Rand McNally has signed on to be a sponsor of 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. When the safest and most skilled drivers are announced at the end of their respective seasons, the top-3 drivers in each series will receive a new Rand McNally TND truck GPS unit.
This partnership is Rand McNally’s first venture with the Pilot Flying J Truck Driver Challenge.
A Rand McNally TND truck GPS device also will be used in the official Pilot Flying J Truck Driver Challenge transporter, driven by competition manager Joe Wernert. He will be driving the official transporter to twelve racing venues in 2014, using the Rand McNally device to navigate his way across the country. The Pilot Flying J Truck Driver Challenge, promoting safe driving on the interstate, is in its eleventh year of competition. There will be an expected 150 professional transport drivers competing during the 2014 season.
