UTAH STATEHOOD CELEBRATION, WAGON WHEEL ANIMATION, PIONEERS 1890’S MUSIC This is Utah’s centennial year, celebrating a long journey to statehood that began with the creak of a wagon wheel and courageous pioneer spirit. This is the same spirit that guides you, the motor carrier industry of today.
OLD TRUCKS, MODERN TRUCKS MUSIC CHANGES In Utah’s 100 year adventure since statehood, motor carriers have seen a transformation from primitive relics to modern transportation masterpieces.
FACTORIES, STORES, COMMODITIES   During this growth, the industry has forged vital links in the chain of distribution and commerce. So that now, almost everything we wear, eat, use or buy, has been transported by a truck.
UTAH WITH WORLD INSET, TRUCK WITH WORLD INSET   You are part of this industry that has brought the best of the world to Utah, and the best of Utah to the world. And so tonight we want to express our deepest gratitude and respect, and shine the spotlight of recognition upon you.
FACES OF EMPLOYEES   We honor YOU: The transportation professionals of Utah who have dedicated your lives to excellence, service and safety.
TITLES: DRIVERS OF THE MONTH -- UTAH TRUCK DRIVING CHAMPIONSHIPS (SUPERED ON RED GEL) MUSIC UP THEN CHANGES The first honors tonight go to the 36 drivers of the month, and the 24 State Driving Champions who competed with 74 other drivers.

PIONEERS AND WAGONS, TRUCKERS WITH TRUCKS MUSIC UP SEVERAL SECONDS, THEN UNDER No one understood the broad expanse of this great country better than the pioneers who walked across it. And today, no one understands the vast scale of our nation better than the men and women of the transportation industry.
OLD UTAH PHOTOS, SLC SKYLINE, OLD TRUCKS   Carved from a stark wilderness, Utah has made the journey from a struggling sanctuary to become a beacon to the world. This achievement is due, in a large part, to the pioneers of the transporation industry.
TRUCKS IN BIG CITIES AND ON FREEWAYS, LARGE CITIES   A thriving transportation industry is the lifeblood of our national economy. Without the ceaseless flow of traffic across our network of interstates, our great cities would be isolated hamlets, and our small towns starved for food and medicine.
TRUCKS ON FREEWAYS   The motor carrier industry knits the far-flung states, cities and towns of this sprawling continent into a unified whole, and brings us all together and makes us one.
SINGLE FACES AND GROUPS   Whether you are an owner, manager, driver, dispatcher, legislator, or highway patrolman, you have helped bring the world to our doorstep. And tonight we celebrate you, the members of the motor carrier industry.
