North Dakota - 1st place Straight Truck
For the fourth time in six years, Joe won a North Dakota state title – this one in the Straight Truck class. A driver for FedEx Freight based in Grand Forks for the past seven years, he has racked up more than 400,000 miles during his 20-year driving career without ever having an accident. Joe believes that the key to his accident-free record has been being a defensive driver, and he advises other motorists to do the same to help keep the roads safe for everyone. In his spare time, he enjoys snowmobiling, golfing and fishing. Joe lives in East Grand Forks, Minnesota.
