National championship that will take place in Cleveland, Ohio, in September

Cookeville –  Averitt Express mechanic Jeremiah Carter is in elite company after recently winning the Tennessee Trucking Association’s Technician Skills Competition.

With the victory, Carter has qualified for the national championship that will take place in Cleveland, Ohio, in September. On his way to first place, Carter earned the highest score in three categories – engines, coolants and fasteners. The event featured 12 total categories ranging from a written test to hands-on testing of transmissions, electrical systems, brakes and more.

“It felt good to represent Averitt because Averitt has some of the best equipment on the road,” Carter said. “And it felt good to prove that there’s a reason we have the best equipment on the road.”

Carter began his Averitt career in 2014, and this year’s TTA Technician Skills appearance was his second. Last year, he finished second overall. Averitt’s Cookeville-area service center is located at 1199 Salem Road and its headquarters is at 1415 Neal Street.
