2018 Recap


Kansas’ Don Logan Earns 12th Trip to NTDC

This is a warning to the drivers who qualified for the National Truck Driving Championships in the Tank Truck division: Don Logan of FedEx Freight will be joining you.

(And his competitive fire still is burning strong.)

The national Grand Champion in 2012 with a long list of accolades surpassed the competition at the Kansas qualifier in mid-June. His strong showing at states marked the fifth time he’s earned best-in-show honors, paving the way for a 12th trip to the national stage.

This year, Logan kicked off his training early: “I start studying for the written test in late April. … And the driving portion of it, this year I probably practiced more than I have in the past, which was probably, I think I practiced four Sundays for two or three hours, leading up to the competition, which is a little bit more than I’ve done in the past.”
