Simulators Give Rare Look into NASCAR Experience

McDonough, GA, Sept. 1, 2011

Bennett International Group (Bennett) joins the Owner/Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA) and Outlaw 5.O drag racer Danny Lowry to bring distracted driving simulators to the Atlanta Motor Speedway Labor Day NASCAR race series this weekend.

Atlanta Motor Speedway visitors will experience the effects of distracted driving, and the consequences, in a controlled environment using NASCAR and Mustang driving simulators that puts participants in the driver’s seat. Bennett will also have autographed giveaways from NASCAR drivers Matt Carter and Fain Skinner, pilots of the Go Green Racing’s (GGR) No. 39 CarportEmpire.com/Bennett Steel Structures Ford Mustang, which will hit the track in Saturday night’s Great Clips 300.

“We’re excited to sponsor an event where we can encourage the motoring public to stay focused when they are behind the wheel,” said Lynette Alt Mathis, Bennett vice president of Marketing and Diversity. “Every year our contractors deliver more than 10,000 freight loads across the nation’s highways, and we want to encourage everyone to keep safety first and to minimize distractions while driving.”

Bennett Vice President Danny Lowry’s Proline Racing 670ci powered twin turbo Mustang will also be on hand for attendees to view. A five-year veteran of the drag racing circuit, Lowry competes in 8 to 10 races a year in the NHRA series.

“I enjoy competition,” says the former high-school athlete and U.S. Marine. “But now that I’m older and no longer an athlete, the car is the athlete.”

The simulators will be on display in partnership with Bennett’s recruitment team. During the three-day event, Bennett’s recruiters will be on-site with door prizes and applications for qualified contractors who have a valid commercial drivers license.
