SURREY, B.C. — A Canadian Peterbilt technician working out of Pacific Peterbilt did Canada proud, winning the companys National PACCAR PX Skills Challenge at a dealer event in Texas.

Trevor Friesen took top honours at a North American challenge hosted at the companys National Customer Service Conference in St. Louis.

More than 330 Peterbilt technicians representing 208 full-service Pete dealers took part in the competition. Friesen won by beating out 20 finalists in solving real-life engine diagnostic issues using resources such as electronic engine analysis tools, Peterbilts ServiceNet and standard shop tools.

Trevor exhibited a keen understanding of PACCARs PX-6 and PX-8 medium duty engines. His diagnostic skill was clearly demonstrated in quickly identifying and solving a complex serviceable engine issue, says Scott Pearson, Peterbilt assistant general manager, sales and marketing. Trevors performance has set the standard for dealer service technicians as we continue to develop the full-range of PACCAR engines.

Ron Gallant of Peterbilt New Brunswick finished in third place. Sandwiched between them was second place winner John Shaddy of Truck Parts and Equipment in Las Vegas.
