It's been a long-time dream for a Washington state woman to compete in the National Truck Driving Championship.

Lisa Bry of Seattle drives an 18-wheeler for Boeing, and she just won the state truck driving competition. Bry beat 135 other competitors - most of them men - to earn this spot in the race.

With 28 years of driving under her belt, Bry challenges stereotypes about female drivers with her incredible record.

The national contest begins Aug. 6 in Minneapolis.
