GREGG RODGERS
Owner/Team Principal/Driver Coach/Driver

A degree in Operations Management from Florida State University, a lifetime spent in and around racing, personally preparing and racing GTA road race stock cars, and 7 years in Healthcare administration has provided an excellent background for race team management. Since founding Pinnacle Autosports in 2002, Gregg’s role has evolved from mechanic and fabricator to that of team principal. As team principal Gregg is responsible for the day to day operations. This includes procurement of all equipment and parts required by the race team, marketing, client and business development, strategic planning and the overall management of Pinnacle’s commitments. Gregg’s role at the track is that of team manager and driver coach. Ultimately, Gregg is responsible for the product that Pinnacle delivers to its clients.

Never satisfied with the status quo, Gregg has spent the last 9 years creating an organization that is known for having the most well prepped cars at the track. A stickler for detail, Gregg oversees every aspect of Pinnacle Autosports’ product. When Gregg is not working on customer cars, you will find him sharing his passion with his wife, Stacy, at the track racing their GTA cars with both the SCCA and NASA. When not at the track, Stacy and Gregg are foster parents for the Miniature Schnauzer Rescue of North Texas.
