ATS trained professional truck driver

Nothing so uniquely binds us together as humans than stories - especially stories with happy endings.  We love to hear them, and we love to read them.  We're happy to say we have one of those for you today, so please hear us out.  As the old adage goes, Once Upon a Time...

We have many professional truck drivers amongst our community.  We are proud to know that those hard working men and women appreciate our games and spend their precious free time playing our World of Trucks.

This time one of our fans embarked on a journey in the opposite direction - turning from just an average player of our games to becoming a real life professional.  Meet Dustin Kochara, certified truck driver!

Dustin sent us an email which has made us immensely proud:

"I currently have 197 hours logged into American Truck Simulator (loving every minute of it) your Trucking Simulators have been a huge inspiration in my Career choice, I Graduated truck driving school with a GPA of 3.6  'A' grade. I am now employed at Reddaway (A local truck driving company on the west coast of United States).

I probably would have not known that this was my dream job had i not first played your truck driving simulators, but here I am! And it's funny though, all my instructors I drove with said I was the best driver they have seen in a while, and the best of my class, I was able to nail the backing portion of my test in one to two shots, and was able to do the 90 degree backing in one shot on multiple occasions, even though I have never even been inside a Tractor before in my life, and in my mind, I know your teams creations have helped me.

So, I just wanted to say thank you and your team for opening my eyes and realizing my dream, and achieving it! Also, I get weekends off, so I can continue playing your amazing simulators!"

At the present time Dustin signed a contract with the Schneider company and will cross 11 western states with a 2012 Freightliner Cascadia.

We are very happy that with our projects we were able to contribute to Dustin's success.  We're wishing him good fortune and many miles of safe trucking across both the real and virtual west!
