Public voting opened last week for the top military rookie truck driver in the “Transition Trucking: Driving for Excellence” recognition program that will give a Kenworth T680 with a 76-inch sleeper to the winner.

Three finalists for the award and truck were announced at the Great American Trucking Show in August:

  • Russell Hardy, of Trimac Transportation, who served with the U.S. Navy and U.S. Army
  • Kevin Scott, of TMC Transportation, who served with the U.S. Army
  • Troy Davidson, Werner Enterprises, who served with the U.S. Navy

Through Nov. 11, the public can watch videos of the three finalists and vote up to 25 times per day at this link. The contest is a joint effort of the U.S Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes Program, Kenworth and Fastport.

The winner will be announced in December at the Pentagon.
