The top trucker out of the Lone Star state last year was Michael Cirrincione of FedEx Freight. Competing in the 3-Axle, Cirrincione took home the Grand Champion trophy at the Texas Truck Driving Championships to secure a spot in the national tournament.
“It felt overwhelming,” Cirrincione said about his victory. “I’ve done states three times, and I didn’t do so well the other two times. So this time I didn’t expect to do well, but it was just a good day.” The secret to a successful showing at states was to remain focused on the course. For Cirrincione, a driver with 25 years of experience, the tournament in Columbus, Ohio, was his debut on the national stage.
