Gayl RussellI have been in the trucking industry since 1985 owning my first truck in 1991. I also raise, train and show paints. Last year, I qualified for the Regional Championships, held in California. In 2009, I had brain tumor surgery, and was back hauling cows 2 months later. At 51, I am in excellein good physical shape from both myjob and riding horses. The guys I work with jokingly tell me I “am a walking advertisement for McDonalds and Wrangler jeans.”
