Racing World Lost Three Great Legends!

This month the racing community lost one of the greatest broadcasters and announcers the racing world had ever had. Bob Jenkins passed away at the age of 73. Bob attended our banquet in 2016 to receive our MARFC/Eddie Sachs Memorial Lifetime Achievement Award and was greatly appreciative of receiving it. We also lost another legend in our sport here in Michigan the host of “The Racing Show” George Keen at age 77. George was also presented our MARFC Media Award back in 2010. He was known as a fun-loving gentleman who owned, sponsored, race cars and as a broadcaster promoted racing most of his life and will truly be missed by so many in the racing world. Then we were informed that longtime promoter of the Galesburg Speedway that hosted many MARFC events Ralph Warning passed away on August 12, 2021. He promoted the Galesburg Speedway for 15 years. Our thoughts and prayers are with all the families. “Rest Well” to them all! (Photo Top Left: Eddie Sachs Jr., Bob Jenkins, and President Bill Barnhart) ( Photo Top Right: George Keen)
