FedEx driver Mike Ortiz chats with The Show's Lauren Gilger.

Have you ever thought about spending a lot of time behind the wheel? How about driving 450,000 miles behind the wheel?

That’s how much Arizona FedEx driver Mike Ortiz has driven — all without ever being in an accident.

Because of his impeccable driving, he has earned a spot to compete in the National Truck Driving Championships starting Wednesday in Columbus, Ohio.

The competition involves both a written exam and driving skills challenge.

This will be the second time Ortiz has competed in the competition and, he says, it’s just more motivation to keep that clean driving record every time he gets behind the wheel.
