I’ll answer this as an American. Yes, as a Sikh you’ll probably experience more racism than an average south Asian man (most Americans will assume you’re Muslim). But the amount of racism will vary depending upon where you are and what you do. Urban areas will generally be more accepting.

Trucking, especially long-haul trucking has a mixed reputation. In the 50-60s they were considered ‘knights of the road’ and would regularly stop for stranded motorists etc. In the last 30 years or so this has shifted to the image of a ‘dirty trucker.’
