Or at least making the payments, most trucking companies don't provide their drivers a rig totally own by the company.

My late father in law was a trucker for 40 years, he didn't own his own rig unfortunately. His company provided him one.
however he hauled vehicles for corporate buisiness, car dealerships, rent a car places,  etc. he even hauled cars for Alan Jacksons
crew once.

your right though RJOh, most companies don't loan out rigs, some even make thier drivers cover thier own insurance.
a truckers life is hard, mently physically, and its hell on family life. and contrary to popular believe they don't make as
much money as one might think.

I'm glad to see this guy is getting out of the buis!

10-4

      I think a lot more truckers will be purchasing lottery tickets on account of him.

      They seem like a great couple and I hope they enjoy this blessing.

        There's another trucker that won a Mega Millions jackpot in 2015.

        "Steven Peloquin, a professional truck driver for nearly 30 years, purchased the ticket at Penn 80/Flying J Travel Plaza, 1460 N. Ridge Road, Milton, Northumberland County, PA"

          Congratulations to this jackpot winner. I hope this winner takes the lump sum. I wonder what he'll do with the money?

          I hope that one $2 ticket is the only one that matches all 5 numbers plus the Powerball to win the largest Powerball Jackpot in United States history of over $2 Billion Dollars!

            You'll find out soon enough. We know that the Robinson family bought a castle with a private lake far away from humanity. Stay tuned.

              I can guarantee you that the lot lizards from now on will be glued to his truck doors like dried gum on a park bench.  Unlucky man. Cool

                That is sad but true; he'll wished he threw in the towel and quit driving that truck.
