NAWT will be holding the NAWT Shootout in Lucas Oil Stadium arena on Tuesday, February 18, 2020 from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM. The purpose of the contest is to bring awareness to the updated Federal Regulations regarding Pre-Trip inspections. It will give individuals who will be testing soon for their CDLs an opportunity to practice their Pre-Trip Inspections. It will allow those that already have their CDLs an opportunity to learn what the new regulations cover and how to respond to road-side inspections.
After the contest NAWT will have on hand Fred Yuhasz, CDL Instructor and examiner with North Montco Technical Career Center to discuss the changes to the Pre-trip inspection process under the revised regulations from 2015. Fred will be providing valuable information during two presentations scheduled for Wednesday, February 19th in the Lucas Oil Stadium. Presentation #1 will be from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM and Presentation #2 will be from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM.
The Pre-trip inspection portion of the exam is very intricate and now involves giving oral reasons for the inspection of components.
Individuals will be given and pre-trip checklist sheet with truck sections listed. They are to identify any issues they find with the truck while they complete a Pre-trip inspection. There will be a $10/initial try fee. If contestants miss one or more issues, there will be an opportunity to “re-try” for a $5/re-try fee.
The individual with the most correctly identified problems will be the winner. If there are multiple winners all names will be placed in a hat and the top 3 will be drawn for prizes.
Grand Prize will be a Crust Buster (63 cc engine, 80” shaft, 2 blade impeller) donated by Crust Buster.
