To all my fellow SFR SCCA members, racers, volunteers and staff my name is Joe Montana and I am a candidate for your Board of Directors. I joined the SCCA in 1977 and raced in the A sedan class till 1988. At that time, I was invited to participate in what was then called the Pepsi Challenge 24 Hours of Daytona. That was the ultimate racing experience of my life, and still is today. After that, I hung up my helmet. I stayed away from racing until 6 years ago. I was testing my Cobra at Thunder Hill, and told my wife Teresa, “I’m hooked again.” I re-joined the SCCA and started racing in GT-1 and SP classes.
Those who aren’t familiar with my background, I’ll give you a short description. I have a BS college degree in Business Administration and a minor in Human Resources from Columbia State University. My work experience has encompassed all facets of my education. I have extensive experience in recruiting and finance. For the past twenty years I have been working in the Medical industry as a hospital director. I was responsible for maintaining multi million dollar budgets. I was also responsible for hiring personnel, ranging from Housekeeping to Medical staff.
What I hope to bring to the members if I am elected is a new set of eyes and a willingness to help the San Francisco Region grow in a positive direction. As a racer, I have some ideas to improve the driver experience, and as a businessman I have some ideas to hopefully better the SF Region of the SCCA better. If I am fortunate enough to be elected, I promise I will do my best to represent the members. It is most important to gather suggestions and ideas from the members and apply what is beneficial to the organization. Thank you for your support and I will see you at the races.
