The 2010 SCCA Club Racing Worker of the Year Awards were presented on Thursday at Road America, during the SCCA National Championship Runoffs presented by Subway.
Every year, the Sports Car Club of America requests nominations from its members for Worker of the Year in their specialty categories. From the pool of nominees, a peer group from each worker specialty selects who they feel has earned Worker of the Year honors. Each of the Worker of the Year award winners will be featured in a 2011 issue of SportsCar magazine.
"The workers are a key ingredient in our club, and without their contributions we wouldn't be able to put on our racing events," Jeff Dahnert, SCCA President and CEO, said. "This is one night of the year where we can stand up and recognize the work that they all put in during the season as volunteers, and single out just a few who have been recognized by their peers."
This year's winners include:
Emergency Services - John Kielb (Cal Club Region)
Flagging and Communications - Verne Wandell (Western Michigan Region)
Pit and Grid - Joelle Pence (Southern West Virginia Region)
Race Administration - Michelle McColl (Colorado Region)
