His first truck was a 1980 R model Mack, marking the beginning of a successful career that would eventually lead to co-owning a company. In 1989, Schnautz and his brother Danny joined Clark Freight Lines Inc. in Pasadena, Texas.They purchased the company from the retiring owner in 2021.Today the company has a fleet of over 155 trucks and numerous trailers. David Schnautz is currently the Vice President of Clark Freight Lines Inc.

Schnautz joined the ATHS in 1991. He served as chapter president. and Texas/Oklahoma regional vice president, and eventually to a position on the executive board. He has served on the executive board for over four years..

“It (ATHS) is dear to me because of the history of the industry. My grandpa, dad, and three uncles were all involved in the industry and drove trucks.I was introduced to a noisy truck when I was just a baby. My roots run deep in trucking and trucks,” he said.
