Local Man Wins State Bus Driving Competition, Heads To Nationals

A Fresno man competing in a statewide school bus driving competition on Sunday shared a first-place finish.

Phillip Cervantes, Jr. -- along with a bus driver from San Diego -- topped a field of 54 bus drivers in the 2013 State Championship Roadeo.

Nearly 45 school districts qualified for the competition, which was held in Galt, Calif.

Cervantes will now compete next February in Nashville to compete for the national championship.
