Strike's DOT Group & Cook Team visit The Texas Challenge


Strike's Department of Transportation (DOT) group was invited back to the Texas Challenge in Corpus Christi on July 9, 2018. The Texas Challenge is a competition put on by the Texas Department of Public Safety's (DPS) Commercial Vehicle Enforcement (CVE) Service. The competition identifies the best commercial vehicle inspectors to represent the State of Texas at the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance's 2018 North American Inspectors Championship (NAIC) to be held in conjunction with the American Trucking Association's 2018 National Truck Driving Championship this August in Columbus, OH.  This is the second year in a row that Strike's DOT Group has been invited to participate.

The mission of the Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Service (CVE) is to reduce commercial motor vehicle accidents, to protect state highways from unnecessary damage, to ensure proper vehicle registration and protect the safety of the general public.  Attending the Texas Challenge allows Strike and other partners in safety the opportunity to see first-hand what occurs during various roadside inspections. The Texas Challenge improves the quality of Strike's inspections along with the opportunity to network and support the mission of the CVE.

"Through Strike's generosity of taking a sponsorship role in this year's event, our team walked away with an in-depth knowledge of the challenges that our CVE officers face during roadside inspections, along with multiple connections that we are able to utilize to improve today's business model," said Tony Caldwell, Senior DOT Compliance Specialist.

The Strike Cook Team joined the challenge this year serving fajitas. The Cook Team showcased Strike's hospitality and served nearly 250 guests in under 2 hours. "We are extremely appreciative of Strike's efforts in helping us achieve a successful event", said Sergeant Brad Gibson, Texas CVE Training Unit. 

The Strike Cook Team and DOT Group showed Strike's hospitality feeding up to 250 guests at the Texas Challenge.
