SCCA Tabs Kummer As Director of Club Racing
Kummer’s role with the organization will focus on the National Office-operated programs, specifically the 2013 rollout of the Majors program. Kummer will work closely with the regions to put together those events and will oversee and guide the Club Racing Technical Department.
A 30-year member of SCCA, Kummer has worked with the SouthEast Division and Atlanta Region in a variety of leadership capacities, and has helped to restore the American Road Race of Champions to one of the premier events on the schedule. Kummer is also a long time racer, with wins behind the wheel of both SCCA Club Racing and Solo cars.
In his position, Kummer will report to Terry Ozment, the Vice President of Club Racing.
“When we posted this position, we wanted someone familiar with the Club and the challenges the Regions face,” said Ozment. “Butch’s experience in all facets of SCCA activities fit that bill, and we’re glad to have him on board.”
Initially, Kummer will split time working from both the National office in Topeka and his Woodstock, Ga., home, where he lives with his wife, Harriett.
Once this job came open, I knew it was something I wanted to do,” Kummer said. “I’ve been passionate about racing my entire life, and as a long-time member of the SCCA I want to do my part to help keep the Club moving in such a positive direction. There’s a lot to learn, but we’ve got some great people working on this Majors concept and I’m looking forward to helping build the program.”
