TOPEKA, Kan. (Sept. 16, 2003) -- SCCA Pro Racing has named Shawn Passen as its Technical Manager of Pro Racing.

Passen joins the SCCA Pro Racing staff after nearly 10 years of building and racing cars. He began his racing career by crewing for a Formula Ford team when he was 17. And, over the past decade, he has been involved in SCCA Club Racing, IMSA, and the Speed World Challenge GT and Touring Car series.

"The experience Shawn adds to our Pro Racing staff will allow us to offer additional assistance and service to our drivers, teams and manufacturers, while utilizing his knowledge to help improve our programs," said Mitch Wright, Vice President and General Manager of SCCA Pro Racing.

"Having been on the team side of racing for many years, I hope I can bring this insight into the technical department of the series," Passen said. "I look forward to the challenges and possibilities this new job presents."

Passen graduated from DeVry University in 1991 with a degree in business. He resides in Lewis Center, Ohio with his a wife, Jill, and children, Max and Olivia. He continues to race competitively, driving a BMW 325is D model car that is prepped with World Challenge trim, while he also continues to build and prep race cars with his father Ron Passen.
