Holland salutes their state champions
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.
