Sunoco Super Series Searching for New Chief Technical Inspector
Bill Noel Stepping Down While Citing Time Constraint Issues
Salem, Ind. (February 21, 2002) – The Champion Racing Association/Sunoco Super Series is currently undergoing an industry search for the role of Chief Technical Inspector for the Midwestern late model series. From the series inception in 1997 through 2001, Bill Noel served as the Chief Technical Inspector for the series. Noel, an Anderson, Ind., area resident, also served in the same capacity for Anderson Speedway.
“I’m really proud of the work my tech team has done,” Noel said recently, “and feel we have been a large part of the tremendous growth in the series. I’m going to miss the teams and people involved in the series, but personal and professional time constraints have brought about this change.”
Noel has agreed to start out the 2002 season with the series, to help bring along a new technical leader, and help when necessary when schedule conflicts are not present.
“I’m going to miss him,” commented CRA Sunoco Super Series managing partner R. J. Scott. “Bill has always been a part of any team I’ve put together to promote racing…he has always been a catch net of sorts…I always knew that technical inspection was going to take place fairly and professionally. I’m really glad he’s going to be around to aid in the transition.”
Glenn Luckett, series director, also commented, “I hate to see it, but I totally understand his needs. It is kind of tough to think about, but I’m sure a new guy will bring his own fresh ideas to the table. The main thing we are going to ask of a new Chief Technical Inspector is that he goes about his job like Bill did. He must make sure that all teams, our regulars and the visitors, feel like they are welcome and that they all get treated the same. Bill and his guys were very good at making ‘outsiders’ feel like they were part of the family and got the same fair treatment.”
Currently, the series has a few names on the table as a replacement, but is seeking more interested parties for this important role with the series. Luckett noted, “It’s an important decision and we just want to make sure we take a look at as many people as possible to get the right person in here. When we get the word out that we are looking you never know what good things might come out of it.”
