After almost 30 years as the drag racing director at Sonoma Raceway, Georgia Seipel announced at our staff meeting yesterday that she will be retiring at the end of the year.
Her replacement will be non other than her son Kyle who has proven to be both a very successful promoter with his association with Peter Biondo and their Spring Fling big money ET bracket events which have been highly successful.
In addition, Kyle is a very successful racer himself who is highly regarded in the racing community.
Kyle is a very progressive thinker. Along with Biondo, they were the first to introduce the True Start system which would decide the lesser of the 2 infractions of a pair of red lights.
Kyle is one who thinks outside of the box and will bring some new ideas with him.
Georgia will be back from time to time to serve as a advisor which is a huge plus.
As sad as it is to see Georgia step down, each of us our indebted to her for the years and hard work which has helped make Sonoma Raceway one of the finest drag racing facilities in the country.
