SCCA Pro Racing has named Sydney Davis Yagel as senior manager of race operations. Davis Yagel, who will focus on assisting the vice president in various operational roles including interfacing with sanctioning bodies, manufacturers, track promoters and sponsors, has spent the last 10 years managing MSR Houston events and schools. During her tenure at MSR Houston, Davis Yagel also held positions as the Circuit of the Americas Motorsports Operations Marshal Coordinator and as the Houston and Louisiana Grand Prix Race Chair.
“I am very pleased that Sydney has accepted the position of Senior Manager of Race Operations for SCCA Pro Racing here in Indianapolis,” said SCCA Pro Racing Vice President Steve Oseth. “Sydney’s varied background and passion will be a big asset for our Indy office.”
Davis Yagel, a 26-year member of the Sports Car Club of America, embraced her role in the SCCA by extending her expertise to serve as the Houston Race Chair for 10 years. She then moved on to serve as the Houston Region’s SCCA Regional Executive. Her exceptional volunteerism within the SCCA did not go unnoticed as she was awarded Worker of the Year for her efforts in race administration and the SCCA Member of Excellence in 2016.
“I am very excited to join the SCCA Pro Racing team. After a lifetime of being involved with the SCCA, this is the ideal next chapter of my career. I can’t wait to start this adventure, and I’m looking forward to hit the ground running,” said Davis Yagel.
