Days in Jacksonville, BCO David Gray might have had the best time of all. That’s because he took home a brand new Peterbilt in the Landstar Deliver to Win Truck Giveaway powered by Comdata.
Gray is the proud new owner of a 2016 Peterbilt 579, viper blue in color and equipped with a 450-horsepower Cummins ISX-15 engine, 80-inch high rise sleeper and Eaton transmission. He is the latest in a long line of BCOs to win a new truck during Landstar events such as Appreciation Days and BCO All-Star Celebrations. Counting Gray’s prize, Landstar has played a part in giving away 31 trucks in the past 21 years.
Gray, who hails from Chatsworth, Georgia, has been with Landstar since July of 2013. He says leasing on with Landstar was the best decision he’s ever made – and not just because he won the truck.
“Winning this truck is a life-changing event…but even before this, coming to Landstar was a life-changing event,” said Gray. “I should have done it a long time ago.”
Stay tuned for more Gray’s story in the upcoming issue of The Road to Success magazine!
The BCO All-Star Celebration is almost upon us. In just days, Landstar Roadstars and Million Mile Safe Drivers will gather for the 3rd annual All-Star event to celebrate the newest class of inductees. This group of elite BCOs and their families will enjoy food, prizes, games, tours of historic Savannah, Georgia, fishing, shopping, and swimming, but even more than all of that, they will enjoy the camaraderie and pride that comes with knowing they have achieved a career milestone.
On average, it takes a truck operator 10 years to travel a million miles. This distance would take the typical driver of a passenger vehicle 67 years – around the time of their 83rd birthday – to complete! And Landstar Roadstars take that career milestone to the next stop. Each Roadstar, previously recognized as a Landstar Million Miler, is chosen for his or her consistently high levels of safety, productivity and excellent customer service.
This All-Star event is our way of acknowledging a highly successful career with Landstar, as well as a way to give back to those who give so much every day. We realize there are a lot of other moments that owner-operators have missed while on the road, and so, this celebration is just for you!
