TMC SuperTech 2016

Arkansas Trucking Association sent two technicians to compete in Raleigh, N.C. at the American Trucking Associations’ Technology and Maintenance Council’s 2016 SuperTech competitions for truck and trailer technicians around the country.

Technicians from all 50 states gathered at the Raleigh Convention Center to show off their tech skills. This year’s SuperTech included a trailer tech competition for the first time and a FutureTech competition challenged future technicians from diesel tech school programs.

FedEx Freight's Eric Vos, of Boise, Idaho, claimed the Grand Champion title for the second year in a row.

Truck Centers of Arkansas’s Aaron Martin from Springdale, Ark. placed 16th overall after competing in the truck division.

This was Martin’s third time to compete at the national competition. He has worked at Truck Centers of Arkansas for over 5 years.

Arkansas’ trailer technician Richard Holt from Ola, Ark., earned the highest score on the ASE written test and placed first at the trailer alignment station. Holt has worked for Tyson Foods for 5 years.

"For 12 years, TMCSuperTech has provided an opportunity to recognize the outstanding work of our industry's technicians and this year was no different," said ATA President and CEO Chris Spear.
