MARFC Saddened by the Loss of a Racing Legend!

The Michigan Automobile Racing Fan Club is very saddened by the news of the passing of James Hylton and his son James Jr. We had the pleasure in meeting and talking to James in Daytona this past February and asked if we could place a Tribute Decal on his car in honor of our dear friend Larry Iacoboni and he said without any hesitation yes and was honored to have it on his car that local driver Brad Smith was driving. Larry received the enclosed photo just before he passed in March and was very appreciated of Mr. Hylton for allowing it to happen. We send our deepest sympathies to the Hylton family and racing team for such a great loss. May the Lord Bless and Keep Them Always!

MARFC Former Board of Directors Passes Away!

Sad news to report that we have lost another former MARFC Board member. Bill Palmer longtime member who served on the board many times & was AKA “Willie the Clown” to many of us. He was instrumental in helping me with the Children’s Christmas Parties for many, many years. Bill was 93 years old and a former racer in his own right. He always had his hand out ready to shake your hand when he seen you. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Charlene and the Palmers family. “May God Bless & Keep You Always My Friend”.

Also another Longtime member Wes Boyd passes away after a short illness back in March. Was contacted by his wife Kathy just a few days ago. Our Thoughts & Prayers are with Kathy and the Boyd family at his time. R.I.P Wes!

A memorial gathering for Bill Palmer will be held at Christ Church of Fraser, 34385 Garfield Rd, Fraser, MI 48026 on Thursday, April 19, 2018, from 1pm until the time of funeral at 2pm. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be addressed to the Christ Church of Fraser. Share memories at www.faulmannwalsh


Happy Easter To all MARFC Members!
