KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Pilot Flying J kicked off Road Warrior, a new initiative celebrating and honoring professional drivers throughout North America.

“Road Warriors are drivers who go the extra mile,” said Anne LeZotte, Pilot Flying J Communications Manager. “We want to recognize the hard work, dedication and determination of professional drivers. This is our way of showing them that we greatly appreciate their efforts and thanking them for all they do for our economy.”

Anyone can nominate a Road Warrior, and drivers can nominate themselves. You can also nominate coworkers, friends and family members. Road Warriors will be featured on the new Road Warrior website, www.roadwarrior.pilotflyingj.com and on our social media networks. Daily and weekly Road Warriors will receive a variety of prizes including a Road Warrior T-shirt, MyRewards points and an assortment of other items. The grand prize for the ultimate Road Warrior is $10,000.

 “Professional drivers transport more than 65 percent of all U.S. freight annually,” said LeZotte. “We’re excited to recognize and honor these unsung heroes for all they do and the sacrifices they make every day.”

 Voting is currently open and you can nominate Road Warriors through October 3. Once nominations close, finalists will be selected and open voting will begin for the final Road Warrior. We’ll announce the ultimate Road Warrior in December.
