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

June 2004 Minutes

June 2004

As I sit here thinking about the Memorial Day weekend and racing here in Michigan I have to take a moment to remember why we celebrate this day. We all must remember those who have fought for our freedom & rights over the years and remember our loved ones who sacrificed their lives so we may continue to enjoy our freedom and the things that we loved to do as free people here at home. I know racing is the big picture to most of us but lets take the time to say thanks to those who have gone on and a special thanks to those who are doing their job for us today. May God keep our troops safe and bring them all home soon!

Just a big reminder to all those who are planning to attend our 1st Annual MARFC Family Picnic on Sunday July 11, 2004 you must RSVP by e-mailing me at  with Family Name, how many adults and kid’s along with kid’s ages boy or girl no later than July 1, 2004 so we can have enough food and things ready for all. More information about the picnic is the events page!

As always, keep racing!!

May Meetings

Flat Rock Speedway

After a rain out on our schedule night we were able to get it in the following Saturday and seen some great racing at the Rock. Our members were also treated to the autograph night that evening. The Street Stock "B" Main 2003 Champion Ed Hindall was presented our MARFC Uniform/Helmet bag by our board members present. Special thanks to Ron Drager, Scott Schultz and their entire staff for arranging the make up date so quickly.



Auto City Speedway

The rain stayed away on this night and those who came saw some fantastic racing with the extra special show from the week before that was added that night. 2003 Modified Champion Buck Harsen was on hand to receive our MARFC Uniform/Helmet Bag and also presented a replacement award from the 2004 January MARFC Banquet that he had lost in the house fire just a few weeks after receiving it at the banquet. Buck was surprised and very thankful. Very Special Thanks goes to Joe DeWitte and Greg Yost for the invite. Great job on the updated improvements at the track.
