A Look a Hunter Johnson, Pro Truck Leader

Hunter Johnson Ready for More after Opening Trucks Season with a Victory    By Chuck Corder  Hunter Johnson is driving down familiar Georgia backroads when his cell rings.  The 19-year-old Proxy Equipment Pro Trucks driver is headed to dinner with girlfriend Meagan after a long day at J-Cor Trailers Sales.
