Alton-based Virginia International Raceway has promoted two executives.
Kerrigan Smith has been named president and chief operating officer, while Sandie Currie is now the facility’s chief strategy officer.
Smith’s new role expands on his previous position as COO of track operations. In addition to growing VIR, he also will oversee all VIR operations. Smith has been with VIR since 2010. Prior to that he spent eight years with Synergy Racing, formally G&W Motorsports, working his way up from pit crew to general manager.
Currie has been with VIR for more than 15 years, most recently serving as the COO of VIR’s resorts. In her new role, she will work closely with VIR owner and CEO Connie Nyholm on developing strategies to ensure the organization’s growth. Currie serves on the board of the Danville Community College Foundation, Riverview Rotary Club, Halifax Tourism and the Boys & Girls Club of the Danville Area.
