Daryl Bear is a mechanical engineer with 18 years of experience in motorsports, automotive testing, research and development including work in IndyCar, NASCAR, and with OEM’s such as Ford and Honda. Upon realizing race car engineering could help optimize fuel economy on heavy-duty trucks, Daryl developed a proprietary improved test method for quantifying fuel savings in trucking. Daryl introduced this test method to Mesilla Valley Transportation in 2012, which has since saved the trucking company over $28M in fuel. Daryl and MVT partnered to create MVT Solutions (MVTS) in 2016 where Daryl is the Lead Engineer and COO. MVTS provides its fuel economy test methods to trucking fleets and technology suppliers and has conducted more than 300 tests since 2012.
