MARFC at Thunderbird Raceway for 2017 Season!

We traveled just down the road a piece and arrived at the Thunderbird Raceway for another great night of racing. Dirt Modified # 13 driver Derek Poland was chosen to receive our MARFC Uniform/Helmet bag for his continued support of the track for over 20 plus years and he just happened to win his feature that night too. One of our newest MARFC members won our MARFC raffle that evening. Thanks to our table helpers for the night Gwen Beck & board member Barry Meschke. Special thanks for Tom Sprague and his staff for another great season at their racing facility. (Photo Top: Derek Poland & Barry Meschke) ( Photo Bottom: Table helpers Gwen Beck & Barry Meschke)

Winston Speedway 2017 Report!

Another beautiful night at the races as we were at the Winston Speedway for another night on the dirt! Plenty of different divisions on hand for all to see. Mini Wedge # 52 Driver Hunter Lange was presented our MARFC Uniform/Helmet bag for his attitude to help others in his division at only 11 years old and already has 3 wins this season. Many Thanks to Ed Higgins, Dan Dykman and Jeremy the track announcer for all the help and having us back again. MARFC raffle winner was Allen Albert and table volunteers for the night were Barry Meschke and myself.
