Most of our membership knows about the Spirit Ride. Last year MPTA members and guests raised over $650 for Spirit Ride at the Elko Picnic. The Spirit Ride is designed to draw media attention to Move-Over laws and the needless sacrifices towers and other first responders make in serving the motoring public and transportation industry. After Chip Kauffman of B/A Products first approached American Towman with an idea for a drive across America to promote Move-Over, the vision for what could take place began to grow. To date, over 300 towing companies have signed up to carry the “Spirit” by car carrier as towers continue to volunteer to participate and also lend their ideas to the project.
To participate in the Spirit Ride, please visit the link below and sign up. Looks like Spirit Ride is looking for MPTA members to bring awareness throughout the State of MN.
