The MARFC Fan Club Night Season got off to a terrific start on May 13th with two guest appearances. We were happy to welcome USAC Silver Crown Sprint Racer Taylor Ferns to help us welcome members, present the MARFC Helmet Bag, and sign autographs. Taylor is an accomplished sprint racer and is the first woman to make a podium finish in Silver Crown. She assisted in the presentation of the MARFC Helmet Bag to long time Flat Rock Speedway competitor Paul Pelletier. Paul is also a two-time Super Late Model Champion at Flat Rock. Paul is joined here by MARFC VP Dave DeHem and Taylor Ferns.
Also in attendance was former NACAR racer and MARFC Member Ken Schrader (right). It was nice to see Ken and to see him race at Flat Rock. Ken had just come off winning the School Bus Figure 8 Race at Toledo the previous night. He said it took him three tries but he finally did it this year (sporting a big grin).
Thank you to incoming General Manager Brandon Hamby and staff for the warm welcome. We shall miss outgoing General Manager Scott Schultz but got to see Scott one more time at Toledo on May 26th.
