Overdrive and Senior Editor Todd Dills have once again been named finalists in the prestigious Jesse H. Neal business editorial awards program.

This year, Overdrive is a finalist in the Best Series category, and Dills is a finalist in the Best Data Journalist and Best Range of Work categories.

Overdrive’s CSA’s Data Trail series scored the finalist mark in the Best Series category. See all entries in the series at this link.

The stories are based on proprietary research from RigDig Business Intelligence, a division of Randall-Reilly, publisher of Overdrive. Dills’ work on the series also led to his nod for Best Data Journalist, along with other major reporting analyzing owner-operator rates and load schedules (Cycle Analysis), the current state of the truck market (Buyer’s Market) and more.

Dills’ wide body of writing, podcasting and video this year earned the finalist spot for Best Range of Work.

Dills received the Grand Neal Award in 2014 for his 2013 series also based on CSA and its treatment of smaller carriers and independent truckers. The Neal Awards represent the highest honor in business-to-business journalism.

Neal Award winners will be announced April 1.
