Memorial Day Weekend May 28 - 30th
At the February Board of Trustee meeting, the Board confirmed our region's commitment to return to Pocono Raceway for the 2021 season.
Terry Hanushek and Dave Hofmann have agreed to lead the region's efforts for 2021 with the assistance of Butch O'Connor as Chief Steward and support from Darrell Anthony and Chris Mosley.
For those of you that do not know Terry, he is a dual member of NNJR and SJR as well as a National Licensed Race Steward and Race Administrator. Dave is currently a member of SJR and was active in NNJR in the past; he was a Race Chair for NNJR events several years ago. Butch O'Connor was NNJR Race Chair the last time we were at Pocono in 2017 and will be the Head Race Steward in 2021.
Needless to say the event will be subject to Pennsylvania State Covid-19 restrictions and will be in full compliance with SCCA guidelines.
Terry will build on the work he and Brandon Fetch did for the 2020 event which was canceled due to Covid restrictions. Terry and Dave will focus their initial efforts in six areas: Administration (Budget, Sanction and Supplement Regs), Staffing, Equipment, Track Liaison/Contract, Covid-19 Protocols and Track Configuration/Layout.
As more information becomes available, updates will be provided to the Region's membership.
