Heyward Wagner’s SCCA path started at birth. His parents were avid flaggers, serving as chiefs for events like the Runoffs and Chimney Rock Hillclimb. Growing up in the Club, he first got involved in Flagging and Communications before focusing on autocross competition. His passion for the Club and sport carried over into his professional life, working first on the National Solo Field Staff, then in experiential automotive marketing and as an instructor for the Evolution Performance Driving School. That experience led to an opportunity in the outdoor education and leadership industry. There he worked with summer camps and adult groups to create positive experiences, build strong teams and coach leadership skills. In 2014, Heyward brought this experience back to the Club, joining the National Office staff to launch the Experiential Programs department, designed to blend lessons learned outside of SCCA with the Club’s passion for motorsport.
