SFI Foundation Inc.
Arnold “Arnie” Kuhns has made numerous contributions to the motorsports industry. In 1984, he became the president of SFI, a non-profit foundation established to issue and administer safety standards for specialty/performance automotive and racing products.
At the time SFI had only two employees and four product standards for one race-sanctioning body. Since then, he has helped SFI grow to nine employees responsible for 80 specifications, and the organization is affiliated with nearly 40 sanctioning bodies.
Kuhns has been awarded the USAC Jack O’Neal Award for Motorsports Safety and the SCCA George Snively Award for Outstanding Contributions in Motorsports Safety.
