Jerry Doctor

Jerry Doctor - 1945-2015

From the family of Jerry Doctor,

We regret to inform everyone that we have lost Jerry after a long struggle with heart disease today (4/7/2015). Jerry has always held a special place for the SCCA, and its members, in his heart. And we cannot begin to express our thanks at the outpouring of support we have already received from each of you.

Jerry spent much of his time in the SCCA, as a board member, and as an RE trying to do whatever he thought was best for the club and its members. But, he also put equal passion into chronicling the history of our sport via his photography, always taking great care that at least one image, of each driver, from each car was recorded in film for each event.

His efforts did not begin or end with the SCCA though; he was also a chemistry teacher for roughly 40 years within the Omaha Public Schools and, later, the University of Nebraska at Omaha. He taught chemistry to any student who wanted to learn and he was dedicated to helping those students not only to succeed, but to excel.

But, most importantly, he was a son, a brother, a father, and a grandfather. He was always there for each of us, to teach us, to scold us, or to love us as he deemed necessary and we love him for it. He is survived by his sister, his daughter, and his two grandchildren and he is greatly missed already.

Thanks again for all the support you are giving us as we try to find our way through this troubling time.

— April & Tim Walter

Welcome to NRSCCA History

This website has been independently funded and operated by a team of NRSCCA members since its creation in 2003.  Our team members range in length of membership from 24 years to 45 years with a combined total of 162 years of membership.

If you are curious about the History Team, click on "Etcetera" above.

Our Purpose

The purpose of this website is to both preserve and share the 60+ years of history of the members of the Nebraska Region Sports Car Club of America.  The size of this site at its "completion" (which most of the current History Team will not live to see) will be nothing short of staggering.

The purpose isn't just to present the cold historical facts of when we were founded and the names of the founding members, although that information is included.  It also isn't just a list of who won the annual awards for the past 60 years, but that information can be found here as well.

This is a place to once again see the smiling, youthful faces of friends who have grown old; to fondly remember those who have passed on, vehicles that rusted away, and event locations that are no longer available.  It is a place to read stories that have been passed down for generations, but this time in the words of the people who were actually there.

This website, however, is not the least bit useful for current members who want to find out their standing in this year's activity points, and there is no information about the next event or how to join the Nebraska Region SCCA.  If you want current information, please visit http://nrscca.com/ and tell them we sent you.

We appreciate your visit, your bookmark, and, of course, your help!
