FedEx Ground
Montana - 1st place 5-Axle Sleeper


Russ, of Custom Transport, Inc. domiciled out of the FedEx Ground station in Missoula, won his second straight Montana state title, this year in the 5-Axle Sleeper class. Even though he admits he's a competitive guy, it was his wife, Lindsay (who’s competing at the NTDC in the 3-Axle class), who inspired him to compete at the TDC. During his 35-year professional driving career, Russ has racked up more than 2.4 million accident-free miles by avoiding distractions. Away from work, he enjoys hunting, fishing, boating and trucks. Russ and Lindsay live in Alberton, Mont.
