E.W. Wylie is a subsidiary of Daseke,

Inc., and ownership is granted in the

Hoppe, President of E.W. Wylie. “We

believe in hiring the best drivers in the

industry, and putting them on the path to

company ownership will help us attract

and retain those individuals. It also gives

them a more rewarding career.”

Nascar and Aspen Dental, one of

the largest and fastest-growing

networks of independent dental

care providers in the United

States, announced today a multi-year official

partnership, designating the brand

as the ‘Official Dentist of NASCAR.’ The

announcement coincides with the launch

of Aspen Dental’s ‘Get Started’

awareness building health initiative

with NASCAR and Stewart-

Haas Racing driver Danica

Patrick.

“Aspen Dental’s level of

dedication to drive awareness

and educate fans about the

importance of dental health, especially

as it relates to quality of life for everyday

Americans is inspiring and contagious,”

said Chad Seigler, Vice President, Business

Development, NASCAR. “We welcome

Aspen Dental to our family of Official Partners

and look forward to adding our voice

to amplify the important message behind

Aspen Dental’s Get Started initiative.”

This partnership is important because

nearly 150 million Americans didn’t visit a

dentist in the past year, due to barriers like

access, fears and lack of insurance. For

many of these everyday Americans, poor

oral health has resulted in chronic pain

and inflammation, limiting many from living

a healthy life, and sometimes, impacting

other health conditions. Aspen Dental’s Get

Started initiative will help NASCAR fans

take a simple step to start or restart and

gain control of their oral health by seeing a

dental professional. Aspen Dental-branded

practices offer patients a safe, welcoming

AND NASCAR MAKE IT EASIER FOR

and judgment-free environment to get the

full range of dental care they need along

with the convenience and speed of onsite

denture labs.

“Our goal is to help race fans through

Aspen Dental practices and encourage

them through this official partnership with

NASCAR to Get Started on their road to

better oral health and make

dentistry easier,” said Bob

Fontana, Chairman and CEO of

ADMI. “Together, with the help

of Danica Patrick, we want to

tell race fans that all you need

to do is Get Started to gain

control of their oral health.”

Aspen Dental has been a partner of

Stewart-Haas Racing since 2012 and

aligned with Patrick since 2014. This year,

the brand will serve as the lead sponsor of

Patrick’s No. 10 Ford Fusion for a doubledigit

slate of races. Patrick has shined a

spotlight on oral health across multiple

channels, promoting Aspen Dental’s

Healthy Mouth Movement – a communitygiving

initiative which has delivered more

than $7.5 million in donated dentistry for

veterans since its inception. Additionally,

she has appeared in “A Taste of the

Future” – a hidden-camera video campaign

designed to raise awareness about the

long-term consequences of delaying dental

care.

“I’m really excited about working with

Aspen Dental to support them in breaking

down the barriers to better care, better

smiles and better lives,” said Patrick.

“Starts and restarts are part of our sport.

The same is true for gaining control of your

oral health. Through ‘Get Started’, we will

encourage NASCAR fans to get started –

or restarted – on their own road to better

oral health.”

BLANEY RELIEVED TO NO LONGER

DRAW THE IRE OF JUNIOR NATION

The torch has been passed, and Ryan

Blaney is just fine with that.

After a couple of early season incidents

with fellow driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. drew

the wrath of Junior Nation, Blaney says

it now Jimmie Johnson’s turn to face the

music.

“They’ve got someone else to worry

about now, to hate on,” Blaney said following

a day of on-track testing for NASCAR

XFINITY and Camping World Truck Series

teams at Charlotte Motor Speedway. “Get

the focus off me.”

Johnson, a seven-time Monster Energy

NASCAR Cup Series champion, slammed

into the side of his Hendrick Motorsports

teammate during the Toyota Owners 400

at Richmond International Raceway. Social

media posts from fans after the incident

weren’t kind.

Even Earnhardt Jr. got in on the act,

playfully posting “Ya bro, you made my CD

skip” on Twitter.

Sporting a Bill Elliott T-shirt and Darrell

“Bubba” Wallace ball cap, Blaney said he

and Earnhardt have moved past Blaney’s

verbal outburst at Phoenix and an on-track

incident at Martinsville.

“Honestly we were good,” Blaney said.

“Dale, Amy (Earnhardt) and I were good;

we had the deal happen at Phoenix and I

left her flowers at their bus. The Martinsville

deal happened, Dale and I talked a

few days after that and we were good. We

actually talked at Texas; we were neighbors

at Texas in the bus lot. We talked for a bit

there and were good there.”

