FedEx to send 78 drivers to championships
A record 78 drivers from 38 states representing the FedEx companies will compete in the National Truck Driving Championships Aug. 22-25 in Minneapolis.
Each FedEx driver earned the right to compete in the championships, sponsored by the American Trucking Associations, by capturing first-place honors at the state level.
Collectively, the FedEx state champions have nearly 1,500 years of professional driving experience and have safely driven more than 92 million miles, enough to circle the globe almost 3,700 times.
The FedEx drivers will compete against nearly 400 others for national titles in eight different classes of vehicles and for the National Grand Champion title. The drivers accumulate points by demonstrating their driving skills and industry knowledge.
