Champs at Super Bowl of Safety
Judges at the National Truck Driving Championships (NTDC) in Houston awarded USF Holland city driver Herschel Evans (pictured below on left) with the title National Champion in the 5-Axle class. The 2008 USF NTDC team is shown on the right.
Held each August by the American Trucking Associations, nearly 400 drivers from across the U.S. compete in eight vehicle classes, accumulating points through a driving skills test, pre-trip inspection test, written examination and personal interview.
To compete, drivers must be accident-free for the 12 months leading up to the event and place first in their state-level driving championships.
Evans is a 14-year veteran with USF Holland, working out of Atlanta, Georgia. In addition to his 2008 title, Evans was named Rookie of the Year and took first place in the 5-Axle class in the 2006 Georgia driving competition.
Driver safety is one reason USF Holland shipments arrive 99.8 percent damage free. To find out more about the national driving championships, go to YRC Worldwide.
