In late May, the Missouri Truck Driving Championship evaluated drivers on their knowledge of the industry, vehicle inspections, and a driving skills course of six obstacles completed under actual everyday conditions.
This year, L&P entered 3 drivers in the competition: Terry Childers and Felix Herman (OTR drivers in the Sleeper Berth Class) and David Pruitt (5-Axle Class). While Terry and Felix had both competed in the year prior, this was David’s first year of competition.
We’re proud of the results!
David won Rookie of the Year for his outstanding, well-rounded performance as a first-time contestant, as well as 1st Place in the 5-Axle Class, making him the MO State Champion in the 5-Axle Class. David will now advance to the National Truck Driving Championships to be held in Pittsburgh, PA in August.
