Regional Executive News

I just returned from the SCCA National Convention held in Las Vegas where I got to meet many members of this great organization to which we belong.  There were over 480 members there representing all aspects of our club—Road Racing, Solo, Rally Cross.  The National Staff members were there as well as all our governing leaders.  I had the opportunity to meet our President and CEO, Mike Cobb, and was very impressed with his vision for the future of our organization which is to be the preferred motorsports community in the US, built on fun, shared passion and access to an exhilarating motorsports experience.

Our racing season starts in mid February with our Drivers School.  A lot of planning has gone into that school.  By the time you have the opportunity to read this column we will have already had a Chiefs Meeting, a Stewards Meeting and training for specialty crews.

Everyone needs to remember that it takes a lot of effort to make everything go smoothly—many volunteers put in many hours to make it happen.  Your Board of Directors is made up of volunteers as well.

That being said—your Board is here for you.  We want to hear how we can make your motorsports experience better and we’re always open to suggestions.  Call us, email us, stop us at the track and let us know what we can do to keep our sport fun, fair and safe.
