SPECIAL HOOD ON NO. 16 CON-WAY FREIGHT FORD HONORS COMPANY’S TRUCK DRIVERS

The No. 16 Con-way Freight Ford Fusion
driven by Colin Braun will feature a special hood this weekend at
Watkins Glen International. The traditionally white Con-way Freight
logo will have the names of a record 92 truck drivers who have earned a
trip to the National Truck Driving Championships; often referred to as
the “Super Bowl of Safety” in the industry.

The national competition is being held this week in Columbus, Ohio and
drivers will face testing in three areas: a timed, written exam, a
pre-trip inspection, and a driving skills test. Last year, three
Con-way Freight drivers placed first in their divisions and Con-way
Freight driver Dale Duncan was named Grand Champion. Those skilled
enough to place first in their division receive special recognition from
Con-way Freight, which includes the choice of a brand new Ford F-150 or
Ford Mustang.

“This is such a cool thing that Con-way Freight does to honor its
truck drivers,” said Braun. “As a company, they put so much
emphasis on safety and so it’s no surprise to me that a record number
of their drivers are attending the national competition. I’m very
proud to have all these folks on board the No. 16 Con-way Freight Ford
this weekend and I’m hopeful we can get a good solid finish for
them.”

Braun and the No. 16 Con-way Freight Ford can be seen this Saturday at
Watkins Glen for the Zippo 200 at the Glen scheduled for Saturday, Aug.
7 at 2:00 p.m. EST. The pre-race broadcast begins at 1:30 p.m. EST on
ESPN.
