Concrete Delivery Pros Prepare for NRMCA National Tournament September 16
Waldorf, MD—Demonstrating top-notch knowledge and skills, delivery professionals from Chaney Enterprises took top awards at the recent Maryland State Truck Driving Championships in Timonium. More than 100 truck driving professionals from across the state competed.
Chaney Enterprises’ Aggregate Delivery Professional (ADP) Tyrone (Sam) Brown from Waldorf Sand & Gravel won third place in the dump truck division. Concrete Delivery Professional (CDP) Steve Waclawski from the Bestgate Plant won second place in the concrete mixer division. Billy Hickman, CDP at the Waldorf Plant, took third place.
Both Waclawski and Hickman are preparing for the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association’s “National Mixer Driver Championship” truck driving tournament on September 16 at National Harbor in Prince George’s County, Maryland. The driver competition kicks off the 2012 ConcreteWorks Conference & Expo, the NRMCA’s national convention. Chaney Enterprises is the host company for this event, in which more than 30 mixer drivers from around the country will compete for the “Best of the Best” title.
The truck driving competition consists of three phases. Drivers must execute driving maneuvers along a complicated field course that simulates conditions frequently encountered on highways or jobsites across the country. Next the drivers must successfully complete a pre-trip inspection on a specified vehicle; then, drivers are tested on their knowledge of operations and safety regulations.
