As the Sports Car Club of America’s (SCCA) first head of Pro Racing, Kaser changed American road racing forever. He was the chief architect of several of the most successful series in history. Kaser was hired by 2014 inductee John Bishop in the early ‘60s to create the United States Road Racing Championship (USRRC). Its success led to one of the most ambitious — and popular — sports car series ever: the Canadian-American Challenge Cup (Can-Am), for short. At its height, Kaser’s “series with no rules,” which began in 1966, attracted six-figure crowds and the world’s top drivers and constructors. The same year, Kaser launched the similarly successful Trans-Am sedan championship. “Kaser’s success with these series resulted in the most significant change ever to the SCCA,” wrote the sanctioning body. “The organization turned from being an amateur’s club to include a professional, international sanctioning body and organizer.” Kaser was also an accomplished amateur driver, taking a class win at the 1964 Sebring 12 Hours. He was inducted into the SCCA Hall of Fame in 2017.
