Grammer Moves from SCCA Pro Racing to Become G&W Motorsports President

ALTON, Va. (October 2, 2004) -- G&W Motorsports team owner Cole Scrogham announced Ken Grammer has joined the team as President. Grammer comes to G&W Motorsports from SCCA Pro Racing, where he has served as Director of Operations for the last two years.

"We are bringing in Ken to coordinate the team functions into a central management structure," Scrogham explained. "This will allow myself and Price Cobb to focus on what we do best for the team, while Ken oversees the operation as a whole."

"I am very excited to join G&W Motorsports," Grammer said. "They have an impeccable reputation, a winning reputation and a fantastic team."

In his role as President, Grammer will oversee the day-to-day operations of G&W Motorsports, in addition to continuing to build a winning culture with team members, drivers and sponsor.

"My goal for the team is to carry Cole's vision forward," Grammer said. "We want to take the team to the next level, which includes being in a position to win the Daytona Prototype championship."

"We feel Ken will be a great asset to G&W Motorsports because of strong business and financial background coupled with his exposure to racing," Scrogham said.

While at SCCA Pro Racing, Grammer oversaw all operational aspects of the division and its racing series. Prior to that, he worked 20 years as a technical project and team manager in the computer industry.

In addition to his time with SCCA, Grammer has worked in many different capacities in motorsports, serving as crew chief and team manager for a professional team, working as a starter, and driving in SCCA events and the Motorola Cup Series, the predecessor to the Grand-Am Cup Series.

Grammer, his wife Stacy and their three children will relocate to Virginia International Raceway from Topeka, Kan., later this month.

G&W Motorsports, based outside of Danville, Va., at Virginia International Raceway, is the most successful team in the Rolex Sports Car Series, capturing the inaugural GT championship in 2000, both the GT and GTS championships in 2001 and the SRP II championship in 2003. G&W Motorsports is the only team to compete in every Rolex Series race since the series' inception, accumulating 15 class wins and more than 50 podium finishes in class.
