Doug Campbell Named
2012 South Bend SCCA Outstanding
Driver of the Year
"At the SCCA banquet last night (Sunday Jan 20, 2013) I was (very unexpectedly) awarded the 2012 Outstanding Driver of the Year. I won the South Bend region National race at Gingerman last year which must have helped a lot. A 5th place finish at the June Sprints helped my divisional standings. So I get the award for the year! I am pretty excited. Ironically the award is named after BJ Swanson who was a Formula 5000 driver who died at Mid-Ohio in 1975. The same place my dad passed away 11 years later.
Interesting to note that the 2000 winner was Bob Gregory. A very nice SRF racer who helped me get into SCCA racing in 1997. He was a great guy who got into racing late in life. He ended up racing into his 70's. Unfortunately he died a couple of years ago.
Anyway, it was a very interesting and suprising evening that I was happy to share with my family. Thanks for reading!"
