TOPEKA, Kansas (June 5, 2019) – Sports Car Club of America revealed today a restructuring plan with the senior management of its Rally and Solo programs beginning in 2019. Longtime program leader Howard Duncan will shift his focus to event operations for the Tire Rack SCCA National Solo® program, with the search beginning for a new hire to take on the role of oversight and development for the Rally and Solo departments.
Duncan, who joined the staff in 1990 and has been instrumental in the creation and continued development of the National Solo program, will remain in his current Sr. Director of Rally/Solo position through the 2019 Championship season before moving to the newly-created Sr. Manager of National Solo Field Operations position this upcoming offseason.
“The demands of running the Tire Rack SCCA National Solo series make it extremely difficult to also develop and manage the business side of the programs—these really need to be two different positions,” said SCCA Vice President and COO Eric Prill. “There wouldn’t be a National Solo program without Howard’s vision and dedication over the last three decades. He’s been flat-out through that time period, developing the series while managing all aspects of the autocross and rally programs and being a key member of the national staff.
“This restructuring provides an opportunity for him to focus specifically on operations for these 20-plus events each year.”
“I am looking forward to being able to concentrate my efforts on the Tire Rack SCCA National Solo program and to having the new Director bring a fresh perspective to business operations and the development of the Solo and Rally programs throughout the country at all levels,” said Duncan. “As the complexity and reach of all of these programs has grown over the years, it became increasingly clear to me that we needed to take this approach to see the Club grow to its full potential.”
The incoming Director of Rally/Solo will begin a new chapter for the programs, building on its solid foundation with a focus on member experience, operational excellence, technology and program development. Interested parties are encouraged to visit www.scca.com/careers.
