Meet MISSION MPG Winner Tom Landry

A longtime driver for PAM and a fuel-efficiency expert, Tom Landry won a 2013 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy — the Grand Prize awarded during 2012’s MISSION MPG competition.

Still driving for PAM, Tom remains one of the fleet’s most fuel-efficient drivers and is eligible to win a Honda four-wheeler in this year’s MISSION MPG Giveaway.

About Tom

Tom has been a professional truck driver since 1996. He started his career with Schneider and then drove for Continental Express and Pro Transportation before taking a job at McNeil Trucking.

Tom transitioned from McNeil to PAM Transport in 2003, making 2016 his thirteenth year with PAM Transport!

What’s he driving?

Tom currently drives a 2016 Freightliner Evolution.

His favorite thing about being a professional truck driver

Tom says, “I like to make my own decisions, be my own boss. As long as I’m delivering on time, no one bothers me. I like to make the decisions about when to start my day, when to end my day; proper planning lets me be very independent and that’s what I love about being a professional truck driver.”

About Tom’s family

Tom has been married to his wife Janeth since 1986. Tom and Janeth have three children: Krystle, Thomas, and Joy, along with one grandchild, Ian.


When Tom is not driving, he enjoys spending time at home, playing with his dogs, riding around on his four-wheeler, and mowing the lawn.

Fuel tip

Tom says, “The secret to good fuel efficiency is cruising at 62 MPH. I can’t control the wind, I can’t control the weight of my load, but I can control my speed. Anyone can do that — there’s no reason why every driver can’t be fuel efficient. If I can do it, anyone can do it.”

This Year’s MISSION MPG Giveaway

This year’s MISSION MPG live drawings will be held during a company-wide cookout at PAM headquarters in Tontitown, Ark., on Friday, April 8, 2016 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.
