David Standridge is stepping down as National Director of Thunder Roadster GTR, effective immediately. Jason Oehler has been appointed as the new National Director of the Thunder Roadster GTR series, which uses a purpose-built racing car manufactured by U.S. Legend Cars International. The series focuses on fun, safe, and affordable racing while encouraging driver development and close competition. Oehler has been the NASA Great Lakes series leader since 2022.
Standridge had been National Director for a number of years and has played a key role in the development of the Thunder Roadster GTR. Oehler brings a wealth of experience to the role, and is focused on the growth and parity of the series.
“After 25 years of racing, I’ve decided to hang up my racing shoes. I cannot think of a better person to take over the series as the National Director. Jason is well respected and liked by all the GTR racers across the country. I am confident that the series will be in good hands with him,” said Standridge a NASA NorCal racer. “I plan to use the extra time to get back into golf, tennis, mountain biking, skiing, boating, etc. It’s been a good run but it’s time to pass the torch to the next generation of racers.
