The Sports Car Club of America is shocked and saddened to learn of the sudden passing of Steve Harris, serving the Board of Directors as the Area 4 representative, on Thursday evening. Harris, of Dayton, Ohio, was a long-time steward, a Club Racing competitor, and Club member. He was 65.
From John Walsh, Chairman of the SCCA Board of Directors:
"I can safely speak for all of the Board when I say we are shocked, and saddened, today. This is a tremendous loss for the Board and the Club. Steve was the workhorse of our Board, and happily took on every challenge presented to him. His energy and enthusiasm. especially in his leadership with our subsidiaries - SCCA Enterprises and SCCA Pro Racing - will be missed, and our thoughts are with his family, friends and co-workers."
More information will be released as it becomes available.

Besides being our Area 4 Director,
Steve was a good friend of many in Indy Region. It was a common sight to see him at our Indy Region Club Racing events over the years as Steward, especially the
Indy Grand Prix each July. For me personally, it was fun to see him driving around in one of the pace cars at the Runoffs, waving to him from around the course while waiting for the next run group to commence.
He will be sadly missed.
