Shaw Driver Augie Tamayo Inducted into Driver Hall of Fame

Dalton, GA, July 1, 2021-Shaw Industries has announced the induction of Agustin “Augie” Tamayo, a veteran truck driver for the company, into the National Private Truck Council/Omnitracs Driver Hall of Fame earlier this month. Shaw will be holding a private award ceremony for Tamayo in the coming weeks to celebrate this milestone. 

The National Private Truck Council (NPTC) is the national trade association dedicated exclusively to representing private motor carrier fleets. In order for a driver to qualify for the NPTC/Omnitracs Driver Hall of Fame, he or she must have a minimum of 20 years, three million miles or 50,000 hours of consecutive driving without a preventable accident. Since the NPTC/Omnitracs Driver Hall of Fame’s inception in 1987, only 136 drivers have been inducted into this distinguished group.

Tamayo has driven over 5.3 million miles in his career, with 4.3 million of those miles achieved during his career at Shaw Industries. Throughout Tamayo’s 36-year career with the company, he has never had a chargeable accident or moving violation.
