CENTENNIAL, Colo. (October 16, 2002) -- The Sports Car Club of America, Inc. (SCCA) has announced a five-year contract extension of President and CEO Steve Johnson, meaning the 65,000-member motorsports organization will remain under his leadership through June 2008.
"Our members are happier with the Club than ever, and that is the direct result of Steve's efforts," said JoAnne Jensen, Chairman of the SCCA Board of Directors."Our membership numbers are up, our participation is up and our relationships with outside organizations are built on mutual trust and respect. The financial health of the SCCA and our subsidiaries is improving, our staff is knowledgeable and reliable and the headquarters move is on time and under budget.
Johnson joined the Sports Car Club of America staff in June 2000 after serving as Vice President of Sales for the National Hot Rod Association. Under Johnson's direction and leadership, the SCCA's membership has grown more than 18 percent to over 65,000 members for the first time in its 58-year history.
"We have accomplished a great amount in the past two years and I want to thank the Board, staff and members for all of their dedication and hard work," said Johnson."Over the next five years, we will continue down the path that recognizes our members as the most important part of this organization, and continue to grow in unprecedented ways. The Sports Car Club of America is the greatest motorsports organization in the world, and I welcome the challenge to continue our growth, vision and positive results for the next five years and beyond."
Johnson will continue to serve as President of subsidiary SCCA Pro Racing Ltd., a post he has held since April 2001.
Established in February 1944, the Sports Car Club of America, along with SCCA Pro Racing, will move November 15 from Englewood, Colo. to a brand new headquarters in Topeka, Kan.
