Florida - 1st place Step Van
The third time was a charm for Ron, who earned his first Florida Step Van title on his third attempt. A 16-year driver for FedEx Express in Miami, he is closing in on 200,000 miles during his career. Even though he would be a race car driver if he could choose another profession, he obeys the laws and makes safety his number-one priority. Away from work, he enjoys racing, flying radio-control airplanes and woodworking. He and his wife Maria have three children, Veronica, Mikael and Melayna, and two grandchildren, Felix and Jacob. The Shaheen family lives in Miami, Fla.
