BRUCE BRUNNER – Presented by RJ Gordy
Bruce has been a member of the San Francisco Region SCCA since 1966. He has earned the distinction of being a lifetime member.
He began volunteering as a Corner Marshal with Flagging and Communicating. He was so talented that after about 10 years, he was asked to join the Starter crew. He holds national licenses in both specialties. Over the years he has also participated as a Corner Marshal in many Pro events including Can-Am, Trans-Am, Champ Car, Indy Car and Formula 1.
In 2005, then Regional Executive R. J. Gordy knew that Bruce was a history buff, so asked him to be the Chairman of the to-be-created SFR Hall of Fame Committee, which would follow the lead of the National SCCA HOF, which was created in 2004.
Later on, Bruce served as a member of the SCCA National HOF Nominating Committee, which nominated candidates from all Regional clubs for national recognition. He then served four years on the National Legacy Committee, serving as its chairman for two years before terming out. This group reviews past and historic members for HOF recognition.
Bruce has received several SFR awards over the years, including Worker of the Year in 2007, Dedicated Worker of the Year in 2020, and a Board Award in 2021. He has also appeared on the cover of The Wheel a number of times!
