Rookie, Fred Leverette, has been trucking for years, but has only recently begun hauling oversized and dangerous loads. This has lead to many fights with Tim. Fred feels like he's ready for bigger, better, and higher paying loads, where Tim sees a guy who still needs to work his way up the ladder.
Fred drives with his family in mind every day. In 2008, one of Fred's sons died of complications from childhood diabetes, creating an ever present understanding of mortality and a pressure to be the best and safest driver he can be.
