Volvo announced that its VN was driven to victory in five of the seven truck classes at the National Truck Driving Championships, sponsored by the American Trucking Associations, held Aug. 19-23 in Houston.
“The word is out that Volvo is the truck to use if you want to win,” says Scott Kress, Volvo senior vice president of sales and marketing. “The best drivers know the visibility, maneuverability and ease of operation that makes the Volvo VN so productive and comfortable in day-to-day operations also gives them the competitive edge. Even drivers who use other brands in their fleets drive Volvo VNs in the NTDC. Volvo drives success for customers – and delivers trophies.”
NTDC competitors choose which brand of truck they drive in the competition. Of the seven categories where Volvo was a choice, five were won by drivers in Volvo VNs: three axle class, four axle class, five axle class, tank truck class and twin trailer class. Drivers in Volvo VNs swept the twin trailer class with the top three places; scored a second-place finish in the flatbed class; and took two of the top three places in the three-, four- and five-axle classes.
