Featured Driver, September, 2020

Michael R.

Congratulations to our September Featured Driver of the Month, Michael R.!

Michael became a truck driver because he enjoys traveling, making money, and being on the open road. He was also inspired to become a truck driver because his uncle drove a truck.

Michael drives a 2007 Freightliner equipped with a longslide, locking 5th wheel, electric brakes, chains/ratchets/straps/binders and OD flags/banners/beacons. He also holds all endorsements – doubles/triples, tankers, and hazmat!

Michael has been trucking for 20 years and has been with Powersource Transportation for three years.
His favorite type of trailers are the dump trailers.

His favorite part about driving a truck for a living is the freedom to do what he wants, when he wants. He also loves that he gets to travel and see/do things that he normally wouldn’t have the opportunity to do.

Michael says that the most important thing to bring on the road is a sense of humor.

Michael has been married to his wife, Elaine, for seven years and they have seven children – five girls and two boys!

When Michael is not on the road, you will find him back home in Canton, MS., spending time with his family, hunting, fishing, horseback riding, or riding his 4-wheeler.

Thank you for all that you do, Michael! We are so lucky to have you on our team!
