Congratulations to our October Featured Driver of the Month, Rich Conaway Jr.!
Rich has been trucking for 14 years and has been with Powersource Transportation for six years! He was inspired to become a truck driver because his grandfather was a truck driver and he was fascinated by trucks as a kid. Rich also worked in factories throughout the years and admired that the truck drivers were always in a good mood. Rich drives a 2005 Freightliner Century that is equipped with a long slide, locking 5th wheel, and hot center pin. He also holds tankers, and doubles/triples endorsements. Rich is the President of Truckers United for Charities and a lifetime member of the OOIDA! Rich’s favorite type of freight is shows because he gets to catch up with drivers that he hasn’t seen in a while. His favorite part about driving a truck for a living is the freedom to see the country and listen to music. He likes that he gets to stop wherever he wants when he doesn’t have a trailer. Rich always brings his bible with him when he is on the road. He also brings a brick from the girls’ gym from his old high school. He likes to post pictures of the brick and its adventures on the road on social media! When Rich is not on the road, he enjoys polishing his truck. He’s certainly earned the reputation for how shiny his truck is! He also loves restoring and showing his antique cars – a ’69 Ford F100 and ’67 GTO Convertible.
Congratulations, Rich, on all of your hard work and success! We’re so proud to have you on our team!
