Michael Bixler

Michael Bixler lives in Lykens, Pennsylvania, following a childhood riding with his father, well-known owner-operator Steve Bixler, during summer vacations. After high school graduation in 2009, he earned a secondary degree in auto collision repair before getting his CDL in 2014. He drove in Steve Bixler's company, piloting the owner-op's "Lady in Red" 1989 Freightliner cabover until 2017. The OTR trucking "bug" never fully bit him, however, and today he's employed in a freight yard.
