FedEx will field a record number of 69 truck drivers at the National Truck Driving Championships in Tampa, FL on August 16th. The shipping company is set to defend its title of National Grand Champion against 400 other competitors for the third straight year. FedEx set the previous record last year with 62 drivers, which isn't as large nor as funny a number as 69.
Seriously though, this news is something of which FedEx should be extremely proud. This company has 76,000 drivers traveling on the road with the rest of us, and while we're sure they're often in a hurry at least we know FedEx sets an extremely high standard for its drivers in terms of safety and ability to handle a big rig.
