TOPEKA, Kan. (Jan. 25, 2019) -- A few changes have been made to the SCCA® Ventures Board of Directors to begin the New Year. Peter Jankovskis is now Chairman of that board, and Sydney Davis Yagel, the new General Manager of SCCA Pro Racing, has been added to the board. Dan Helman has stepped down as Ventures Chairman to better focus on his role as SCCA Pro Racing’s interim President.
Other Ventures board members for 2019 include former SCCA Chairman John Walsh, SCCA’s senior finance employee Mindi Pfannenstiel, SCCA Enterprises President Robey Clark, and secretary KJ Christopher.
In 2017, SCCA Enterprises and SCCA Pro Racing were merged into one subsidiary entity named SCCA Ventures Inc, which is overseen by a corporate board. The move created a more structured oversight and reporting process for the for-profit arms of the Sports Car Club of America®, and provides a number of administrative advantages for the businesses.
The Sports Car Club of America®, Inc., founded in 1944, is a 67,500-member motorsports organization that incorporates all facets of autocross, rally and road racing at both Club and professional levels. With headquarters in Topeka, Kansas, the SCCA annually sanctions over 2,000 events through its 116 Regions and subsidiary divisions. Much of the SCCA’s activities are made possible with support from the following Official Partners: Hagerty, the Official Insurance Partner of SCCA; Hawk Performance, the Official Brake Products of SCCA; Sunoco, the Official Fuel of SCCA; and Tire Rack, the Official Tire Retailer of SCCA.
