The NASCAR Foundation today announced two key additions to its Board of Directors, further strengthening the organization’s leadership and strategic relationships within the racing industry. Veteran race car driver Hurley Haywood and Rev Racing Co-owner Dr. Jennifer Satterfield-Siegel accepted nominations to join the board led by Chairman Mike Helton.
“Being able to include the leadership of industry veterans such as Hurley Haywood and Dr. Jennifer Satterfield-Siegel to our Board of Directors is significant,” stated Mike Helton, Chairman, The NASCAR Foundation. “We look forward to their support as we seek to expand the reach and relevance of The NASCAR Foundation across the U.S. while continuing to grow its impact for children.”
Haywood, a legendary endurance racing driver, is widely known for winning the Rolex 24 At DAYTONA five times, the 24 Hours of Le Mans three times and 12 Hours of Sebring twice. He is credited with the 1988 Trans-Am title, two IMSA GT Championship titles and 23 wins, three Norelco Cup championships, a SuperCar title and seven IndyCar starts. Haywood built his career and made history behind the wheel of a #59 Brumos Porsche, racing for the Jacksonville, Florida-based team for over 40 years. Haywood served as Chief Driving Instructor for the Porsche Sports Driving School for many years and remains active in an honorary capacity for the school today. He also serves as an Ambassador for Porsche participating in many appearances and events worldwide.
“Becoming a part of The NASCAR Foundation has incredible meaning to me,” stated Haywood. “While I may have spent my career in sports car racing, my love for all forms of motorsports is great and I consider the work of The NASCAR Foundation to be so important to children today.”
