Texas Motor Speedway Appoints Rob Ramage As Senior VP, GM
Veteran Texas Motor Speedway executive and general counsel Rob Ramage has been promoted to Senior Vice President and General Manager of Texas Motor Speedway, as announced by Speedway Motorsports President and Chief Executive Officer Marcus Smith.
“I grew up with racing and have been a NASCAR and INDYCAR fan for as long as I can remember, so every day at Texas Motor Speedway is exciting to me,” said Ramage. “I can remember when Bruton Smith announced he was bringing NASCAR to Texas and then being here on day one as a fan with my dad and brother.”
Ramage succeeds esteemed promoter Eddie Gossage, who stepped down in June after 25 years at the helm of Texas Motor Speedway and more than three decades with Speedway Motorsports.
Ramage has worked for Speedway Motorsports since 2013, serving as General Counsel & Director of Governmental Affairs and Senior Vice President of Finance & Compliance at Texas Motor Speedway. His efforts have spanned a variety of capacities, including risk management and working with government entities, business leaders, and community advocates.
Before joining Speedway Motorsports, Ramage practiced law in Dallas, Texas, focusing on complex litigation, intellectual property, and business transactions.
Ramage currently serves on numerous boards of directors that focus on supporting veterans, law enforcement-related causes, and transportation matters. In addition, he was recognized for his charitable work for veterans by being named an honorary Commander of the United States Air Force. His philanthropic activities include Speedway Children’s Charities, the State Fair of Texas, Folds of Honor, Catholic Charities, Texas Parks and Wildlife, among many others.
Texas Motor Speedway will host its grand finale for the 25th Season of Speed with the October 17 Autotrader EchoPark Automotive 500 NASCAR Cup Series playoff race.
