The National Association of Small Trucking Companies (NASTC) represents over 4,600 trucking companies in the U.S. And Canada that employ over 65,000 drivers collectively. Each year the association sponsors a driver of the year program to recognize the very best drivers within their group. Among the drivers selected to this year’s team of “Drivers of the Year” was Mary Peterson Norton, of Knapp, WI, who has a truck leased to Bob Erickson Trucking of Circle Pines, MN.
“As a recipient of this prestigious award, Mrs. Mary Peterson Norton joins a very elite group that represent the very best of our 65,000 drivers,” according to Buster Anderson, Executive Vice President of NASTC.
“Bob Erickson Trucking is very proud of their drivers and should be very proud of themselves as well,” Mr. Anderson added. “It says a lot about a company when they can attract and keep owner operators of this caliber.”
Mary Peterson Norton has driven for Bob Erickson Trucking for over 11 years, and has been a professional driver for over 35 years and has accumulated over 3,690,000 accident free miles. For the last 29 years she and her husband, Jack Norton have been a team driving operation.
