Onaway Speedway hosts MARFC Fan Club Day for 2012!

August 11, 2012 For the second year now, Jim and Krista DuBois have invited the club up to their track in Onaway, the Onaway Speedway for some great racing action at this spectacular facility located in the heart of “God’s Country” in northern Michigan. Board Member Denny Trinklien manned the MARFC Member table with help from 2011 “Co-Fan of The Year” Barry Meschke who incidentally got to give the command to start engines as well. Track P.A Announcer  “Oval Revvin” gave some great plugs and information on the club all night and was another  great help on this night when many Michigan Speedways were inundated with rain water.  The MARFC Helmet bag was presented to Current point leader in the sport mod class, the driver of the #89, Chantelle Paquette who also was wheeling the #88 pure stock in competition to boot. Longtime track supporter and good friend to MARFC, Eldon McMillan was the winner of the member raffle prize. Eldon has been a longtime attendee and supporter of the Onaway Speedway so it was great to see him win the member raffle. Many thanks to Jim and Krista as well as our table helpers for another great event.

MARFC on the Dirt at Winston Speedway!

August  3, 2012 MARFC Made the trip to Winston Speedway on a hot and sticky Friday night to see some fantastic racing at the 1/3 mile dirt track located on the “Sunset Side” of Michigan. The MARFC Helmet bag was presented to the driver of the #63 UMP Street Stock, Justin Gilmore. Justin and his family have been long time supporters of the speedway and Justin is early on it what He says will be a long career in Motor Sports. He was very thankful for the honor and urges all young folks to get involved in racing as he knows that they are the future of our sport. The winner of the MARFC Member prize was new member Garry Scharphorn and my table helper was Julie DeHem. It was good to see some MARFC Members in attendance and to visit with Mike and Emily Berck. A tip of the hat and a big Thank You to track owner Tom Sprague Sr. and to track P.A. Announcer Andy O’Riley for the great welcome and hospitality.
