And, even loved ones are showing their appreciation as they share their thoughts with Truckers News’ i Luv My Trucker.

- Jim Sutton from Omaha, Nebraska
- Kenneth Sutton, Jr. from Atlanta

A statement from the company said the Driver of the Year awards are given each year to a select group of individuals who exemplify outstanding performance in safety, dependability, communication or community involvement.
