Flying J Road Warrior Contest

Hosted by Pilot Flying J, the 2021 Road Warrior contest accepted nominations throughout the month of September. Professional Drivers could be nominated on the company website or with a Facebook comment. Anyone nominating a driver had to describe why they considered that driver a “road warrior.” The nominations were judged on three criteria:

  • 50% – Impact of Nominee with Respect to the Theme of the Contest (“road warrior”)
  • 25% – Quality of Submission
  • 25% – Ability to emotionally move the Judges
