Columbus, OH– On August 18, 2018 Ohio’s Scott Woodrome of FedEx Freight was named as the Bendix Grand Champion of the 2018 National Truck Driving Championships, held at the Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio. This is Scott’s first win as the NTDC Grand Champion.
Scott has been driving for FedEx Freight for 12 years and has driven over 25 years with a safety record of over 1.8 million miles. Scott won first place in his class at the Ohio Trucking Association Truck Driving Championships several times, taking home the coveted Ohio TDC Grand Champion eagle award in 2012, 2017, and 2018. Scott was also named OTA’s 2015 Driver of the Year and has served as an America’s Road Team Captain with the American Trucking Associations. Scott lives in Middletown, Ohio, with his wife Lorraine, whom he asked to join him on stage to accept his award.
NTDC participants competed against one another to see whose industry knowledge and skills would take home Grand Champion honors. Scott, along with over 420 competitors, took a written test, performed a pre-trip inspection, and navigated a driving course with six problem areas that drivers face every day while on the road.
The Ohio Trucking Association would like to congratulate Scott on this incredible accomplishment and thank him for his years of service to the industry and dedication to safety.
