David Stanley and Jack Heffern represented Whitewood Transport in the Montana Truck Driving Championships on June 11, 2011, at the Holiday Inn Grand Montana in Billings, MT. They competed with more than 35 professional truck drivers who came to Billings from across the state to compete for the title of the state’s best truck driver. Jack placed third in the tank division. David placed first in the Flatbed division. This was an outstanding accomplishment to have both contestants place in this competition.
Stanley received the top score in all three elements of the competition in his division: Written test, driving skills course and a pre-trip inspection where the drivers must identify planted safety defects on a tractor-trailer. The first place win afforded him the opportunity to compete at the American Trucking Associations National Driver o f the Year competition in Orlando, FL, August 10-13, 2011. Although David did not place in Orlando, Whitewood was proud to have our first entrant in the National Truck Driving Championships.
We commend both drivers for a job well done and sincerely appreciate their professionalism and commitment to the trucking industry. We look forward to seeing them both compete for a State and National title in 2012.
