Ace towing was proud to participate in Montclaire Elementary’s Transportation Day for the entire Kindergarten.  Almost 100 students were thrilled to see all types of transportation including a helicopter flyover, a police car, a fire truck, a boat, a motorcycle and of course, two Ace Towing Trucks!  The children seemed to enjoy these the most because they got to climb in and honk the horns.

"A Day at the Races"
By Tom Gillespie


Michael Melandro, president of Ace Towing and Recovery Inc. in Charlotte, North Carolina, works the Charlotte Motor Speedway and the Texas Motor Speedway in Ft. Worth. He drives car carriers for AATAC Inc. also out of Charlotte, which handles these races.

As a recovery crew member for the past six years, there have been many exciting moments on the track, but one event stands out above the rest: the second lap multi-car crash at the 1997 Texas 500 race at the Texas Motor Speedway. "‘My position was at the end of pit road right before turn one, " Mike says. "The wreck happened in turn one and two. I couldn’t see the actual wreck, I just heard someone say the word 'sideways' and saw smoke. We jumped into the truck while the coordinator in the tower overlooking the track started calling tow trucks out one-by-one in rapid succession. He said 'they has a mess out there.' We came around the corner and it was unbelievable. Cars were scattered everywhere.

"Ten cars were involved in the crash. The ambulances were out first – you don’t get in their way – so we had a few moments to survey what was happening before the tower began telling us what cars to go after."

"Like in a movie – everything seemed to be happening in slow motion. Smoke and flames were pouring from two cars as people worked frantically to move them around. Additional wreckers were coming by to grab the other cars. It’s amazing thing to see it happen and to be in the middle of it while it’s happening."

"We were running like maniacs to get them all loaded up. The goal was to get the cars picked up before the ambulances were gone so we wouldn’t hold up the race. We started moving as soon as the driver was out of the car. We had to be quick. Driving out, hooking up and going takes about 60 to 90 seconds."

"It goes from doing nothing at your position to doing everything at once. But its a very choreographed piece. Everyone’s in place and everyone’s on time. You don’t really think about it when you’re out there but with the cars coming by at over 100 mph it can be very dangerous. But if everyone does their job like they’re supposed to everything will work fine."

"After you do your job and go back to your position, you think back and say "Wow!  That was Amazing!' "
