Owner Ashley Hensley of Elizabethtown, Kentucky grew up around big rigs and became a driver at age 21. Then, at 23, he bought a truck to become an owner-operator.

He purchased this 1994 Peterbilt 379 EX HD in 2003. He customized the truck with a new bumper, eight-inch stacks, and a lot of lights. The truck is driven by a Caterpillar engine and a 13-speed transmission.

Ashley mostly hauls cargo regionally and can be found pulling his matching covered wagon with a white side kit and red tarp.

When he isn’t on the road, Ashley is either at home with his son or riding back roads on his motorcycle.
