Amy Brock – SCCA Corner Marshall
Jim and Amy Brock are one of our husband and wife teams that helps manage and work many of our track events in the Southeast Division of SCCA. They are efficient and responsible in handling their duties but they also do a great job of keeping it fun.

Favorite stories from your time in and around racing : I was working turn 1 at Petite in 2009 and Jim was working turn 2. Scott Sharpe came thru 1 and a Porsche was exiting Pro Pits and Sharpe swerved to avoid and hit the wall right at the corner station. I was looking up the hill and all I could see were tires bouncing across the track and pieces of green Patron racecar exploding. It was a tense couple of minutes waving the yellow and not knowing if Jim had been hurt.
Amy, thanks to you and your husband for all you do for southeastern motorsports. We are glad to have you both working with and for us.
Now… go hit Highway 17 and get that vacation in before it’s too cold!
