NASCAR Names John Ferguson as Chief Human Resources Officer

NASCAR has announced that John Ferguson has been hired to lead human resources strategy for the sanctioning body as Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer. In this role, Ferguson will oversee NASCAR Human Resources and provide strategic leadership around talent acquisition, employee engagement, and culture development.

For nearly a decade, Ferguson served in HR roles at Monumental Sports & Entertainment (MSE) in Washington, DC, and most recently as vice president of People & Culture. 

Based in the Daytona Beach office in Florida, Ferguson will help develop HR strategies designed to support and engage employees across more than 20 office and race track locations in the US. He will also help build a company culture that is empowering, innovative, diverse, inclusive, and collaborative, according to NASCAR.

“John’s passion for people and his enthusiasm for building a strong working culture aligns well with our direction as a sport,” NASCAR President Steve Phelps said. “John brings a wealth of experience and tremendous energy to our sport, and we look forward to the impact of his leadership as NASCAR continues on its path to growth.”

Ferguson’s hire comes less than two years since NASCAR completed the merger with International Speedway Corporation.
