Scott says his success comes from following what he has been taught at CR 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 CR England since September 2010.

The promotion ran from April to June. Drivers had to have availability at 75% or higher, an average mpg of 7.4, an idle of less than 15% and no chargeable late loads.
