This has to do with the BOD who hired him and gave him his marching
orders. After all, he is just their paid figurehead...

Because I happen to disagree with some of the decisions that get made?
Why does my opinion bother you so much? 

I do not hate the SCCA. I think at the local level it is just great with
the exception of regions that have too much power for their own good.
No, the problem resides at the BOD. We only get to vote for one of 11
individuals that have total control over how the club's money is spent.
I don't think I am alone in thinking that the SCCA has eventually
totally screwed up any and all pro racing they have tried to organize.
Give me an example of a good decision in recent history.
