Stephanie Klang of Fidelity, Missouri, has been named winner of the 2017 Overdrive’s Most Beautiful contest. She will be presented at The Great American Trucking Show in Dallas, Aug. 24-26.
“I am humble, grateful and hope to be a worthy representative for all women who drive,” says Klang of being named the 2017 Overdrive’s Most Beautiful winner.
Klang and Fred, her 17-year-old cat, travel the country for CFI. The America’s Road Team Captain, who served a 2013-2014 term, has been driving for 37 years. Her early days were spent driving team, but she’s been solo for nearly 30 years and 3 million miles with CFI.
Klang had a hardscrabble life growing up and was determined to find a career through which she could become financially secure. “Once you can take care of yourself financially, that’s the true definition of independence for women. It’s my whole world and I make the most of it,” she says.
