Attention All MARFC Members: As we all applaud all those who are working hard to help keep our family & friends safe during these trying times and with the hopes of returning to our way of life soon. We here at MARFC are following our membership tracks and are also going to abide with the states ordered stay at home until May 15h. With this that means our fan club day events at the following speedways have been cancelled for 2020:
Corrigan Oil Speedway – Friday May 8, 2020
Flat Rock Speedway – Saturday May 9, 2020
Owosso Speedway – Saturday May 16, 2020
Tri-City Motor Speedway – Friday May 29, 2020
It will take some time to find out how it will affect how all the tracks & what they will need to do at their facilities to move forward for this racing season. With all the hardships that our race fans, racers and tracks are enduring we hope we will be able to reschedule these events for later in the season if not we need to still move forward. When we do get the green flag to return to the sport we all love so much it is our responsibility to do it safely and to help support our local racing facilities across the state to make sure they are able to stay open for the remainder of this season but in the seasons to come. Knowing many are without the finances to build their race cars, take their families to the track and the tracks loosing sponsorships due to companies large and small being shut down for so long it will take a large team effort from all involved to bring back and maintain the sport we have the passion for. So, I am asking all of us to come together and do what we can in our own way to help racing stay alive for not only us now but into the future.
Once again, many thanks to all those folks on the front lines working to help all of us. So, when you do go out please thank them for what they are doing no matter what job it is because if they were not on the front lines where would we be! May the Lord be with us all no matter what that need is physically, financially, and spiritually.
“God” Bless & As Always Keep Racing!
