2015 IMTA Technician State Championship

In our efforts to support the continuing education of todays mechanics, for the second consecutive year Star Leasing Company chaired the Heavy Duty Brake station for the Indiana Motor Truck Association technician challenge. This year Indiana lead the nation with 53 of the brightest and talented technicians entered into the challenge. The technicians were challenged by a series of jobs they performed or described within the area of tractor trailer brakes, and a test was designed by Chris Cotton, our Director of Maintenance. The correct answers where based on the recommended practices of the TMC (Technology & Maintenance Council). The skills test having a possible score of 100, proved challenging but fair as the scores varied greatly with the highest being 95% and accomplished by two of the entrants.

This year we had an unexpected surprise as one of the volunteer judges at our station was Kevin Tomlinson, the newly elected General Chairman of the TMC. We were honored to have him as one of the hands on judges at the brake station, and of course his experience and industry insight added to the experience for all. Also in our team was Bobby Hehe of Walmart in Gas City and Chris Baker with TA Truck Service, they were great with the technicians and as always keep everyone engaged throughout the day.

Kevin Tomlinson

We are glad to support the TMC and the IMTA in the brake skills challenge as we know that brake issues are one of the highest out of service issues for our industry. We are dedicated to the continued education and training not only of our mechanics, foreman and managers, but everyone in the trade. We are also certainly dedicated to our customers to provide them with safe and cost effective commercial trailing equipment.

We would also like to thank our friends at Palmer Kenworth for their support by supplying tractors for the event.
