TOPEKA, Kan. (April 2, 2014) – The Sports Car Club of America is now accepting nominees for the 2014 BFGoodrich Tires Worker of the Year award. A trip to the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring and a lifetime membership to the SCCA are just two of the top prizes available to volunteers in 10 worker specialties.
BFGoodrich Tires, the Official Street Tire of SCCA and the title sponsor of the SafeRacer Club Racing program’s BFGoodrich Tires Super Tour, is in the fourth year of entitling a program that has recognized 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.
Last year, Gene Petersen, a scrutineer from the Arizona Region, was selected for the trip to Sebring. Sadly, “Geno” passed away before being able to attend the event. His wife, Lois, attended the event in his memory.
One BFGoodrich Tires “Worker of the Year” from each of the ten SCCA worker specialties will be honored, as has traditionally been selected. In 2012 and 2013, winners were selected by Division. Each of those specialty 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, and 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 Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca on Thursday night, October 9th, during the SCCA National Championship Runoffs.
Each Divisional Administrator is being asked to nominate an outstanding worker in their specialty to be included in the selection. SCCA members can also submit nominations to the SCCA Club Racing Office for consideration by August 8, 2014.
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.
