McNally GPS Maps Pilot Flying J Truck Driver Race Course
SOUTHERN PINES, NC — Truck drivers flying on race tracks across the United States will be guided by a Rand McNally truck GPS as they compete in the Pilot Flying J Truck Driver Challenge.
During the season, professional hauler drivers from IndyCar, NASCAR, and the NHRA series, will navigate road courses modeled after real-world obstacles, testing their safe driving abilities.
“The professional truck drivers in the Pilot Flying J Truck Driver Challenge are some of the best in the business. A new Rand McNally TND device will complement the safe driving of our competitors nicely, as they’re guided safely to each raceway across the United States,” said Mark Hazelwood, president of Pilot Flying J.
When the winners are announced at the end of season, the top-3 drivers in each series will receive a new Rand McNally TND truck GPS unit.
“Rand McNally’s TND truck GPS devices are built specifically for professional drivers with truck-specific navigation, driver tools and safety features,” said Kendra Ensor, VP of marketing at Rand McNally. “We’re very happy to sponsor the Driver Challenge, which promotes driver skill and puts a positive spotlight on safe driving.”
The 2014 season is the 11th year of the driver challenge and will have 12 racing venues and about 150 professional transport drivers competing.
