TCA Announces Driver of the Year Contest Finalists
7/14/2006

Diverse Group Represents Over 85 Million Total 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 drivers throughout the United States and Canada.

The thirty 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 TCA carrier member drivers who have logged over a million miles while adhering to the strictest safety standards. This exceptional group of finalists represents sixteen states and Canada.

The outstanding drivers listed below will now complete the second part of the application (due December 15, 2006) 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 2007 Annual Convention at the Bellagio Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada on March 11-14. Congratulations and best wishes to all the finalists and their companies:
