Road Atlanta Welcomes New Track President Rick Humphrey

Well established motorsports leader Rick Humphrey has been named president and general manager of Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta.

Since 2014, Humphrey has served as vice president of IMSA Properties, and Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta has served as his base of operation. In that role, he oversaw management of Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta, Sebring International Raceway and Seven Sebring Hotel.

In his new position, Humphrey will concentrate his efforts on the day-to-day operation and promotion of Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta and will report to David Pettit, IMSA senior vice president of marketing and business operations.

Longtime motorsports executive and former Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta president and general manager Geoff Lee announced his retirement from the company.

“We are grateful to Geoff Lee for his many contributions to the success of Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta and wish him the very best in his retirement,” said Pettit. “Geoff and Rick Humphrey worked together to transform Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta into the world-class facility it has become, and Rick is a natural choice to succeed Geoff. In his previous role, Rick developed a firm understanding of our sport and operation; we expect a seamless transition.”

The first major public event that Humphrey will oversee as track president is Drift Atlanta, July 3-4. The 23rd Annual Motul Petit Le Mans, Oct. 14-17, rounds out the remainder of the 2020 spectator calendar.
