The SEMA Truck and Off-Road Alliance (TORA) has recognized Sara Morosan of LGE-CTS Motorsports as this week’s TORA Volunteer Spotlight Member. Morosan is an accomplished industry advocate, business leader and previous select committee volunteer whose contributions have led to the success of many effective strategies, programs and builds that specifically address the needs of the truck and off-road segment.
In addition to TORA, Morosan is also an active volunteer for SEMA Cares and the SEMA Businesswomen’s Network (SBN), where she plays a vital role in advocating for women in the industry and helping unite the voice of the automotive aftermarket while making a difference in young lives.
Get to know what inspires her about the industry in her Q&A with the SEMA Truck and Off-Road Alliance:
SEMA: What inspired you to pursue a career in the truck and off-road industry?
Sara Morosan: I grew up in the industry and have always had a love for truck and off-road, but a greater love for my industry friends and friends that I now call family. I grew up going off-roading and have always felt like the desert was my home.
SEMA: Why did you decide to volunteer for TORA? How has it or will it impact you?
SM: I was told by my mentor to volunteer for TORA eight years ago, so I signed up! It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I would have never met some of the most important people in my life today. I have learned so much from so many of them. I have a great rolodex of amazing people that help me every day with learning new things that I would have never learned.
SEMA: What advice do you have for someone pursuing a career in the automotive aftermarket?
SM: I would definitely tell anyone that is pursuing a career in the automotive industry to go out and network, find events that are going on near you and get to know the people in the industry. SEMA has some great councils and networks to join or help volunteer on as well. Follow them on social media and find out where the next event is.
SEMA: What is your dream truck or off-road vehicle? Where would we find you in it on any weekend?
SM: Oooohhhh... I would say a trophy truck because who doesn't want a trophy truck, right?! But I love to go up the rock sections; It’s just fun! So it would have to be a super-rad Ultra 4 car, something that goes fast (even though I don’t, yet!) and something that I can take in the rocks section and act like I am one of the Campbells, lol! If it’s a relaxing weekend, then you’ll likely find me just driving around the desert and exploring, heading out to off-road races or going on trail runs with our favorite club.
