Landstar paid tribute to the best and the safest Landstar owner-operators during the 4th annual Landstar BCO All-Star Celebration held in Orlando, Florida July 1st – 3rd.
The three day event featured an awards program where Landstar inducted 10 Business Capacity Owners (BCOs) as Landstar Roadstar winners, 136 BCOs for driving one million consecutive miles without a preventable accident and 16 BCOs for driving two million safe miles.
To top off the celebration, Landstar presented its second truck giveaway of 2015. The truck, a 2016 Peterbilt 579, was in part sponsored by Comdata and reserved for a Landstar Roadstar driver or Million Miler. Congratulations to new Landstar Million Miler, Rich Snyder of New Bern, North Carolina– who won the truck! Richard’s name was selected from the raffle during the All-Star Celebration on July 3rd.
When Rich’s name was called to get up on stage and man one of the five faux Landstar trucks, his wife Debbie said she actually pinched herself to make sure it was really happening.
Rich put his keys in the truck, his lights went on and they stayed on, signifying that he was the winner of the Peterbilt 579!
“I couldn’t believe it, it wasn’t until I looked at the photographer and he said, ‘It’s you! You got it!’ that I realized I won. I still can’t believe it, I don’t even remember shaking Jim Gattoni’s hand,” said Snyder.
The Landstar All-Star Truck Giveaway Powered by Comdata was the grand finale of July’s All-Star Celebration held at the Hilton Bonnet Creek Resort in Orlando. The event is held each year to honor Landstar Million Mile Safe Drivers and Landstar Roadstar recipients for their safe driving records and professionalism.
