SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- C.R. England, a Salt Lake City-based global transportation provider, has awarded a Harley-Davidson 1200 Custom to Stacy Scott, one of its top drivers, for showing improvement in Mile Per Gallon Average (MPG) and Average Idle percentage for the second quarter 2012.
Scott drives for Daylight Transport in the Dedicated Division and drives from Los Angeles, CA to Indianapolis, IN every week. During the quarter he was able to achieve an average of 7.43 mpg and a 12.8 percent idle, well above his peers in the division. Scott says his success comes from following what he has been taught at C.R. England, including progressive shifting and keeping the truck in top gear as much as possible. He watches his idling and looks for ways to reduce it. He has been with C.R. England since September 2010 and calls Antelope, CA home.
The other finalists included Terrance Grant, National Division company driver and Ben Patterson, Regional Division company driver.
The promotion ran from April 1, 2012 through June 30, 2012. Drivers must have met the following requirements in the second quarter 2012: Availability at 75 percent or higher, an average mpg of 7.4, an idle of less than 15 percent and no chargeable late loads. Competition included drivers that had a start date no later than April 1, 2012.
C.R. England's partners in the promotion are Golden Spike Harley-Davidson, Warner Truck Center, Horizon Truck and Leasing, Loves Travel Stops, and Pilot Flying J.
