TOPEKA, Kan. (April 30, 2013) – BFGoodrich Tires, the Official Street Tire of the SCCA, is continuing its support of the Sports Car Club of America BFGoodrich Tires Worker of the Year program with a dream trip to the Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring for the third season in-a-row. The Grand Prize winner will, once again, be randomly selected from a pool of finalists nominated as Worker of the Year in each of the nine SCCA Divisions. A second finalist will win a lifetime membership to the SCCA.
As the Official Street Tire of SCCA, as well as the title sponsor of the Club Racing Super Tour, BFGoodrich Tires is in its fourth year supporting a program that recognizes volunteers in roles such as Emergency Services, Grid and Pit, Timing and Scoring, Registration, Race Administration, Flagging and Communications, Starter, Steward, Scrutineering and Sound Control since 1985.
Joi Robinson attended this year’s Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring after earning the Southern Pacific Division nominee through her work in Grid and Pit.
One BFGoodrich Tires “Worker of the Year” from each of the nine SCCA divisions, regardless of specialty, will be honored. Each of those nine Divisional winners will win a set of BFGoodrich Tires for their passenger car or light truck and a patch, plaque and jacket to commemorate the achievement. Their names will also be entered into the drawing for the Sebring trip and the lifetime membership.
The Grand Prize, courtesy of BFGoodrich Tires, will include airfare for two, hotel, event credentials, at-track hospitality, rental car and golf cart at the event.
The winners will be announced at the BFGoodrich Tires Worker of the Year party at Road America during the 50th SCCA National Championship Runoffs.
Worker of the Year candidates will be selected by a vote from that division’s Executive Steward and Region Executives. Each Divisional Administrator will nominate an outstanding worker in each of their specialties to be included in the vote. SCCA members can also submit nominations to their Regional Executive, Executive Steward or Divisional Administrator for consideration by August 9, 2013.
By definition, award nominees should support their specialty, events, region, competitors, fellow workers and the SCCA; show dedication and support throughout the year; exhibit strong skills, good leadership, and a willingness to go above and beyond what is expected; and provide excellent customer service to everyone that person encounters.
