INDIANAPOLIS (June 1, 2015) – 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, the two-car TSR team 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 80 different racetracks.
“Our partnership with Tony Stewart Racing is in its seventh 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) and USAC teams 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.”
This week, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) conducts its annual 72-hour Roadcheck program beginning Tuesday, and concluding Thursday. CVSA inspectors will be stationed at more than 2,500 locations across North America. The focus of inspectors during this year’s three-day roadside commercial vehicle safety crackdown will be cargo securement.
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 2015 racing season, the WoO Sprint Car Series entries of six-time and reigning WoO champion Donny Schatz and 20-time WoO champion Steve Kinser will carry the NTCI logo. TSR’s DOT program continues to mirror the team’s growth with the importance of safe transportation continuing to be 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.”
