  • Timothy Pye
  • Immanuel Odongkara
  • Michael Bonniwell

Each finalist, selected from a list of 46 nominees, was recognized at an Aug. 23 ceremony and received $1,000 cash and additional prizes.

Werner also had two drivers take home honors in Overdrive’s Pride and Polish Competition. David Green and the Operation Freedom 2 truck received first place in the Working Bobtail – First Show – 2012 and newer class. Tom Pietrzak earned second place in the Working Combo – Company Truck – 2013 or newer class.

Congratulations to all of these professional drivers!

As mentioned yesterday, Werner Professional Driver Tim Dean took the show truck to Charlotte last weekend. The truck was entered in the show’s Pride and Polish. Tim put a lot of work preparing the truck for the competition, making sure that it was all clean and represented the company well.

Tim won third place with the truck. Congratulations Tim, and thanks for making the company look good.
