SCCA Establishes Florida Relief Fund For Members Affected By Hurricanes

TOPEKA, Kan. (Sept. 9, 2004) -- Sports Car Club of America, Inc. announced today the creation of a relief fund through the SCCA Foundation to benefit members in southern and central Florida affected by the recent hurricanes.

As the Club enters its busiest time of the year, with The Tire Rack SCCA Solo National Championships, Sept. 14-17, and SCCA National Championship Runoffs Presented by Kohler, Sept. 20-26, many members have sustained significant losses and hardships following Hurricanes Charley and Frances. As many members begin traveling to the events, hesitancy prevails as Hurricane Ivan approaches the southern tip of Florida.

"We are an organization that helps people in need--especially our members, which are our extended family," SCCA President and CEO Steve Johnson said. "We're beginning this drive as we head into our Club's biggest two events. The relief fund will begin at the Solo Nationals, and I will be in contact personally with many industry leaders and race tracks to assist in this program."

All donations will go toward the relief effort, and Johnson will meet with region leaders from the Florida and Central Florida regions as well as the area director to determine the best course for distributing the funds.

Donations can be made at either event, or can be mailed to: SCCA Foundation, PO Box 19400, Topeka, KS 66619. All donations are tax deductible. Please make checks out to "SCCA Foundation" and note "Florida Relief."
