For the last 20 years, Al Michenfelder, Freehold resident, and founder of the Racer’s Club has looked after and educated over 100 local boys and girls who have an interest in model cars.
Through his own passion for cars and racing, Michenfelder has been a staple at the Downtown Freehold Kruise Nights and throughout town with his Valvoline attire. At the Monday Michenfelder was recognized for his years of service with a plaque from Valvoline presented by Councilman Kevin Kane.
“We [Borough Council] got a letter from Valvoline from a William Weston who is the distribution manager in Lexington Kentucky. The letter said that they would like to congratulate Al on his 20 years of dedicated service to the Racers Club and wish his many more years of continuous service,” said Kane.
After receiving a customized plaque from Valvoline, Michenfelder addressed the audience and explained that through the 20 years 120 local kids have been apart of the Racers Club.
Michenfelder also thanked many local businesses like and for their continued support of the Racers Club.
