The National Auto Sport Association (NASA) announced today that Steve and Barbara Nix, long time Florida Region Directors and founders of the Performance Drivers Club, will be handing off the region to a new leader for the 2012 season.  Steve and Barbara have developed a solid foundation for the new effort that will be led by NASA veteran Jon Felton and backed by the NASA National Office. Felton has over thirteen years of experience with NASA at the regional level in the Mid-Atlantic region and has also been NASA’s National NASA-X Director since the program’s inception.

Chief Divisional Director John Lindsey said that “While I am sad to see Steve and Barbara leaving the ranks, I am pleased to welcome Jon into his new role as the Florida Region Director. We are very grateful to Steve and Barbara for their many years of hard work and we look forward to seeing where we can take the region with Jon at the helm.”

New Florida Region Director Jon Felton added “I am very excited to get working on building up the grids in Florida. This is an amazing opportunity and I can’t wait to get to know all of our Florida drivers in the next few months.” Jon Felton can be reached at
