Erik Tummelson always wanted to drive trucks when he was a kid. In 1989, Erik joined the U.S. Air Force and was a F-15 Crew Chief specializing in maintaining and servicing aircraft from all branches of the Military. Erik also coordinated aircraft with supplies and personnel for forces in Kuwait and Iraq during Desert Storm. He was honorably discharged in 1997.
After the military, Erik decided to go back to his dream as a kid and give trucking a try. In 2002, he joined Victory Leasing, which was later purchased by NAPA Transportation, Inc. (NAPA). Erik continues to drive for NAPA because he has time to spend with his son, go fishing, and tinker with engines and cars. Erik is celebrating 20 years with NAPA (via Victory Leasing) this year!
