Thorold,Ontario-An unfortunate scheduling conflict for Ball Hockey International now has the Ontario Truck Driving School as the new presenter of the first Autograph Night of the new season benefiting “KIDS RACE” and the Canadian National Autism Foundation-Saturday June 20th.

Race Fans and Teams alike can learn about upcoming training for all Commercial Driving Licenses, Heavy Machinery Operation, and Specialized Equipment and of course the CNAF!”

The on track action will be bolstered by a TUSA Modified Lite Tour Event for the Rev’s Full Throttle Powersports Modified Lite Division. The Lucas Oil Weekly Racing Series Event will also feature the Pinty’s 358 Modifieds, Rick’s Delivery Sportsman, Hoosier Stocks and the Van Raine Construction 4 Cylinders. A break in all the racing will see drivers from all divisions invade the front-stretch for the first Autograph Session of 2015.

Founded in 1978, Ontario Truck Driving School’s training is designed to help students succeed. Industry leading programs are delivered by qualified over the road and in the field instructors who have experienced the challenges you may encounter as a new commercial driver or heavy equipment operator. Throughout the years, thousands of men and women have successfully obtained employment with the help of our career-oriented training.
