Meschke)
