Michigan Racing Legend Jack Goodwin Passes Away!

goodwinwebWe here are very saddened to hear of the passing of one of Michigan’s racing legends Jack Goodwin. Jack has been a longtime MARFC member & supporter. He came to many of our general meetings as a guest speaker and to our annual banquets and was presented the MARFC/Eddie Sachs Memorial Lifetime Achievement Award back in 2006. Jack was a childhood hero of mine and being able to find and connect back up with him again in 1998 and spending time with him when he came to town was priceless. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Eunice and Jacks family at this time. Knowing that he is at God’s side now is a comfort for all. Jack has taken his final checkered flag with us here but now is in heaven racing for eternity for the Lord. “God’s Speed My Friend”.

Sincerely, Bill Barnhart MARFC President

A memorial is being planned at the First Chruch of the Nazarene Bradenton on Wednesday March 11th at 4pm.
1616 59th Street, Bradenton, FL 34209

MARFC Helps Support MSTRC Charity Bowling Event!

febweb3Many folks were on hand to enjoy bowling and bench racing and for all who came out to help support the 12th Annual MSTRC Bowling Tournament we say thank you! With the many donations that were given to help the great cause everyone had a good chance to take something home. Big Ed Inloes and Chuck Darling did a fantastic job for this event and were on hand to present the two benefactors Aaron Dancer and Jason VanDuesen. Jason was on hand along with Danny Gaddis who is Aaron Dancers Uncle. Jason has had a lot of medical issues over the past few years and is a huge supporter of racing and is also a MARFC member and was very grateful to all who gave on their time and donations. Aaron was unable to attend as his has finally returned to work after being off for over three months after the crash he had at the Spartan Speedway last fall so his Uncle Danny Gaddis was there and was truly moved by all the generosity of the racing community and extended his and Aarons many thanks.
