Holland salutes their state champions

To qualify for the National Truck Driving Championships, drivers must place first in their respective classes at the state competition.

The state and national competitions include driving skills and maneuvering tests, a pre-trip inspection, and a written examination covering vehicle operation and federal safety regulations.

To participate in the state competitions, drivers must be accident-free for one year.

This year, three Holland drivers earned division titles to advance to the national competition. Our state champions are: Herschel Evans/GA 5-axle (city driver in Atlanta); Mike Tobolic/MI 5-axle (city driver in Grand Rapids); and David White/OH tanker (linehaul driver in Akron).

This is a special time for us to celebrate the professionalism of Holland drivers. Local, state and national driving contests are more than a test of how well a driver can operate a vehicle--they are a safety program that challenges drivers to sharpen their driving skills. Congratulations to all our drivers who participated in this year's competitions.
