Dedicated to the Betterment and Benefit of Auto Racing and Those Engaged Therein

June 2001 Minutes



The racing season is here and many of our membership tracks are very busy with their weekly racing venues.  Let us go out and support your local tracks and be sure to try and check out one you haven’t been to yet and spread your support of auto racing around.  Be sure to let others know that you are proud member of the Michigan Auto Racing Fan Club and help us encourage others to join and make our club grow.  Have a safe and race filled season and hope to see you at one of our Fan Club nights soon.


I would personally like to take a moment to say Thank You to all the Club members and Board members who sent cards or called after learning of my father’s passing last month. Many thanks to the club for sending a beautiful basket of flowers.  My family and I appreciate all the kindness you have all shown us in these past couple of weeks.  My father was a big race fan as well as a driver and car owner back in the days of the Mt. Clemens Race Track during the 60’s.


Thanks again!!


We here at MARFC wish to extend our deepest sympathies to Paul Anton and his family after the passing of his mother Antoinette Anton in California.  Paul is our club photographer and we send our thoughts and prayers to him and his family at this time.


That’s it for now.

Once again I must do what has to be done.  On Saturday, an unfortunate incident at Auto City Speedway claimed the life of long time racer Dennis Brooks.  The Michigan Auto Racing Fan Club extends its sympathy to his family and friends.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to you at this time of sorrow.

President, MARFC
