Maggie Stone, an Iowa hog hauler, was named the winner of Overdrive’s Most Beautiful contest today at the Great American Trucking Show in Dallas.

Celebrity judges picked Stone Friday after meeting with her and finalists Tina Comer and Libby Clayton.

The finalists won trips to Dallas and met with show attendees at the Overdrive booth. Stone will be featured in an Overdrive cover story this year.

Overdrive launched the contest last spring to highlight professional women drivers who demonstrate inner and outer beauty and who represent the industry well. Read more about the contest and the finalists.

Stone, who has been in trucking 21 years, owns Missfit Trucking and drives a 1999 Peterbilt 379. She hauls hogs for AgFeed Industries and Dan O’Brien Trucking. She also hauls cattle.

Stone’s father, uncles and grandfather drove trucks, but she’s the first woman in her family to do so.

“Sometimes I’m my own worst enemy,” Stone says. “I’m in a man’s world, and I don’t like to ask for help, which can be difficult when you’re moving 300-pound hogs.”

After two years in the Army in the late ’80s, Stone started driving professionally in 1992. She dedicates her time, money and her truck to helping needy trucking families every Christmas, and she’s volunteered with Trucker Charity Inc., a group that helps truckers in need year round. When Arrow Trucking Co. filed for bankruptcy in 2010, Stone and other volunteers worked hard to bring truckers home safely who were still on the road.

“Beauty, to me, is not just outward,” Stone says. “Somebody can be extremely ugly on the outside but beautiful on the inside.”
