Outstanding night for racing on the dirt on the west side of the state. Weather was perfect, and the pit area was packed with loads of racing. Warrior driver # X Derrick Stahl was chosen to receive out MARFC/Uniform Helmet Bag for his support of the track and making it a family of racers with his step daughter Ella Mattson who drives a mini-wedge car at the raceway. They even won a heat race together. Vic Yurick was the winner of our MARFC raffle that evening. Many thanks to Tom Sprague and the entire staff for a great time and having us back again this year & can’t wait to return in 2019!

Great night for our return trip to the Owosso Speedway after a ten-year absence. Good crowd on hand and some good racing to boot. We had over 40 members in attendance that evening, and we thank them for supporting the speedway by returning after so long. The MARFC/Uniform Helmet Bag was given to Pure Stock driver # 7 Nick Johnston for his support of the track and his division over the years. Many Thanks to “Big Ed” and Dennis Grim for making it possible for our club to return and all the PR Ed did that night. Table helpers for the night were, Al & Kyle Peltier, John Jackson, Barry Meschke and yours truly. Thanks again to all who stopped by and said Hi!(Photo Top: Nick Johnston & John Jackson) (Photo Middle:Chuck “The Flounder” Darling & Al Peltier) (Photo Bottom: John Jackson, Doug Jakeway, Al Peltier & Barry Meschke)

Our MARFC members raffle was won by Linda Hurd. Table volunteers were Bill Walter, Rand Thompson, John Jackson, and myself.

Many thanks to Ed Higgins and Dan Dykman for once again giving us a fan club day event this season. Our MARFC Uniform Helmet Bag was presented to the winner of a random draw of all the drivers in attendance that evening and with a great surprise Dan Dykman former track champion was the winner. Sorry, that our MARFC table was no available that evening but a last-minute work schedule change made it tuff to make the trip and be there on time.
