One lucky company driver and one top owner-operator will each become $25,000 richer if they win driver of the year contests.
The Truckload Carriers Association and Truckers News seek the Company Driver of the Year while Overdrive partners with TCA to locate the Owner-Operator of the Year.
Both annual contests are sponsored by Love’s Travel Stops and Cummins Inc.
Three finalists for each contest will be announced in January. The winners will be recognized at TCA’s 2020 Annual Convention, March 1-3 at the Gaylord Palms in Kissimmee, Florida.
The top company driver and owner-operator each win $25,000 and the runners up in both contests get $2,500.
Ester Nemeth, who drives for Bison Transport, was 2018’s Company Driver of the Year and Danny Jewell, who drives for Warren Transport, was the top owner-operator.
