Springport Motor Speedway & MARFC

Mother Nature tried for most of the day to keep racers and fans from seeing some fantastic racing at the Springport Motor Speedway. New board member Chuck Horan and “Big Al” & Kyle Peltier were on hand to present our MARFC Helmet bag to track worker Dick Laprutt for his hard working behind the scences work at the speedway. Our MARFC raffle prize winner for the night was Denny Trinklein. Many thanks to Maurice Randall and his entire staff for having us back again this year and look forward to the 2011 racing season.

MARFC Fan Club Day at Winston Speedway

July 30th saw the club make the trip over to the west side of the state and the Winston Speedway in Rothbury for some great racing on the fast 1/3 mile clay oval. Denny Trinklien came over from Saginaw to help yours truly with the table. Bill May came by to say hi and to let us know that he came out to Winston this night because he knew the club was there. Bill was the helmet bag winner at Butler in in 2002 and still uses his bag today. He must have had things figured out as he won his heat and his feature race at Winston.

Rick Ward, driver of the #11 Mini Stock was selected to receive the MARFC Helmet Bag this night as Rick is extremely dedicated to his racing division and to the speedway. Rick had a few scrapes during his feature but true to form, he stayed with it and drove through a very tight and competitive field for a decent finish. One of our newest members, Charles Delaney II was our MARFC Member raffle prize winner. Many thanks to Tom and Lois Sprague as well as Andy the Winston Announcer who keeps the fans entertained and informed.
