ROGER JOHNSON IS SCCA HALL OF FAME INDUCTEE

Hits: 611

In case you did not know, one of the Hall of Fame inductees for the upcoming SCCA national convention is a NWOR member. Roger Johnson is a longtime NWOR member (since 7-1-78) from Fostoria. He has quite a list of solo accomplishments (including 6 ProSolo championships) and general SCCA activities. The following excerpt is from an official SCCA announcement:
Roger E. Johnson: A multiple Solo Champion, Johnson was the first Solo competitor to bring major commercial attention to the sport through his sponsorship arrangement with BF Goodrich Tires. Johnson interacted with BF Goodrich dealers and his victories were featured in product advertising. This paved the way for major commercial support for the Solo National Championships, first from Yokohama, then from The Tire Rack®, as well as Valvoline’s support of ProSolo in the early 90s. Johnson is known just as much for his personality as his Solo skills. The annual Johnson Spirit of the Sport Award, named in his honor, was the first Solo award named after a participant and he served as a memorable emcee at the National Convention for many years.
