2018 Recap


A family that practices truck driving together wins Grand Champion titles together. This can be said for XPO Logistics’ Jeff Langenhahn, who won Wisconsin’s 2018 Grand Champion title at the Wisconsin Truck Driving Championships after consistently practicing on weekends with his wife and children. The family likes to set up courses for Langenhahn to use in his practice. Langenhahn also won the Twins class and captured the Ray Newberry “Mr. Safety” award.

As a result, Langenhahn earned another trip to nationals, where he won Grand Champion honors in 2014. At the national competition last year, Langenhahn came home with a No. 5 finish in the Twins class.
