November Events

NOVEMBER MEETING UPDATE:  Our meeting at the Birch Run Best Western was a great one. I would say it was very interesting with all our guest speakers that we on hand.

Up first we hand Big Ed Inloes and Chuck Darling to talk about the MSTRC fund raiser bowling tournament to be held on Saturday February 9, 2008 at Capitol Bowl in Owosso, Michigan. It was announced at the meeting that the MSTRC have selected the benefactors for the upcoming tournament. This year’s fund raising event will be held for the Sam Faur family as well as Matt Schindewolf. They have also picked the Chris Throgmartin Spirit Award winner and that is George Keen for his work with his Racing Show program and website. For information about this event you can contact Chuck Darling through the MSTRC site at

Then Big Ed informed us about both the Spartan and Springport Motor Speedways. Then he hand a very exciting question and answer session with the group. Larry Loynes unfortunately had a little bit of a brain fade and remembered that he was to be the MC for the Michigan Traditional Sprint Car Series Banquet that night but Big Ed let us know all about Race Talk Radio. Our last speaker was the new general manager from the Owosso Speedway Bill Morris who let us know that he will be working hard to try and turn things around at the Speedway for 2008. Many thanks to all who attended and hope that next time we return to the Flint area we will have even more attend the meeting.


Once again on Friday November 23, 2007 MARFC was invited to participate in the 2007 Mt. Clemens Christmas Parade was cold but all who attended had a fun time. Special thanks to Terry Bogusz Jr. for having his Auto City Super Late Model car on display for the parade. Many thanks to all who helped out set up and march in the parade and pass out candy to all the children waiting to see Santa at the end of this special event. We look forward to returning back once again in 2008!
