Three truckers will compete live at August’s The Great American Trucking Show, where the Dallas-bound drivers have been invited to participate in Overdrive-Red Eye Radio’s Trucker Talent Search finals.

The three, Michael Lochmiller, Terrance Mathis and Richard Woods, were selected by judges from a group of 42 entries.

Michael Lochmiller, 48, of Las Vegas, Nevada
Company driver, System Transport

Terrance Mathis, 47, of Rockford, Illinois
Company driver, Kloeckner Metals

Richard Woods, 42, of Hickory Flat, Mississippi
Owner-operator, Eagle Systems

Trucker and recording artist Tony Justice will emcee the live competition. The Everhart Transportation driver out of Tennessee has been an over-the-road truck driver since 2000.

The first-place winner, selected by a panel of judges, receives $1,000, plus a studio recording session provided by AxleOutPro.
