In August, JMJ Senior Consultant, Rick Cates, marked his half century as a member of the National Truck Driving Championship’s (NTDC’s) organizing committee. Rick’s passion for the tournament was ignited when he attended his first event in 1972 and has remained undiminished over the subsequent five decades. In recognition of his milestone, and to honor his contributions over the years, Rick’s colleagues on the committee have given him the title of ‘Senator’.

“Rick is committed to this event … He has a passion for safety and a passion for the truck driving championship program. And he makes sure everybody knows it.”

Jacob Pierce, Executive Director NTDC
