Security National celebrated the completion of the first of six buildings that will make up the new corporate campus located in Murray, Utah. The development will be known as 53rd Center. Scott Quist, CEO of SNFC, help the honor of cutting the ribbon.
The center will be a key part of the development project marketing campaign as it is located right in the middle of the Salt Lake metro area. The center will feature six buildings with total leasable space exceeding 1 million square feet. While leasing demand continues to pick up for the first building at 53rd Center, SecurityNational Mortgage will be a major tenant.
Until now, production management and operations management have been scattered throughout the Salt Lake Valley. Bringing the Security National companies together under one roof will give us an opportunity to continue improving the speed and efficiency of our operations. We are all looking forward to the move, scheduled to be sometime in late fall of 2017.
AUSTIN, Tex., (September 3, 2017) – The final rounds of the Pirelli World Challenge SprintX Championship dealt CRP Racing the highest of highs and the lowest of lows at Circuit of the Americas. The team came out victorious in the triple header race weekend, winning SprintX Round 10, and finishing in third in the makeup of Round 4 with drivers Ryan Dalziel and Daniel Morad. A no-contact penalty during Round 9 dashed all hopes of a podium finish, resulting in the team losing the SprintX Championship by three points.
“It would be easy to be frustrated at how narrowly we missed out on the championship,” said Team Owner Nicholas Short. “However, the amount of work and success that went into this weekend is something to be proud of. Everyone on the team did an incredible job, and we I am grateful we could put on such a great show for our sponsors.”
Circuit of the Americas hosted the only triple header of the season, due to SprintX Round 4 of the Pirelli World Championship at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park being canceled due to weather. Ryan Dalziel started the race from third, and raced in the top five for the majority of his stint. He pitted from fourth, giving the car to Daniel Morad to finish with 30 minutes remaining. A battle immediately ensued with Johnny O’Connell and his Cadillac, with Morad taking the position to chase the sister Cadillac of Michael Cooper. With 12 minutes remaining, the battle intensified, and Morad made the pass for third with just a few laps remaining.
Morad qualified the No. 2 Mercedes AMG GT3 in fifth for Round 9, the second race of the season. As the field raced into turn one in the opening lap, Morad took the inside line alongside Alvaro Parente. As the field made it through turn one, Parente had contact with the Porsche of Pat Long, resulting in the stewards calling Morad in for avoidable contact. As Morad confirmed to the team he had no contact, the pit officials sought clarification from race control. Ultimately, he served the penalty, pitting from second place and rejoining in 10th. After rejoining, the Canadian pitted again for the mandatory driver change, with Ryan Dalziel taking over to the checker flag. Determined to make up lost positions, Dalziel charged forward, immediately gaining back lost ground. Two more cars were called to serve penalties, aiding in the Scotsman’s drive through the field. The finishing result came down to the final lap, as Dalziel and Jordan Taylor raced side by side for fifth position. A strong run out of the final corner gave Dalziel the position, earning the team a fifth place finish.
The fastest lap for the No. 2 Mercedes in Round 9 awarded Dalziel with a fifth place starting position for Round 10. Following his teammate’s racing line the day before, Dalziel took the green flag and went to the inside of turn one, jumping from fifth to third position. He slipped to third as the race went full course caution, where he stayed until the mandatory pit window opened. The No. 58 Porsche of Jorg Bergmeister pitted early, and Dalziel stayed out on track, laying down the car’s fastest laps of the race. He gained significant round on the No. 58 and came in to pit from third. Morad took over and rejoined in sixth, and when the rest of the field’s pit stops cycled through, the No. 2 Mercedes led the field. Morad held off heavy pressure from Pat Long in the Porsche to take the win, the team’s second of the 2017 season.
“It’s a great way to end the SprintX season,” said Morad. “Unfortunately a few penalties that were issued throughout the season ultimately cost us the championship. Regardless of that, it’s great to be able to give our sponsors multiple wins in the season, and to turn it around from the race yesterday. It feels good to get redemption.”
“It was an awesome day,” said Dalziel. “It was a great turn around for the team and was really well deserved. We had the best car in the field today. It was great to give Daniel the car in the front. He controlled the race and did a great job under pressure. I can’t say enough about CRP and Devilbiss. It’s a shame to come up so short on the SprintX Championship. We gave it a try, and we’ll see where we finish the season at Sonoma Raceway.”
One race weekend remains in the 2017 Pirelli World Challenge Championship, the Grand Prix of Sonoma in California, September 15-17. For more information, visit world-challenge.com.

HARRISBURG, N.C. (April 24, 2017) — In anticipation of the Pirelli World Challenge’s SprintX championship kicking off this weekend at Virginia International Raceway, CRP Racing has signed Canadian racer Daniel Morad to join Ryan Dalziel in the No. 2 Devilbiss Mercedes AMG GT3. As a five race championship within the existing 2017 calendar, the SprintX format will expand both races in the events from 50 minutes to 60 minutes, requiring each driver to complete no more than 35 minutes of racing.
While only 27 years old, Morad’s 10 year racing resume boats strong results. In 2007, the Toronto native won the Formula BMW USA Championship, setting a record of six race wins in one championship. In 2015, Morad’s career in sports car racing began to blossom when he finished second in the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Canada with nine podiums in ten races. The following year, he returned to the series to clinch the championship, earning four wins and ten podiums in twelve races. Morad closed out the 2016 race season with another championship title, winning the inaugural season of the IMSA Porsche GT3 North American Cup. His 2017 race season got off to the best kind of start, with a GTD class win at the Rolex 24 Hours At Daytona with Alegra Motorsports. Morad’s first laps in the No. 2 Mercedes AMG GT3 will occur on Wednesday at the promoter test day at Virginia International Raceway.
“I am really happy to join CRP for the 2017 SprintX Championship,” said Morad. “There were a lot of top drivers in the mix for the seat so it is a real honor to have been chosen to pursue this exciting challenge. The past 12 months have been career changing, and I really appreciate the opportunity from Nick Short and the whole team.”
Morad will join full time driver Ryan Dalziel in the No. 2 Mercedes AMG GT3, who has already completed three races with the team. Dalziel holds two second place finishes at the 3.27 mile, 17 turn road course in Alton, Virginia.
“I’m really looking forward to Virginia International Raceway,” said Dalziel. “I haven’t been there since the resurfacing, but we’ve heard it is perfect now. I am excited about the first SprintX race of this season, and hoping Daniel and I can get a win.”
The two will be up against strong competition in the already highly competitive series, as the SprintX events have attracted professional drivers from around the world.
Competitors will have just under four and a half hours of testing and practice before Saturday’s qualifying session. The current driver rankings hold Dalziel at a Gold, and Morad as a Silver, meaning their Pro/Pro lineup will not require a minimum amount of time spent in pit lane during the mandatory pit stop. Both drivers will have to complete a minimum of 25 minutes of racing, but no more than 35 minutes.
Race one of the Pirelli World Challenge SprintX Championship will begin Saturday, April 29 at 3:30PM ET, followed by Race 2 on Sunday the 30th at 1:15PM. The events of the weekend will air on CBS Sports Network, Sunday, May 7 at 6:00PM ET, but fans can find live timing and stream information at world-challenge.com/streamvideo.
