If you think you drive a lot, you may want to think again after reading about an Alabama man’s odometer.

Trucker Richard Doggrell who works for Troy, Alabama, based Wiley Sanders Truck Lines, was recently honored for topping 5 million miles behind the wheel delivering the goods and supplies that Americans depend on.

Doggrell has been driving trucks for nearly 30 years. That includes working throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

“When I found out I had five million miles, I was surprised,” Doggrell said in a WSFA-TV article. “I didn’t know I had that many miles. I don’t feel like I had that many miles, but then sometimes I do, too.”
