Welcome to The Villages Motor Racing Fan Club website!
You are cordially invited to view the pages in our site, all of which have been designed to keep our members and interested parties up-to-speed (pun intended!) on who we are and what we do.
It's time to renew your club membership - $10 per year. Please see Membership Coordinator Barb Pappas at the next meeting. Can't make it to a meeting? Click Here to download a form to renew.
Our next meeting is March 1 at Colony Cottage Recreation Center, going green at 7 p.m.
Our guest speaker is a racer and now a Florida racing historian, Jim Fenton.
Jim made a name for himself in the Late Model ranks on the well-known - but long gone - tracks of South Florida. His cars were known for the "Four" on the doors - the word, not the number. They were also known for finishing up front.
Club meetings are open to all Villages residents – owners and renters – with appropriate Villages ID.
Join us Sunday, Feb. 26 at SeaBreeze Recreation Center as we settle in to kick off the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup season. It's a good opportunity to sit around and chat about racing (and of course do some "trash talking" about various drivers) as we watch the exciting start of the 2017 season, and as we watch the equally dramatic start of our own Prediction Row competition.
We will also have a "Predict the Top 3" contest where one attendee will win $100.
The fun starts around 1:00. Bring a comfortable chair, a snack to share with eight and a sense of humor. And, of course, it's a BYOB event.
This event is open to all Villages residents – owners and renters – with appropriate Villages ID.
The February 2017 edition of The Villages Magazine features a 2-page article about our club.
It recounts the history of the club and looks at the future. The club's varied activities and the unique variety of guest speakers are featured.

Corey LaJoie will compete in the No. 83 Toyota Camry for multiple races in the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season. LaJoie will run his first career Daytona 500 February 26 with sponsorship from Dustless Blasting.
Corey is the son of two-time Xfinity Series champion Randy LaJoie, and club Hall of Fame member Lisa LaJoie, and grandson of beloved club member Ernie Battee.
LaJoie came up the NASCAR ranks through the K&N Pro Series East, Whelen Modified and Southern Modified tours. He ran a limited schedule in the Camping World Truck and Xfinity Series over four seasons. LaJoie also found success piloting an ARCA car for his father in 2013. The team entered five races that season, won three of the events – Chicagoland, Pocono Raceway and Kentucky Speedway – and finished fourth at Iowa.
