Speed Channel Looking For The Next Trucking Star


Drivers, are your ready for your 15 minutes of fame? Would you like the opportunity to win $10,000? If so, the Speed channel wants you for their new trucking reality series, called Payload.

Payload will feature four drivers– teams or solo, company or owner-operator– as they haul goods from point “A” to point “B,” with some obstacles and u-turns thrown in.  The driver who crosses the finish line first, wins $10,000.  There are seven legs to the competition, so drivers have the opportunity to win $70,000.

Truckers will still be required to follow all state and federal laws.

Who can apply? Anyone with a current CDL, and you don’t have to own your own truck!

To apply, simply fill out an application at the Payload website and send in a 5-10 minute video of yourself.

Video tips:

Be energetic

Be yourself

Show your personality through your clothes, hair, tattoos, etc.

Show off your truck

Tell a story

Say why you think you’re the best trucker on the road

Show your patriotism

Tell them why you’re not the “stereotypical” truck driver

If you think you’ve got what it takes to win, hurry and get all your information ends. The application deadline is May 21, 2012.  Best of luck to you!
