Diesel News has found plenty of news while taking a tour of the trucking Twitterverse. There’s the Truck Driver of the Year, new video from Rod Hannifey and a new initiative to bring a diversity of young people in trucking.
Boral driver Barry Fitzgerald, gets the guernsey, or rather the blazer, as the ATA Truck Driver of the the Year.
Congratulations Barry Fitzgerald, 2018 National Professional Driver of the Year.
