Annual Road Warrior Contest Honours Drivers


Pilot Flying J has opened nominations for its fourth annual Road Warrior contest that honours professional drivers who go the extra mile to ensure that products and goods are delivered safely, securely and on time to keep the country moving efficiently.

From now through Dec. 31, 2017, the Road Warrior program will recognize the “heroes on the road” by encouraging online story submissions, spotlighting professional drivers’ hard work, perseverance and passion for the trucking industry for a chance to win big cash prizes.

These hardworking nominees have the chance to win a Grand Prize of $10,000, $5,000 for second place or $2,500 for third place. Plus, if you submit one of the winning three nominations, you’ll receive $500 for your contribution.

“The Road Warrior program is designed to raise awareness for the tireless and critical work of professional drivers and thank them for a job well done,” Ken Parent, president of Pilot Flying J, said.

Entering the Road Warrior contest is fast, free and easy. Simply visit RoadWarrior.PilotFlyingJ.com, tell the story of the professional driver in your life who inspires you and upload their photo. Anyone can nominate a Road Warrior, including coworkers, friends and family members, or professional drivers can even nominate themselves.

Last year’s winner was Jacqueline Rocha of Acworth, Ga. The now 23-year-old was honoured for being an advocate for industry, encouraging millennials and females to consider a career in trucking.
