WISSOTA: Gramm To Become Executive Director

WISSOTA President Rob Palmer has announced the addition of Carson Gramm to its Board of Directors. Gramm will succeed Terry Voeltz as the executive director, who is set to retire later in the year.

“I think Carson will bring a lot of enthusiasm and new ideas to WISSOTA, and will be a good asset to our organization. We felt his education and experience at race track operations were exactly what we needed in this position, and we’re really looking forward to getting him involved more,” Palmer said.

Gramm, a native of Ipswich, SD, who currently resides in Sauk Rapids, MN, raced karts as a child and later raced Legends and WISSOTA Super Stocks. His father Mark Gramm was the track announcer at Brown County Speedway in Aberdeen, SD, for many years.

Gramm attended Minnesota State University - Mankato and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sport Management and a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics. After, he worked as the promoter at the WISSOTA-sanctioned Granite City Speedway (Sauk Rapids, MN).

Before graduation, Gramm also worked with Elko Speedway (MN) and the Bad Boy Buggies World Finals at Charlotte (NC) Motor Speedway.

“I’m thankful to the entire WISSOTA community for the opportunity to serve the promoters, drivers, and fans to improve the sport I’ve loved since I was a kid. I’m also very grateful for the opportunity that Granite City Speedway provided me over the past year. Moving from track management to a wider set of responsibilities will be a fun transition when I’m able to meet and share ideas with promoters around WISSOTA. By working with the member promoters, I believe we can become an even stronger organization. I’m looking forward to serving all of our promoters for years to come,” Gramm said.
