Race fans will get a chance to hear Doug Fehan speak about his career and Corvette Racing at the general meeting of the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) Chicago Region. The meeting will be held October 22 at 7 p.m. at K1 Speed in Addison, Ill., and is open to the public.
Fehan is program manager for Corvette Racing, which he helped start in 1999. During his time with the highly successful program, its teams have achieved 94 victories in endurance racing – 82 in the American Le Mans Series (ALMS), seven at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, one at Daytona and four this season in the Tudor United SportsCar Championship series.
Fehan began his career in motorsports by racing a homebuilt Chevelle stock car on the USAC circuit in the late 1960s. A chance encounter with GM Racing Director Herb Fishel launched his career with GM, first with Oldsmobile’s IMSA World Sports Car program and then GM’s factory-backed Corvette racing program. Fehan received the Spirit of Le Mans Award from the Automobile Club De l’Ouest in 2014 and the ALMS “From the Fans” award in 2004 and 2008.
Doug is the reason you always wanted that YELLOW Corvette!

To all SCCA Licensed Workers:
This week SCCA Club Racing announced our 2014 BFGoodrich Tires Worker of the Year Program click here.
Based on feedback from the workers in attendance at the 2014 SCCA National Convention in Charlotte last month, the program is changing this year to once again recognize one worker in each of our 10 specialties rather than one person per division. Program details can be found on the SCCA Website; either under the “Downloads” tab on the home page, or the “Worker Tab” on the 2014 Runoffs page.
Nominations for these awards are critical, so the importance of your participation cannot be overstated. Between now and August 8th, please nominate workers you think should be considered. They don’t have to be in your specialty or your division. They should be someone who goes above and beyond on a regular basis to support our events. Nominations are easy to submit click here; so we hope you will all take a few minutes to recommend one of your peers during the course of the 2014 Racing Season!
Finally, thanks to each and every one of you for all you do to make our events the safe, fun and exciting experiences that they are!
SCCA Vice President of Club Racing

Chicago Region at the Show!
The Chicago Region had a booth at the Race & Performance Expo in St. Charles on Feb. 22-23 to introduce show-goers to all the SCCA and Chicago Region have to offer. The booth, staffed by Chicago Region volunteers including Bill Crawford, Dennis and Patrick Morgan, Scott Sanda, Todd Gray, Dave Vacarro, Ed Midgley, Chris Gregor, Bob Stone, Tracy Ramsey, Bob Lindsay and others featured Ed Midgley’s beautiful Formula F car as well as video showing Solo, PDX and Club Racing action.
Interest from the show attendees was high, with quite a few people asking questions and leaving their contact information for follow-up. Brochures and flyers touting the Solo, PDX and Club Racing programs were available and many attendees walked away with information on the SCCA and how to join the Chicago Region.
All the SCCA members staffing the booth agreed the show was a success and had a great time talking to such interested “car people”.
Special thanks to Chris Gregor and Ed Midgley for setting up and taking down the booth, to Ed Midgely for providing his race car for display, and to Claire Ball for making the arrangements with the show management.
Pictures of the event can be found HERE.

While Carl was unable to attend the event, we were fortunate enough to receive and be able to read a letter on his behalf. This letter can be viewed HERE. It is a reminder of both the history of the region, and the strength of the shoulders the region was built upon.
