History was made Saturday night in Fort Worth, Texas, at the annual UPT Awards Weekend! Richard Rodriguez became the first ever two-time, back-to-back winner of the coveted UPT Driver of the Year award. Surrounded by his nominated peers and a number of UPT representatives, Richard was shocked, humbled, and proud to receive this recognition. Richard works out of our Tulsa CSC, has been an exceptional representative for United Petroleum Transports for over six years, and is currently a Grand Master driver. Richard is committed to safe performance and seamless customer service and always has a smile on his face. We congratulate Richard on this historic achievement.
