“Bob has been a long-time supporter of DriverCheck, and has made workplace fitness for duty one of his top priorities for the organizations he has represented,” Connor Page, Business Development Manager at DriverCheck explains.
“Part of the allure of this sponsorship was Bob’s charity work and involvement with MADD”, says Mr. Page. “Given MADD’s stance on impaired driving, it’s a perfect match, as DriverCheck shares their vision.”
Mr. Schultheiss explains, “I love racing. It was our goal to have a car in the 2017 season, so I reached out last year to DriverCheck and presented our vision. Car racing is a safety sensitive role, which is why I wanted to partner with DriverCheck and MADD. I take fitness for duty extremely seriously, and know these two organizations do as well. I know this will create exposure to the audience they work with daily.”
“When Bob came forward with this idea, his passion for racing was contagious, so it was an easy decision to support him and his team,” continues Mr. Page. “DriverCheck provides alcohol and drug testing in a variety of industries – and car racing is extremely safety sensitive. We know how important this is to Bob and his team, which is why we wanted to support him.

MEE stands for Making Eligibility Easy which was designed to help the transportation industry in qualifying drivers and getting them on the road efficiently, safely and cost effectively by providing all the required documents and services through a single website.
“We are ecstatic to be a sponsor of Bob and the RJS Motor Sports race team,” Charlie Charalambous, Director of Client Services says. “This is a cool way to connect with our audience. This is a unique marketing exposure opportunity for MEE, while supporting a valuable association like MADD.”
