Jack B. Parson Companies Takes Top Spot at Roadeo
Ogden - JACK B. PARSON COMPANIES (JBP) clenched the top spot for the eighth time at the annual northern Utah Ready Mix Truck Roadeo. The Roadeo is sponsored annually by the ASSOCIATED GENERAL CONTRACTORS OF UTAH. Daren Rawson of JBP’s Ogden plant achieved the highest score during the competition and was presented a cash prize and plaque recognizing him as the winner.
JBP selected three drivers to participate in the competition based on their safety record, professionalism and years of service. Rawson has been a JBP employee for 21 years and has an excellent safety record. Two other JBP drivers, both with decades of safe driving experience, participated in the event.
Three different tests were administered during the Roadeo, including a written test, a pre-trip inspection conducted by the Utah Highway Patrol, and a driving test that measured the driver’s skill in maneuvering, backing, turning and stopping the mixer. Concrete placement and chute handling skills were also tested during the event.
“Congratulations to this year’s winners and participants,” says Bob Rowberry, JBP president. “Our employees continually demonstrate their determination to strive for excellence in their driving skills and safety.”
Rawson will represent JBP at the National Ready Mix Concrete Association Roadeo held Sept. 25 in San Diego, Calif.
