Overdrive’s Most Beautiful finalist: Libby Clayton

Meet Libby Clayton, finalist for Overdrive’s Most Beautiful Contest, who will be appearing at the Great American Trucking Show along with finalists Tina Comer and Maggie Stone.

Captured on her dashcam, the incident occurred during one of Clayton’s typical night hauls on “I-35W southbound in Fort Worth,” she says, the night of Wednesday, December 4. “I could see in my mirror this car was one of the ones that just couldn’t stand to wait while” a truck passed Clayton in the left lane.

Stay safe out there this weekend.

    Truck passing screwed up too…changed lanes too close to truck behind, even if they felt pressure from the tail gating 4 wheeler. A split second after turning on signal he started to move over, instead of check, signal then check again B4 moving…and yeah, the 4 wheeler was an impatient idiot.
