Wade Hancock: National Van Driver of the Year

Wade Hancock, the decorated van driver representing Cullman County and Cullman Area Rural Transportation System (CARTS), has won the National Van Driver of the Year Award in Pittsburgh, PA this past weekend.

A roadeo is a competitive driving event for motor vehicle drivers in which drivers compete to pass through a variety of obstacles in the smallest amount of time.

The 29th Annual National Community Transportation Roadeo was held indoors at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, PA, on Saturday and Sunday.

The National Community Transportation Roadeo is the only national venue to honor and celebrate the value of rural and community transit operators, the backbone of the Community Transportation industry.

This exciting event draws drivers from around the country to compete for top scores on a course that tests skills on every level of the drivers’ abilities, with a primary focus on safe operations and passenger sensitivity.
