2018 Recap


Carlose London Leads Contingent of Jersey Boys Bound for Ohio and NTDC

No train, no gain. That’s the London family mantra captured in four short words. “You can’t get lazy,” said Jaylen London, whose father, Carlose, took home Grand Champion at the New Jersey truck safety tournament June 23.

“I just like to motivate him, just make sure he’s working and especially studying,” he said. “Studying is like a big part of this job.”

The junior London joined dozens of spectators on a cloudy afternoon in Central Jersey to root for his father, a driver with XPO Logistics. Carlose excelled in the 4-axle at a makeshift skills course at the APA Hotel Woodbridge, Exit 131A off the Garden State Parkway northbound.
