-- How Will You Use This Story? --


(OPEN):
DON LOGAN--A TOPEKA, KANSAS-BASED DRIVER FOR FEDEX FREIGHT--HAS BEEN NAMED THE "GRAND CHAMPION" AT THIS YEAR'S "NATIONAL TRUCK DRIVING CHAMPIONSHIPS"...

(LOGAN):
"
I'M HONORED TO HAVE EARNED THE 'GRAND CHAMPION'-TITLE.  IT'S A THRILL TO GET THROUGH THE STATE-COMPETITIONS, AND EVEN BE AT THE NATIONAL LEVEL."

(BRIDGE):
SINCE YOU HAVE TO DRIVE ACCIDENT-FREE FOR AT LEAST A YEAR TO BE ELIGIBLE, DO YOU HAVE ANY TIPS FOR DRIVERS?

(LOGAN):
"
ONE OF MY KEYS TO SAFETY IS TO NOT BE IN A HURRY:  I'VE LEARNED THAT BEING IN A HURRY DOESN'T SAVE TIME--AND THAT PUTTING A CUSHION OF DISTANCE BETWEEN ME AND OTHER VEHICLES HELPS US ALL TO GET HOME SAFELY."

(CLOSE):
LOGAN IS ALSO A SIX-TIME KANSAS STATE-CHAMPION WHO HAS DRIVEN MORE THAN TWO-MILLION ACCIDENT-FREE MILES, DURING HIS 25-YEAR DRIVING-CAREER.  THE "NATIONAL TRUCK DRIVING CHAMPIONSHIPS" ARE SPONSORED BY THE AMERICAN TRUCKING ASSOCIATIONS; THEY WERE HELD EARLIER THIS MONTH [AUGUST] IN MINNESOTA.
