When Steve Johnson took over as head of the SCCA, I was chosen to work with
him at Road America to familiarize him with F&C. He spent the better part
of a three day weekend tagging along, so we had plenty of time to talk. If
what Joe has indciated is correct, Steve Johnson didn't accomplish anything
in seven years, as these were the same issues he was hired to correct.
I dropped my membership with the SCCA that same year for what I will say
were personal reasons; and that decision was made before Steve Johnson was
even hired. In seven years I haven't regretted walking away from the SCCA
with the exception of the free spectating of the on track competition,
which I seldom had time to watch.
The SCCA is generally a good organization that has succeeded against all odds.
