McCurdy, Serrano win District 6 ‘roadeo’
Stacey McCurdy, Arco Maintenance, won the District 6 Truck Roadeo in the Sugar City maintenance yard May 17, earning 1,945 points. Camilo Serrano, Dubois Maintenance, won first place in the foreman/engineer/transportation-technician-engineering category of the contest, with 1,993 points — the highest score of any contestant in the competition.
Final scores reflected an average of two rounds through the course for dump-truck drivers and front-end loader operators, a truck inspection and a written exam. Participants are given 10 minutes to find five “planted” defects in the truck-inspection category and 10 minutes to answer 10 multiple-choice questions.
Placing third in the competition was Trent Maupin, Sugar City maintenance, with 1,935 points. Maupin won the district roadeo the last two years. Serrano finished second in last year's D6 roadeo in the Transportation Tech.series.
