Pilot Flying J Truck Driver Challenge

Before the Indy Car series race Saturday, the transport drivers of many Indy teams came to the Hawkeye Stages and Newton Convention & Visitors Bureau parking lot to compete in the Pilot Flying J Truck Challenge on Thursday afternoon. The drivers — including Wayne Selman, a transport driver for Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing — had to use the skills they use everyday to compete in the challenge. They navigated between cones and even performed a tire check. Newton was the final location in the four-challenge series, with the drivers competing for a $1,000 challenge prize and a $30,000 series prize for the overall winner. Winners will be announced next week.
