Holland Professional Driver Bruce Renton Named National Rookie Of The Year At 2013 National Truck Driving Championships

OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Aug. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Holland, a subsidiary of YRC Worldwide Inc. (NASDAQ: YRCW), is proud to announce that professional driver Bruce Renton of Grand Rapids, Mich. has been named Rookie of the Year at the 2013 National Truck Driving Championships (NTDC) after competing in the Straight Truck division. Renton competed with 422 other state champion professional drivers from across the United States at the event which took place August 20 — 24 in Salt Lake City, UT.

Bruce Renton is a Gulf War veteran, Sgt. E-5, who received the U.S. Army commendation medal. He has been in the trucking industry for 13 years, and has been with Holland for over one year. Renton is a city driver and dockworker at the Holland Grand Rapids service center. This was his first year to ever take part in truck driving competitions. He has driven over 900,000 accident-free miles in his career.

"We congratulate Bruce on this outstanding achievement and for his dedication to safety and quality," says Scott Ware, president of Holland. "These drivers have proven to be the best of the best – true safety champions – and we are proud to have them represent Holland. We thank them for their continued commitment to keeping our highways safe. This constant attention to safety combined with a continuous focus on top-notch customer service helps create the Holland difference that sets us apart from other carriers."  

The four-day competition known to many as the "Super Bowl of Safety," tested drivers knowledge of safety, equipment, the industry and driving skills. Now in its 76 th year, the NTDC and affiliated state truck driving championships inspire tens of thousands of drivers to operate accident-free for the right to compete.  

To participate, drivers must be accident-free, regardless of fault, for one year and through the national championships. For more information about Holland and its participation in the NTDC, please visit http://www.hollandregional.com/news/2013/0625-holland-drivers-division-titles.shtml.
