CRAIGHEAD NAMED NEW U.S. F2000 PUBLICIST
FAIRFIELD, N.J. (November 16, 1999) – The U.S. F2000 National Championship Presented by Speedvision has named Allan Craighead its new Publicist.
Craighead, employed by SCCA Pro Racing, which sanctions the U.S. F2000, will handle pre-race and at-track public relations duties. Eric Prill, who has handled U.S. F2000 publicity since 1997, will remain with the series as Public Relations Manager.
Craighead, 29, joined the SCCA Pro Racing Communications department in July, 1999. He graduated from Laurentian University in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada in 1995 with an Honours Bachelor of Commerce degree in Sports Administration. Over the past three years, Craighead has operated Keyhole Racing, in Toronto, Ontario, and worked as a freelance writer covering formula cars, including the U.S. F2000, in Canada.
"We're glad to welcome Al and his open-wheel knowledge and enthusiasm into the F2000 organization," said Dan Andersen, series co-owner. "The combination of Al and Eric will bring our public relations efforts to a new level of excellence, which is vital to a developmental professional racing series."
"I'm looking forward to working with the U.S. F2000 National Championship," said Craighead. "It is one of the leading open-wheel series in the world, and has helped launch some great drivers' careers."
Formula Motorsports, organizer of the U.S. F2000, has contracted SCCA Pro Racing to handle its public relations operations since December, 1996. Prill, 26, will continue his association with the series, in addition to his duties with the Speedvision World Challenge. The two will be based out of the SCCA Pro Racing offices in Englewood, Colo.
