For 30 years now, MRO has been fortunate to be a part of one of the greatest families you can find – the “NASCAR family.” United by the passion and the joy of racing, and knit together through competition that forever intertwines lives. Growing up together, and even though we may not like to admit it, growing old together. From those who compete on the track to the fans in the stands, the thrill and excitement of the competition draws us in. But, it is the common bond, the experience of “family,” that keeps us together and coming back for more.
MRO is grateful for our place in it all, the part we play, and the relationships we share. For you see, “family” is also faith; faith in each other and made stronger by faith in our Heavenly Father and His son, Jesus. He created us; and for family, He designed us to live together in harmony to the good of the whole and to His glory.
Thank you to each and everyone for your prayers and financial support. Together we are seeing great and marvelous happenings in people’s lives that can only be attributed to God’s presence. In 2018, we have seen the Holy Spirit at work not only in NASCAR, but in many other forms of racing and at local tracks all over this nation; as God is mightily using the men and women who are serving as MRO Association chaplains.
It is wonderful to be a part of it all; and together, we are making today better for many and bringing hope to those whose tomorrows are so uncertain at this time. It is a good thing to be a part of this “FAMILY!”
Blessings and Merry Christmas!
