Daniel Johnson, a professional truck driver for Meteor Express Inc. in Scottsboro, recently competed in the Alabama Truck Driving Competition, sponsored by the Alabama Trucking Association in Pelham.

The event was held in late May at the Pelham Civic Center and consisted of three parts. There was a written test consisting of 40 questions, a vehicle defect event where the competition had to point out the defects on a semi-tractor and 53-foot long trailer and the obstacle course where the drivers had to navigate through a tight course of six different obstacles measuring their maneuvering abilities, speed and accuracy.
