Once again MARFC is saddened by the news of the passing of longtime friend to our club. Ron Watson, founder & president of the Motorsports Hall of Fame of America (MSHFA), formerly located in Novi, Mi. and then moved to Daytona International Speedway died at the age of 72. Ron was a great friend and many times spoke at our general meetings about MSHFA. He was also gracious on a couple of occasions to let our club members host a private tour of the hall and hold meetings at the facility. The racing world has lost an outstanding ambassador for our sport. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Ron’s family a MSHFA friends. Rest Well My Friend Until We Meet Again!
