Million Mile DriversSteve Kline and Ronnie Gilliam recently became the 20th and 21st Brookshire Grocery Company truck drivers, respectively, to achieve 1 million miles without a preventable accident – a feat which on average takes BGC drivers about 10 years to accomplish.

A BGC truck driver since 2000, Kline hit the million-mile mark November 4th near Gladewater, Texas. He has represented the company on several occasions at regional and state truck driving competitions and is a former East Texas regional 3-axle class Grand Champion.

With more than 35 years of truck driving experience, and 12 of those being at BGC, Gilliam surpassed the million-mile mark December 19th in Marshall, Texas. He competed in 2012 at the Texas State Truck Driving Championship and has represented BGC on several occasions at the East Texas Regional Truck Driving Championship, including in 2012 when he won first place in the 4-axle competition.
