President’s Desk

June 2003

First off, I personally would like to say a very special thanks to the current board members who I have had a great deal of time to get to know and we have worked great together for the past two years. I also wish the best to those who will not be back for this next term for the board. We hope that they will continue to assist the club in the future. We welcome our newest board members and hope they will enjoy their new positions and help us in keeping our club growing.

A Very Special Get Well wish to Dick Crook promoter of the Mt. Pleasant Speedway. Dick we wish you well and are thoughts and prayers are with you and Betty along with your family at this time. Dick and Betty Crook have been very strong supporters of our club and Dick had a tumor removed last month and Is said to be doing fine now.

Web Master Rob Michon has just added to our site our new message board. Stop by and check out the site at and sign up to chat with others from the club as well as race fans, drivers and others across the web. Remember if you are a club member and a driver we need you to contact us so we can make a new MARFC drivers page with a photo of your car, the track you run along with what division you race in. Please contact Rob at with your information. Thanks for helping!

Board member Laura Tucker & son Jimmy presented our MARFC Uniform/Helmet  Bag to the third generation Factory Stock Driver Jeff Owens for his outstanding sportsmanship through out the 2002 season and always has a positive smile for everyone.
