Printer-Friendly FedEx “Aces”


The FedEx Aces program, introduced in 2007, is designed to honor the very best of our truck driving champions. The initiative recognizes FedEx Champions who have maintained safe-driving records, won at least five state championships and participated in at least five national competitions.

The inaugural Aces class included 18 champions and included past champions who had already met the criteria. Five more champions were added in 2008, with three more inductees in 2009, five in 2010, four in 2011 nine in 2012, six in 2013 and six in 2014:

  • Paul Butkowski - FedEx Freight (Minnesota)
  • Erik Lilleberg - FedEx Ground (Montana)
  • Dave Magee - FedEx Freight (Tennessee)
  • Chris Outen - FedEx Freight (Oregon)
  • Chris Shaw - FedEx Express (New Mexico)
  • Brooks Washburn - FedEx Freight (New Mexico)

Each Ace will receive a commemorative plaque to be displayed at the driver’s domicile facility as well as one to keep.


Congratulations to all of the FedEx Aces for their stellar commitment to safety!
