A 27-year-old company driver from Sulfur Springs, Texas can rightfully boast that he’s the iron man of one of the country’s largest trucking companies.
Randee Lewis won Prime, Inc.’s second annual Fittest of the Fleet competition. The contest was held at the firm’s company picnic held Labor Day weekend in Springfield, Mo., where Prime is headquartered.
Lewis, a company driver for the past three years, edged out Rodney McCloud, winner of the inaugural fitness event. Finishing third was Justin Boschee, last year’s runner-up.
To be named Fittest of the Fleet, drivers from Prime (No. 16 in the CCJ Top 250) had to complete a series of timed events testing their strength, speed, endurance, agility and athleticism, according to Siphiwe Baleka, Prime’s driver fitness coach. Drivers from Bison Transport (No. 68) also competed Prime’s Fittest of the Fleet competition on Labor Day weekend.
