Thanks to Joshua Steinmetz for his active role in facilitating a relationship between our companies.”

Digital Marketing Manager for Hot Shot’s Secret, Joshua Steinmetz, is a familiar face to many within the NTPA, as he spent the past decade as NTPA’s digital communications director, overseeing the website, social media and scoreboards. “Having a thorough understanding of the NTPA and close personal relationships with their top tier drivers allows me to assist Hot Shot’s Secret in taking the best possible advantage of this sponsorship.” stated Steinmetz. “In addition to participating in this highly competitive sport, most of these drivers are professionals in the agriculture market, the semi-truck industry and in the agricultural supply business. We look forward to developing a strong and lasting partnership with the association and their competitors.”
