TCA Announces Driver of the Year Contest Finalists
11/8/2004

Top Drivers Account for Almost 100 Million Accident Free Miles

Alexandria, Virginia:

The Truckload Carriers Association, along with contest co-sponsors, Truckers News and Overdrive Magazine, is pleased to announce the top finalists for the Independent Contractor of the Year and Company Equipment Driver of the Year contests. The competition for these contests becomes more intense each year as we try to honor the best of the best throughout the United States and Canada.

The thirty-two finalists were chosen on the basis of miles driven without accidents as well as a review of their driving records, moving, and hours of service violations. The contest is open to all members of the trucking industry and mileage and driving records are verified to ensure only the best of the best are selected. As a whole, this exceptional group has logged a total of over 98.5 million safe miles and 982 accident-free years on the road.

The outstanding drivers listed below will now complete the second part of the application (due December 17, 2004) and official judges will choose the top five winners in each contest. The top three prizewinners for both contests will be announced at the TCA 2005 Annual Convention at the Bellagio Resort and Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada on March 6-9, 2005.

Congratulations and best wishes to all the finalists and their companies:
