Getting To Know… Scott Padgitt (MotoAmerica/)

Like the majority of those who work in the MotoAmerica paddock, it’s a labor of love. Scott Padgitt fits that description to a tee. As MotoAmerica’s Chief Pit Steward, Padgitt is at every round, from start to finish, and rarely seems to stop moving. And when he’s not working, you might find him running around the track. Literally.

What was your introduction to the motorcycle world?

I started working corners at car races here at Road Atlanta back in the early ‘90s. That progressed to racing cars in SCCA Solo II, Solo I and then road racing. I bought a motorcycle in 2000 and quickly discovered that I could go a lot faster for a lot less money racing a motorcycle.  So, I sold the race car and bought a racing bike. I club raced with WERA in Southeast for about 10 years. Then I discovered that the young guns were getting faster, and I wasn’t, so I stopped racing in about 2010.
