The Spirit of the American Trucker – May 2016

Colton Nehring
Hubbard, Iowa

At only 21 years old, Colton Nehring drives this bright yellow and white 1978 A-model Kenworth that’s almost twice as old as he is! Being a third generation trucker, Colton’s grandpa and dad both drove big rigs, so trucking was in his veins from the beginning. Running mostly the Midwest these days, Colton has fond memories of riding around with his dad in the truck, hanging around the shop, and the first time he went to New York City. Talking about that trip, he said, “The way my dad had to navigate through there just had me mesmerized!” And the rest, as they say, is history!
