Walmart’s Mike White Wins Indiana, Is Hungry for More

INDIANAPOLIS — Charles “Mike” White of Walmart Transportation is not one to rest on his laurels.

The Grand Champion of the 2016 National Truck Driving Championships showed he is as hungry as ever by winning Indiana’s Sleeper Berth class and capturing Grand Champion honors June 8 to solidify his status as one of the safe-driving greats of the truck driving industry.

White

Since winning a national title, White, the low-key driver with more than four decades of professional experience, has remained true to his craft.

He has devoted many weekends to practice, repeating myriad maneuvers on simulated courses, such as parallel parking and obstacle avoidance situations. He also memorized the industry’s regulatory handbook, the basis for the written exam portion of the state and national tournament.
