National Transportation Consultants, Inc., Continues Partnership
As Official DOT Consulting Firm of Tony Stewart Racing
Partnership Renews as Random Roadcheck Period Runs June 7 – 9
INDIANAPOLIS (June 6, 2016) – National Transportation Consultants, Inc. (NTCI), a leader in transportation safety consulting, announced today the continuation of its partnership with Tony Stewart Racing (TSR) as the team’s official Department of Transportation (DOT) consulting firm. As part of the associate partnership, TSR will utilize NTCI’s services to maintain and continue to build on the team’s commitment to safe transportation as it travels the United States and Canada to compete at more than 70 different racetracks.
“Our partnership with Tony Stewart Racing is in its eighth year and we couldn’t be more pleased to continue the relationship,” said Ryan Billet, President of NTCI. “TSR’s commitment to establishing and maintaining a DOT safety and compliance program shows a strong commitment to safe driving. NTCI looks forward to expanding to work with other World of Outlaws (WoO) Craftsman Sprint Car Series teams and other forms of short-track racing in developing the same type of DOT safety and compliance programs. TSR’s proactive approach to DOT safety and compliance enables the team to continue to be a leader in the world of safety.”
The announcement comes just as the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) is ready to begin this year’s 72-hour Roadcheck program, scheduled to run Tuesday through Thursday. CVSA inspectors will be stationed at more than 2,500 locations across North America. The annual three-day roadside commercial vehicle safety crackdown brings out inspectors in force who, this year, will place special focus on tire safety.
Roadcheck is the largest commercial-vehicle-targeted enforcement program in the world with an average of 17 trucks or buses being inspected every minute from Canada to Mexico during the 72-hour period. Each year, approximately 10,000 CVSA-certified local, state, provincial and federal inspectors at 2,500 locations across North America perform the truck and bus inspections.
For the 2016 racing season, the TSR No. 15 Bad Boy Off Road/Chevrolet Performance backed entry of seven-time and reigning WoO champion Donny Schatz carries the NTCI logo. TSR’s DOT program has expanded in recent years along with the team’s growth, and the importance of safe transportation has become a top priority.
“NTCI offers a great program that helps Tony Stewart Racing keep our teams up to date on DOT safety and new compliance regulations,” said TSR team owner Tony Stewart. “It’s a perfect fit for TSR as NTCI is also based in Indiana. We’re very proud to continue our partnership with NTCI again this season, and we’re looking forward to continuing to hold our transportation program to the highest level of safety compliance.”
