Three Ace Doran Hauling & Rigging owner operators were recognized during a special evening of celebration on Jan. 24, 2015 at the Indianapolis Marriott North as Indiana Driver of the Month by the Indiana Motor Truck Association. Owner Operator Terry Carver was named IMTA Driver of the Month for February 2014, and Owner Operator Tim Cummings was named IMTA Driver of the Month for October 2014. Owner Operator David Kidd was also named Driver of the Month for June. The three were nominated by Ace Doran, a division of Bennett Motor Express, because of their outstanding driving history.
During the banquet a total of 24 drivers were honored by the organization. To qualify drivers must live in Indiana and be crash free for the prior year. Drivers are selected on anonymity based on a point system that includes the driver’s safety record, career awards and recognition, exceptional acts, community service, and more. Two drivers were selected for each month – one recognized with less than 25 years of experience and one recognized with more than 25 years of experience. The winners were announced on Jan. 10 and attended the banquet on Jan. 24.
Carver and Cummings attended the event with their respective family members. However, Kidd was unable to attend due to illness. Our Safety Director accepted Kidd’s plaque on his behalf.
