Nash says he is an honoured to receive the award and thanked his family, friends and award sponsors.

"The Craig Roseneder Award is an important part of the National Trucking Industry Awards, and I feel grateful to have been considered for it," he says.

As well as a trophy from award sponsor Castrol, Nash receives a scholarship to attend the American Trucking Associations’ Maintenance Council meeting in early 2011 and $1500 in spending money.

"As a member of the ATA’s Industry Technical Council, Graham has been actively working to improve the safety of the trucking industry," he says.

Nash competed against Bunker trailer fleet manager Chris Gass and Mitchell Corporation maintenance and asset manager Rob Hodges.
