SCCA Now Accepting Nominations for 2008 Hall of Fame Class

TOPEKA, Kan. (July 19, 2007) - Do you know someone who has made an enduring impact on the Sports Car Club of America? If so, consider nominating that member to the SCCA Hall of Fame.

The purpose of the SCCA Hall of Fame is to preserve, protect and record the SCCA's accomplishments and history for current and future members, through recognizing those who have made a significant impact on the development of the Club. When it comes to Hall of Fame nominations, the candidate's impact on the Club is paramount. Whether it be contributions through a lifetime or one decision that altered the course of SCCA history, the Nominating Committee is in search of those members who have forever changed the face of SCCA.

Every year the Nomination Committee receives more than 100 nominations, from which 15 candidates are chosen. Nominees from the previous year carry over, but resubmitting can only improve one's chances. From the pool of 15, the Selection Committee chooses five distinguished individuals to induct into the Hall of Fame. In 2008, the five inductees will be recognized at the SCCA National Convention, held in San Antonio in February.

Nominations can be sent to Howard Duncan at hduncan@scca.com or Aimee Thoennes at athoennes@scca.com. The deadline for nominations is September 10th.

If you personally have an interest in preserving and honoring the SCCA heritage, why not become a member of either Committee? Up to six Club members sit on each Committee as well as a member of the SCCA National Office staff and the Club Archivist. There are no requirements to apply and members are rotated every three years. Interested parties can submit a letter and SCCA resume to Howard Duncan at the above email or by mail to P.O. Box 19400, Topeka, KS 66619.

Should you find yourself in the Topeka area, stop by the SCCA National Office to see plaques representing all of the Hall of Fame members through 2007.
