EDITOR'S NOTE: Bendix announced on May 27 the event has been postponed. The company will share information on rescheduling when available.
Bendix announced it will hold a regional Ride-and-Drive technology demonstration in Lincoln, Ala., as part of the 2022 season of its demo program.
The demonstration is being held June 7-8 at Talladega Superspeedway, 3366 Speedway Boulevard, Lincoln, Ala. Any fleets and dealers in the demo area, as well as drivers and driver trainers, are welcome, the company says.
Participants receive a firsthand view of advanced technologies in action — real-world scenarios drivers encounter daily. Participants gain a better understanding of the performance and value these technologies can deliver, Bendix says.
Following a short safety briefing, attendees will move to the track to log time in the trucks with Bendix demo drivers. Each demo closes with a question-and-answer period facilitated by Bendix’s technology experts.
Bendix will demonstrate the full spectrum of its tractor- and trailer-based safety technologies, including the flagship advanced driver assistance system, Bendix Wingman Fusion; truck, tractor and trailer stability technologies; and the Bendix ADB22X air disc brake. The 2022 program will also showcase the Bendix Intellipark Electronic Parking Brake technology, as well as SafetyDirect by Bendix CVS, updates to the Bendix BlindSpotter side object detection system, and more.
Advanced registration is requested. State rules regarding any applicable COVID-19 precautions and protocols will be followed.
