Hi Race Fans, The first winter meeting of the season is coming up in a week from now on Saturday October 20th at the DeCarlo’s Banquet Center in Warren, Michigan. We will have the drawing for the annual Cheer raffle at that time so if you have not gotten your raffle tickets in that were sent out this past summer you need to get those sent back to Sue Ginter right now. You can bring them to the meeting along with the ticket money but it would be better of you could send them in. We are planning on three speakers to be there as well. Jim Lamb, driver of the #17 Orange Machine out at the Waterford Hills Road Course is scheduled to be there to share about what Waterford Hills has to offer as well as to talk about his program in road racing. We are scheduled to have two speakers from Must See Racing Exrtreme Racing. Jim Hanks, the head honcho will be there to speak about just what these folks do with both the Super Modified and the Sprint Car Series. Jim is bringing along an extra special guest to speak a bit more about what they do and also to share a bit about himself. That special guest is the 2012 (to be presented in 2013 on 1-19-13) MARFC/ Eddie Sachs Jr. Memorial Lifetime Achievement Award winner Tom Bigelow. Tom has a storied career in USAC Sprint Cars and Indy Cars as well as Midgets with numerous wins as well as starts at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Tom is very active in racing these days and is one of the color commentators for Must See Racing. The meeting doors will open at 6:30 PM with the meeting getting underway very quickly after that. Soft drinks will be available with Beer available for purchase from the hall. We look forward to seeing you at the first winter meeting of the 2012 / 2013 indoor MARFC Schedule.
Yours in Racing, Dave DeHem MARFC President
