Registration is now open for ACcess, the MACS 40th anniversary Training Event and Trade Show to be held February 19-22, 2020 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville, TN.

Attendees will gain ACcess to mobile A/C and engine cooling service and repair information needed to make accurate diagnoses and reliable repairs, while attending training sessions with the experts in the field for in-depth A/C training for passenger car and light truck, HD truck and off-road vehicles. They will also enjoy ACcess to network with other mobile A/C professionals. In addition to 35 hours of blockbuster training classes with 36 of the industry’s top trainers, the MACS 2020 Training Event includes a trade show featuring the designers  and manufactures of A/C systems, components, tools and equipment. A golf tournament at Gaylord Springs and multiple networking opportunities in entertaining social settings like Nashville’s Wildhorse Saloon round out the event.

NASCAR driver David Starr will be the Keynote Speaker at the 2020 Training Event Keynote luncheon sponsored by MAHLE Service Solutions. Competitive, determined and passionate with over 20 years of racing experience under his belt, David Starr has proven himself as one of the top racers in the United States.

Starting out at his local Houston dirt tracks, David climbed the ladder gaining championships and victories under his belt. He learned the skills and mechanics behind racing on dirt and pavement, vaulted to success, and entered the then named NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series in 1998. Throughout a decade of racing, David has racked up wins in the Truck Series and competed for championships.

In 2014, David moved to the NASCAR Xfinity Series where he drove the #66 Toyota for Carl Long, as well as others such as AJ Foyt and NFL player Randy Moss. David currently competes full-time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, driving the No. 52 Chevrolet Camaro for Jimmy Means Racing and part-time in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, driving the No. 51 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 for Rick Ware Racing and the No. 97 Toyota Camry for Obaika Racing.

“David has been involved in racing since he was 14-years old and knows the business of racing inside and out. After spending time with him, we are convinced our attendees will be fascinated by a life-long driver’s perspective on the sport,” remarked Elvis L. Hoffpauir, MACS president and chief operating officer.
