YORK, Neb. -- May 19, 2014

In recognition of the achievements of professional Werner driver Charley
Endorf, an unveiling ceremony was held May 17 to rename the I-80 and exit 353
Petro Stopping Centers in York, Neb., in his honor. Endorf earned the
distinction as a recipient of the 2014 Citizen Driver Award, a program
presented by TravelCenters of America/Petro that recognizes professional
long-haul drivers who inspire public respect and admiration for the truck
driving profession.

“Today, we honor Charley’s status as a Citizen Driver by showcasing his name
on two places of the building, not just for a year or six months or a day, but
forever as the Charley Endorf York Stopping Center,” said Greg Frary, director
of Fleet Maintenance Support for TravelCenters of America/Petro.

Selected for his exemplary citizenship in the driving community, personal and
professional leadership, community involvement and commitment to lead a
healthy lifestyle, Endorf accepted the Citizen Driver Award at the 2014
Mid-America Trucking Show March 27-29 in Louisville, Ky. As a result, Endorf,
presented with the choice of any TA or Petro location nationwide renamed in
his honor, chose the Petro Stopping Centers location in York, Neb., nearest
his hometown of Fairbury, Neb. A Werner driver and owner operator since 1976,
Endorf is the only Werner driver, and one of only a few in the industry’s
history, to achieve the milestone of 5 million safe driving miles.

“Charley is a great inspiration to everybody he comes in contact with,” said
Fairbury Mayor Homer Ward. “If our town had a few more Charley Endorfs,
there’s nothing we couldn’t accomplish.”
