He’s only been driving for about four years, but he sure knows a thing or two about trucking. Jordan Laventure won AllTruckJobs’ Trucker Trivia contest during the 2018 National Truck Driver Appreciation Week. Truck drivers could enter the contest by answering a trivia question per day on our Facebook page. Every time that they answered a question right, they were entered for a chance to win! Jordan answered several of the true/false questions correctly and just happened to be randomly selected as the winner. As a result, he received a $100 Amazon gift card. Luckily for us, he agreed to an exclusive interview so that we can get some insight into what it’s like for him as a truck driver in Pennsylvania. Check out the interview below!
