EVAN KNOLL PROMOTES LATRELL PRESTON
TO ROLE OF MOTORSPORTS DIRECTOR FOR KNOLL GAS – TORCO RACE FUELS, INC.
Evan Knoll, President of Knoll Gas Motorsports –
Torco Race Fuels, Inc., has appointed Latrell Preston to the expanded role of
Director of Operations for his Knoll Gas Motorsports – Torco Race Fuels
conglomeration of companies.
Preston, who already serves as Chief Financial Officer,
for Knoll’s parent company General Sales & Service, will direct the
motorsports day-to-day operations as well as manage the various sponsorships of
race teams and sanctioning bodies. He retains his position of second Vice President
Knoll pointed out that
he’s groomed Preston for the position since
2004 and the time is now to let him take control of the vast responsibilities.
“Latrell has been my right
hand for the last two years and someone I fully trust and see more than capable
of directing this company,” Knoll said. “I probably would have pursued this
sooner but we needed to fill some key infrastructure positions before we could
step forward with this plan.
“I am very excited this
opportunity is available. It makes sense that he controls my sponsorships
because he’s the one signing the checks anyway.”
Preston, a University of Indiana graduate and basketball
player, plans to keep the momentum rolling strong.
“Momentum means everything
in this industry and we certainly have a lot working in our favor now,” Preston said. “I am totally elated that Evan has
entrusted me with this position. It has given me goose bumps just thinking
about the future and the things we have planned.”
