Scott wins grand champion at truck driving championships

The Mission competitor continues to prove his skills

Mission's Dale Scott earned more hardware after the recent truck driving competition.

Mission’s Dale Scott earned grand champion at this year’s Professional Truck Driving Championships June 22 at Tradex in Abbtosford.

The longtime competitor, who has won first place in several categories and a frequent visitor to national events, drives for Canadian Freightways. And as part of the CF team, comprised of three other drivers, the group took the team trophy.

Scott also took first place in the single-tandem category, and this win guaranteed him another trip to the nationals, being held Sept. 19-22 in Abbotsford.

In the competitions, drivers must pass a written test, pre-trip inspection and driving competition, which simulates the everyday skills of maneouvering, cornering and distance judgment. To compete, drivers must have no preventable accidents in the 12 months prior to the championships. This include even a minor occurrence such as a broken tail light on a trailer.
