Report on MARFC October 2021General Meeting!

Well, our October general meeting held at Dooley’s Tavern in Shelby Twp., MI was a highly informative meeting with all our guest speakers. First up way Larry LaMay with an update on the second release of his book 60 of years racing on both sides of the fence. He was incredibly happy with all the folks that bought and enjoy the updated version. Then Kevin Schwarze let us all in about the books that he has written in the past and his current release about Bobby Bower. The Metdepenningen family was on hand to talk about how they all got started in racing and what the future for all three will be in 2022. Kyle sent us a video presentation because he was working out of town. Kyle was enormously proud of his family’s support in his racing career and won a championship to boot this past year. Rayce talked about some of the family’s history during his time growing up in a racing family. Then Jeff gave a remarkably interesting insight into what it takes to run three cars during a race season. Then Tom & Nathan Sprotberry, both informed us of how Nathan grew up following in dad’s footsteps starting at age 14 and Tom express how proud of Nathans knowledge and quick to learn abilities. Nathan was excited to win his first championship and hopefully be able to repeat it again in the near future. We held our annual fundraising raffle. With 1st prize going to Tina Caudill who donated half of it back to the club for the children’s Christmas party. Thanks Tina! Kevin Schwarze was in the house to win 2nd prize. Then 3rd prize went to Richard Roggow. The in-house raffle winner was Nathan Sprotberry. Our 50/50 winner was Amanda Metdepenningen and she donated it back to the MARFC/ Randall Ginter Benevolent Fund. Big Thanks Amanda.
