Our April Featured Driver of the Month is Richard L.!
Richard was inspired to become a truck driver when he was a young teenager. His father owned dump trucks and his father’s best friend owned a tractor and semi. They used to take him for rides around the block and he just fell in love with trucks.
Richard went on to get his CDL license and has been trucking for 23 years now.
He drives a 2016 Freightliner Cascadia equipped with a long slide, pintle hook, headache rack, beacons, chains/binders/straps, light bar, and OD flags and banners. He also holds his tank, doubles, and triples endorsements!
Richard has been with Powersource for nearly three years now. His favorite type of freight are OD loads because they are challenging, and he never knows what he is going to haul.
His favorite part about driving a truck for a living is the freedom and that he can be his own boss.
Richard always brings his 1-year-old bully, Rambo, with him on the road.
Richard is engaged to his fiancé, Donna. He also has a 23-year-old daughter, Danielle, and two grandchildren.
When he is not on the road, you will find him at home in Grand Junction, CO. riding his Harley.
Thanks for all that you do, Richard!