Good enough that Blaney, driver of the

iconic No. 21 Ford fielded by Wood Brothers

Racing, hitched a ride home with the

Earnhardts following Sunday’s Richmond

race.

“That was actually the first time I’ve been

back to his house,” Blaney said. “He gave

me a ride home; I flew home with him from

Richmond, which was really nice of them.

Then I went to his house and … probably

didn’t see my bed until about 4:30 that

morning. So that was an early Monday

debrief.

“But it was good, we had a good time

and it was cool to get back over there with

them. They’re great people.”

TRUCKINGNEWS

TRUMPS SAYS HE’S WILLING TO

INCREASE THE GAS TAX

President Donald Trump said he will

explore the possibility of higher gasoline

and diesel fuel taxes, suggesting

an increase could pay for his ambitious

infrastructure plan.

“It’s something that I would certainly

consider,” Trump told Bloomberg News in an

interview.

The president indicated that the additional

money would be directed toward highway

construction

and repair.

That’s been a

problem area

because fuel

taxes have been

unchanged

since 1993 and

created financial challenges for preserving

the Highway Trust Fund.

The federal government currently finances

its trust fund with an 18.4 cents per gallon tax

on gasoline and a 24.4 cents per gallon tax

on diesel fuel, neither of which are adjusted

for inflation so the revenues raised has effectively

fallen over time.

To keep a positive balance in the trust

fund, lawmakers have injected an additional

$143 billion into it since 2008, according to a

report last year by the Congressional Budget

Office. Highway-related tax revenue raised

just $37.4 billion in fiscal 2015, meaning that

maintenance has been deferred as potholes

and traffic jams have worsened.

It’s a rare tax increase that enjoys support

from the businesses most likely to bear the

higher costs.

The U.S. trucking industry — which shoulders

roughly half the cost of the fuel taxes —

would welcome an increase if it’s dedicated

to fixing infrastructure. The industry benefits

because better roads reduce travel times,

curb the frequency of vehicle repairs and

improve roadway safety.

“The cost of doing nothing is more

expensive than a higher fuel tax,” said Chris

Spears, president of the American Trucking

Association.

The ATA, the Truckload Carriers Association

and the Owner-Operator Independent

Drivers Association all support higher gas

and diesel taxes, OOIDA as long as all funds

collected go to only to highways.

“As an industry that pays half of the

tab that funds the Highway Trust Fund we

welcome a discussion around tax reform and

how best to generate the additional revenue

we need to improve our roads and bridges

so we can continue to safely and efficiently

move 70 percent of the nation’s freight,” said

Sean McNally, ATA’s vice president of public

affairs and press secretary.

WOMEN IN TRUCKING ASSOCIATION ANNOUNCES

ITS MAY MEMBER OF THE MONTH

26 // TJS 2017

Women In Trucking Association (WIT)

announces Paige Eber as its May Member

of the Month. Paige was recently promoted

to District Service Manager for Rush Truck

Centers, covering its dealership locations in

South Georgia.

Paige joined Rush Truck Centers in June

2015 as part of Rush Enterprises’ New Graduate

program, following her graduation from

Clemson University. Later that year, Paige

joined the company’s Leadership Development

Program, an 18-month management

training program. In that program, she spent

six months each in service, sales/administration,

and in parts. This program is a comprehensive

rotation, which provides training


TRUCKINGNEWS

on the full scope of managing a dealership,

including the inner workings of each department,

and how all departments are connected

and dependent upon each other.

Paige completed her first six months with

Rush Enterprises working at Rush Truck

Center-Charlotte and then transferred to

the Service department in the company’s

Richmond, Virginia location, where she immediately

took charge in every capacity she was

able to assist, including stepping in as interim

Service Manager role for three months. With

the guidance of the Director of Service and

the Regional Service Manager, even with

Paige’s brief tenure at both Rush Enterprises

and in the industry, she performed remarkably

well.

“We are proud of Paige and her accomplishments

and for embodying our company

values of excellence, fairness, productivity,

and positive attitude. We are looking forward

to her continued bright future,” said Rich

Ryan, Senior Vice President of Navistar Dealerships

at Rush Enterprises.

Victor Cummings, Rush Enterprises’

Vice President of Service Operations, said,

“Paige’s efforts, dedication and leadership

have helped to build more cohesive relationships

between each department she worked,

even though she was the one in training.

Every manager that has worked with her has

been complimentary of her work ethic, ability,

and overall positive influence on her peers

and our customers. Having had the pleasure

to work with Paige for almost two years, I can

say with confidence that she is an exceptional

young professional and will no doubt

go far in her career. I am happy for Paige and

very proud of her.”
