The 2020 Owner-Operator of the Year and the 2020 Company Driver of the Year will each win $25,000. Two finalists in both categories, four other drivers total, will win $2,500 each.
The six finalists will attend TCA’s annual meeting, Truckload 2021, in Nashville, Jan. 23-26, where the winners will be announced.
Eligibility includes fleet operators who own no more than five power units and drive one of them full-time. For more information or to nominate a driver, visit truckload.org/DOY.
The Owner-Operator of the Year contest is produced by TCA and Overdrive. TCA and Truckers News produce the Company Driver of the Year contest.
The competition is intended to recognize drivers with strong safety records who’ve also improved the image of trucking and served their communities. The owner-operator award also recognizes best business practices.
Kevin Kocmich was named the 2019 Owner-Operator of the Year, while Donald Lewis of Wilson Logistics was the 2019 Company Driver of the Year.
