American Trucking Associations has named 20 professional truck drivers, including Bill Krouse of Shakopee, to the 2017-2018 America’s Road Team, an elite group of professionals who serve as trucking industry ambassadors.

America’s Road Team was established in 1986 as an outreach initiative designed to introduce the motoring public, lawmakers and the media to the trucking industry. Since its inception, America’s Road Team has sought to impress upon millions of drivers the trucking industry’s safety record, essentiality, and professionalism.

“There are 3.5 million safe, professional truck drivers on our nation’s roads and every single one of them has a valuable story to tell. ATA is proud to select these respected drivers as the newest America’s Road Team captains and we are thankful that they will continue to tell their important stories throughout the country,” said ATA president and CEO Chris Spear. “Their companies, friends and families should all be incredibly proud of these drivers for dedicating themselves to spreading a positive message about trucking.”
