North Dakota - 1st place Step Van
The third time was a charm for Chris as he earned his first Step Van title in North Dakota this year. He also won the Grand Champion award. A professional driver for 16 years – three of them with FedEx Express in Fargo – he has driven more than 1 million miles during his career without ever having an accident. Safety is a lifestyle for the Moorhead Police Department volunteer, who advises motorists to always stay focused and avoid distractions. Chris and his wife Michelle have four children (Josh, Jennifer, Joe and Nicole) and two grandchildren (Carmen and Isabella). The Martens family lives in Fargo, N.D.
