Don’t miss this fleet event and alt fuel vehicle ride and drive in Austin on June 22, 2017

Lone Star Clean Fuels Alliance and Travis County, Texas in conjunction with the 100Best Fleets present A Day at the Track at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin.

This fleet meet is designed by and for fleet professionals and will allow for formal presentations and informal networking opportunities throughout the day. There is no part of the day’s agenda that doesn’t directly relate to day-to-day realities of the workplace. Attendees will share their current common challenges and most importantly, hear solutions from peers in similar situations. Leaders who attend are sure to walk away with plenty of fresh new ideas and renewed enthusiasm for how best to run their fleet operations.

Tom Johnson from the 100 Best Fleets will lead the morning program which brings together winners of the 100 Best Fleets in Texas to discuss their best practices. Our emerging technologies panel covers everything from electric vehicle fuel management to fuel efficiency calibration from the folks at Derive Systems. We’ll hear about Austin’s Smart Cities fleet plan and City Public Service’s in-house inspections.

We will also have an up-to-date report on how the State of Texas is handling the VW Settlement funds.

This event will be on June 22, 2017 at the Circuit of The Americas — the premier destination for world-class motorsports and entertainment in the United States. Set on 1,500 acres in the rolling hills just outside downtown Austin, Circuit of The Americas has hosted the biggest names in racing, action sports and music since 2012. At its heart is a 3.41-mile racetrack that was designed to challenge the world’s most exacting competitors while providing a thrilling spectacle for audiences. Mercedes-Benz Racing is scheduled to be using the track while we’re there.

Our exhibitors in the Velocity Lounge include the Propane Council of Texas, Smart Charge America, Roush CleanTech, Suburban Propane and the Lone Star Clean Fuels Alliance, a Clean Cities Coalition serving Central Texas. We still have spots available, if this is the first you’ve heard of this.

Our luncheon will be catered by Ryan Sanders Sports Services and held in the Velocity Lounge. Our Gold Lunch Sponsor/Speaker will be Andy Greenberg from ProTec Fuel, a company dedicated to providing unique turnkey ethanol solutions to distributors, retailers and fleets nationwide.

Greg Dugan from Ford Motor Company Fleet is our silver lunch sponsor and also a speaker. Ford has just introduced the first-ever police pursuit-rated hybrid vehicle…providing a Greener Shade of Blue. AND HE’S BRINGING IT ALONG FOR US TO SEE AT THIS EVENT ON THE 22ND!

Lunch is followed by 2017 Texas Legislative Session updates and a panel of experts discussing fuels, infrastructure and alternative fuel vehicles including Electric, LPG, CNG, Renewable Natural Gas, E-85 and Biodiesel.

Following the classroom portion of the program, participants will adjourn to Parking Lot A to view and try out alternative vehicles provided by multiple vendors.

General Motors Fleet, will provide a Malibu Hybrid, Volt and Bolt. To help increase the efficiency of your fleet … they offer an extensive selection of alternative propulsion options, like E85 capability, diesels, CNG/LPG, hybrids, electric vehicles and everything in between to potentially save you money with the environment in mind.
