Matt Steinmetz Has Resigned from NTPA

Columbus, Ohio—Scoreboard and Live Streaming/Video Coordinator Matt Steinmetz has tendered his resignation from the National Tractor Pullers Association office staff. In addition to his titled duties, Steinmetz has served as Interim Membership Coordinator for over a year and has also been involved in marketing, advertising sales, and social media.

He began his work with the NTPA as an independent contractor on the original Mobile LED Scoreboard crew in 2009.

“Matt has been an invaluable member of NTPA, filling a number of roles during his tenure and always being willing to take on more responsibilities and to learn new skills,” said Gregg Randall, the Association’s Executive Director. “He has built a lot of trust among our competitors and satellite staff. And a lot of goodwill as well.”

Steinmetz has accepted the position of Field Sales Representative for Hot Shot’s Secret, an NTPA National Circuit Sponsor based in Mount Gilead, Ohio. As such, he will travel to display locations across the country, many of them NTPA events, and promote Hot Shot’s Secret fuel and lubrication additives to fans and participants.

“While we are saddened to see Matt depart, it helps to know that we’ll still see him at many of our prestigious national events,” Randall concluded.
