New on RailwayAge.com: “I Brake For Trains,” sponsored by PTMW Inc.

Written by  William C. Vantuono, Editor-in-Chief

CSX Transportation has partnered with Furniture Row Racing and the No. 78 Chevrolet Impala driven by Regan Smith in NASCAR’s top-tier Sprint Cup Series as an associate sponsor for the first half of the 2012 season. The six-race sponsorship program is built around CSX’s “Play it Safe” highway/railroad grade crossing and pedestrian safety campaign to urge pedestrians and motorists to exercise caution around railroad tracks.

Thanks to the sponsorship of PTMW, Inc., visitors to the Railway Age website can keep pace with Regan Smith and his exploits both on and off the racetrack and with the railroad’s innovative Play It Safe program via a special microsite, “I Brake For Trains.” The microsite contains news and informational stories, photos, and video clips, “and is a great way to stay on top of the action,” says Railway Age Editor-in-Chief William C. Vantuono. “We and PTMW are pleased and excited to be supporting this valuable partnership between CSX and one of NASCAR’s up-and-coming Sprint Cup teams. Regan Smith has become a very effective and enthusiastic rail industry spokesperson for public safety.”

The “I Brake For Trains.” microsite is listed on the Railway Age home page as "Play It Safe/PTMW" on the far right-hand-side of the channels navigation bar, which is near the top of the page.
