We don't usually give our job descriptions a theme song, but this one has Willie Nelson written all over it. So, yeah, it gets a song. As a CDL Event Specialist, you'll be On the Road Again-and again. About 20% of your job will be spent driving a tractor-trailer. The other 80% will be spent at the track working races or events. We're not just looking for the person who thinks backing up a trailer is fun. We want the kind soul who doesn't hesitate to jump in and help a stranger back up their trailer while everyone else in traffic is just getting mad. If you're that person, then you belong at Jackson. Apply if you want to go on the road with us!
