Three truckers who helped deliver loads to Minneapolis in preparation for the upcoming Super Bowl have been chosen to receive tickets to the game, access to VIP events leading up to the game, as well as tickets to a Florida Georgia Line concert the night before the game.
Trucker-focused app maker One20 announced drivers Lee Schmitt, Steve Brooks and Micheal Wheeler as the winners of the company’s contest. An estimated 112,000 loads were brought to Minneapolis hauling infrastructure for the game, food, memorabilia and more.
Brooks, a retired U.S. Army veteran, normally hauls oversize loads from his Iowa home base. Wheeler is an owner-operator from Oklahoma who owns SMJ Trucking with his wife, Shannon. Schmitt is a One20 Trucking driver who, with his wife Lisa, helped haul event equipment from Houston to Minneapolis for the game.
“Most people don’t even stop to think about how events like the Super Bowl happen and the amount of work that goes into hauling everything from city to city each year,” Wheeler said. “It’s cool that ONE20 is making it all about recognizing the driver. More companies ought to do the same.”
