Chaney Enterprises Delivery Pros Lead At 2010 Maryland State Truck Driving Championship
Delivery professionals from Chaney Enterprises gave their best, winning top awards at the Maryland State Truck Driving Championships in Timonium.
For a second consecutive year, Chaney Enterprises aggregate delivery professionals (ADPs) swept the dump truck division, taking all three top spots. Susan O’Steen took first place, Ed Morris placed second and Sam Brown came in third. All three delivery professionals are stationed in Waldorf.
Taking second place in the concrete mixer division was Concrete Delivery Professional (CDP) Lamont Hopkins of the Annapolis plant. Mike Jordahl, CDP from the Hollywood plant placed third.
“One of the reasons Chaney Enterprises and our sister companies can perform as the best in the industry is because I believe our Concrete Delivery Professionals and Aggregate Delivery Professionals represent our industry’s best,” said William F. Childs, IV, president of Chaney Enterprises. “It takes a great deal of courage and years of past success to even be considered to compete in this competition, and we are all proud of each professional.”
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 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 safety regulations.
Preparation and participation for this event is an example of the high priority that Chaney Enterprises places on excellence in training and safety practices.
