Stock Car Steel’s Greg Fornelli Named Chairman
CONCORD, N.C. – The North Carolina Motorsports Association board of directors elected a new executive committee including a new chairman during an annual board meeting in February.
The election took place after Steve Earwood stepped down after seven years as chairman. Greg Fornelli, president and owner of Stock Car Steel & Aluminum, Inc., was elected chairman. Fornelli has been on the NCMA board since 2005, serving as vice-chairman prior to the election.
Fornelli, 47, started Stock Car Steel in 1996. The company, based in Mooresville, offers a large and diverse product line of metals and plastics, servicing all industries including motorsports. A cancer survivor, Fornelli is known for his colorful and energetic personality.
“Having been involved with NCMA for eight years, I have witnessed a tremendous amount of growth and maturity in our association,” said Fornelli. “Steve has done a remarkable job, and I am looking forward to continuing NCMA’s mission to support and promote the motorsports industry in North Carolina while bringing a fresh perspective to this leadership role.”
In addition to Fornelli, the board also elected Ian Prince, Roush Fenway Racing’s chief sustainability officer, to the vice-chair position. Hendrick Motorsports Executive Vice President Bobby Rice retained the position of treasurer while John Hondros, senior vice president of SunTrust Banks, Inc., was named secretary.
Earwood, owner of Rockingham Dragway, will remain on the executive committee in the past chair position. The NCMA board of directors is made up of members of the motorsports industry including team principals, promoters, business owners, bankers and industry professionals.
