The weather was perfect and many MARFC members were treated to some great racing action this past Saturday, August 2nd.

Christine has been racing the past 3 years and is always enthusiastic in supporting the track and the division. This season she is a multiple feature winner and recorded a top five finish this past Saturday. Track announcer Brian Osborne kept the crowd informed all night and is another reason the racing is so good at Winston Speedway.

Thoughts & Prayers Needed!

July 27, 2014 2014 MinutesUncategorized

Two of our most long and loyal former board members are in need of our thoughts & prayers at this time. Bill Palmer has been under the weather for some time now and had taken a fall a little while back and could use some cheering up. I think a few cards would do the trick to bring his spirits back.  Also, we have just learned the Arlene Stone wife of past President Bill Stone has had a stroke a few months back and is not able to be at home with Bill who has been home bond with a long term illness himself. Please keep all these folks in your prayers as they have a long road ahead of them. Cards can be sent to: Bill Palmer and Bill & Arlene Stone in care of MARFC P.O. Box 66436, Roseville, MI 48066 and will see they receive them ASAP.
