Bill Collins Wins 2015 SCCA Driver Of The Year Award
Submitted by Bill on
The Land of Lakes region of the Sports Car Club of America presented Bill Collins, the owner and founder of Interstate Truck Driving School with the "Road Racing Driver of the Year" Award for 2015.
Bill's passion for driving runs deep. He has raced cars for over 45 years and driven the big rigs for over 40. As the owner of the school, Bill has the opportunity to share his passion for driving with new drivers that can take advantage of the financial benefits of the trucking industry.
In route to his "Driver of the Year" Award, Bill had to go back to school this past spring. It had been several years since he had driven in the road racing series. Even though he had recent experience with oval track racing, the SCCA required him to go back through the same process as a rookie driver.
"I really welcomed the opportunity to go back to school" Bill said after the three day course at BIR Performance Driving School in May. Bill went on to comment "Gary Curtis runs a great program and I used the experience not only to get up to speed in road racing again, but also to learn what I could to improve what we offer at Interstate". Bill is dedicated to always improving the training at Interstate Truck Driving School so he is always looking for new ideas and methods.
