As the Tire Rack SCCA Time Trials National Tour Powered by Hagerty (TTNT) grows, so does the staff that makes these wonderful events possible around the country. Today, SCCA confirms the addition of two staffers who to enrich the communications process internally for the benefit of participants, and externally through the new-for-2022 LIVE TTNT audio broadcasts.
John Hunter, SCCA’s National Time Trials Manager, said Gregg Ginsberg will be the TTNT Announcer/Sound Specialist, and Ryan Cheek has joined the team as Time Trials Administrative Assistant. Ginsberg will be at each TTNT event, as well as the Tire Rack Time Trials Nationals, to perform announcer duties on site and online via TTNT’s new, live audio presentations accessible through SCCA.com. Cheek will be helping with day-to-day Time Trials Program operations that include responding to email queries, processing Time Trials license requests, and managing “wait list” matters for events.
“I am super excited about the addition of both Ryan and Gregg,” Hunter said. “Gregg has been very involved in SCCA Road Racing as both a driver and announcer. Ryan has been a longtime participant who really ‘gets’ the Time Trials program and has a high level of passion for the sport. Any time you have a chance to harness talent and passion at the level of these two, the program will be far better for it.”
Ginsberg was a track day enthusiast before exploring wheel-to-wheel racing in 2003 with SCCA’s Washington D.C. Region, where he was named the Region’s Rookie of the Year. He was also part of the announce team at Summit Point Motorsports Park that lent their voices to at-track race coverage of SCCA events.
In 2017, Ginsberg joined the Super Tour Radio presented by Hoosier Racing Tire broadcast squad that delivers audio commentary for Hoosier Super Tour races across the country. He has also provided audio commentary in support of several National Championship Runoffs, was the voice of the inaugural Pine Mountain Hill Climb, anchored Hoosier Racing Tire eSports Super Tour presentations, and been part of the Time Trials Nationals audio broadcast from NCM Motorsports Park the past two years.
“I’m really looking forward to the 2022 Time Trials National Tour season and plunging into this distinct form of motorsports competition and the SCCA community that supports it with great vigor,” said Ginsberg, who is also a member of SCCA’s Washington, D.C. and North Carolina Regions. “Being at each event affords me the opportunity to learn more about the people and personalities that make Time Trials tick — be it drivers, crew members or volunteers. Everybody has a story, and my goal is to share those tales during broadcasts so the entire SCCA family can see why Time Trials National Tour stops shouldn’t be missed.”
Cheek, a member of SCCA’s Central Carolinas Region, discovered her love for driving on curvy Appalachian backroads. She later jumped into competitive motorsports through autocross, and has also experienced drag racing, drifting, karting, track days and time trials driving.
Cheek has been an impressive competitor at several SCCA Time Trials events, and has won her class at the Chasing The Dragon Hillclimb and Pine Mountain Hillclimb, setting course records along the way.
“I’ve been an active participant at several SCCA Time Trials events in the last two years,” Cheek noted. “As such, I’m very aware of the needs of competitors, and I’m dedicated to making the Time Trials program a continued success.”
