2019 Recap

Jarvis

After having no Tank Truck class last year, Jeremiah Jarvis of FedEx Freight has given it new life. Jarvis competed against a small but mighty field of 18 drivers June 1, coming out victorious.

Last year's Grand Champion Chris Novak of FedEx Express was able to secure a ride to nationals, taking first in 5-Axle. His colleague, Chris Goddard, a returning division winner from last year will also be at nationals in Pittsburgh after finishing first in 4-Axle.

David Doucet of FedEx Express was the third returning winner with Goddard and Novak, scoring high enough to place first in Straight Truck division for the second time.

2018 Recap

Novak

Chris Novak captured Grand Champion honors to become one of six men representing Vermont at NTDC in Columbus, Ohio. Novak drives for FedEx Express and competed in the 5-axle division.

While the field in Vermont is small, it is by no mean short on talent. FedEx Express and FedEx Freight sent five men to NTDC this year after dominating the state championships.

The 2017 Grand Champion, Chris Goddard, was also looking forward to a return visit to NTDC to try his hat in the 3-axle division.
