America's Road Team - 2005-2006 - Ralph Garcia
Ralph Garcia is an ABF Road Driver from Albuquerque, N.M. His excellent driving record and good attitude about his company and his profession set an example for all professional drivers. Helping others is important to Ralph, and he carries that philosophy into his work arena. "We used to be known as 'knights of the highway.' We stopped and took the time to help or simply acted courteously out on the highway as we drove. I believe ABF is so successful because we have people who want to make a difference and care about other people."
Garcia has accumulated more than two million accident-free miles during his 27 years as a professional driver. His record as a professional truck driver includes membership in the ABF Road Team, six New Mexico State Truck Driving Championship titles, various safe-driving awards, and Sysco Foods' Driver of the Year. A nationally recognized powerlifter, he is a member of the National Strength Athletics Association. He was instrumental in opening a home for underprivileged children in his area. Ralph also is active in his church where he serves as a deacon.
