Can I still get a trucking job after 2 DUI's?

I am an Illinois driver with eight years of OTR experience prior to 1996. In 1996 I received two DUI's. As a result my license was revoked.
While attempting to get to other employment, I was pulled over in my personal vehicle; not once, but four times. I have been and still am a safe driver. In fact, I've received two safety awards from top trucking companies.
My driving privileges have been reinstated and I have taken a refresher course. At this point, I've been turned down by countless companies in Illinois and Indiana.
Is there any company out there that will give a good, safe driver a second chance?
