REGINA, Sask. — As though the Saskatchewan Professional Truck Driving Championships aren’t challenging enough, sporadic rain made things even trickier for contestants in the June 8 competition.
Drivers, however, weren’t deterred by the weather and at the end of the day, Larry Radons was crowned Grand Champion. Radons won the straight truck category, scoring 467 out of a possible 500 points.
The Top Rookie was Ken Bourgeois of Yanke Group. He also took third place in the tandem-tandem category. Other category winners included: Steve Schwenker of Q-Line Trucking, tandem-tandem; Keoth Atherton, SLH Transport, B-train; and Brian Weslowski, also of SLH won the single-single group as the sole entrant.
Team Saskatchewan will enter the Nationals, comprised of Radons, Schwenker, Atherton and Weslowski.
Also winning an award was Richard Easton of Canadian Freightways, who was presented the Joe Laurin Memorial Award for Professionalism and Good Sportsmanship.
