The Lord waved life’s final checkered flag on our longtime friend and MARFC member & Michigan Motor Sports Hall of Famer Jay Woolworth. Jay was one of the most beloved racers in the state of Michigan. Always with a handout to say Hi. Helping anyone at any time who needed it and mentoring many youngsters over many years. He worked extremely hard to help make MARFC membership grow for many years. Jay was one of the first members who made a point of introducing himself to me when I first became president over 20 years ago. He always said if there was anything, he could do to help the club just let him know. I will deeply miss him not only as a club member but a cherished friend, our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Woolworth family. May the many blessings of fond memories of Jay always be with us all. Until we all meet again Rest Well My Friend.
