My name is Joey Hoeck. I’m 36 years old and I own this 2000 Model 379. I live in Central KY. I have been an owner operator since 2014 and have been through the ups and downs of the market. I come from a trucking family and some of my earliest memories are riding with my dad in a 1974 Pete 359. For many years, we would travel to the truck show in Louisville. I can remember as a kid my dad buying a headache rack and boxes at the show and us picking them up Sunday afternoon when the show ended.
I still have the trucking bug to this day! I haul heavy oversized freight with my truck and mainly run east of the Mississippi River. My overall dream has come true and that is owning my own Peterbilt truck and getting to work along-side my dad.
Thank you guys for what you all do for the trucking industry and educating the drivers!
