Gary Herrygers, a driver for The Boeing Co., was happily surprised when he won the 5-Axle division at this year’s Washington Truck Driving Championships.

He was even happier (and more surprised) when he was announced as Grand Champion minutes later. He told Transport Topics he still is “on cloud nine.”

Herrygers has been involved in competition truck driving for about a decade, and won the state 5-Axle division in 2012. He traveled to the national competition in Minneapolis and racked up an impressive No. 3 finish in that division.
