Hey, Christopher:

If you want to do this thing, you need to learn some of the basic conventions.

You scene headings:


Quoted Text
EXT. DALLAS, TX HWY (EVENING)

Various views of downtown Dallas. White truck is seen driving
down highway towards downtown.

INT. TRUCK (EVENING)


Are in the incorrect format. Here's a good link:

https://www.storysense.com/format/headings.htm

Your character intros - e.g.,


Quoted Text
Daniel Proctor is driving and his daughter Jean is in the front
passenger seat. Classic rock is heard on the radio in the
background. Daniel is about 45 years old, brown hair, thin, and
has a pleasant demeanor. Jean is college-aged, has a fair
complexion and blonde hair.


Are improper.

Here is a link:

You're not getting any reads (my guess) because folks are seeing that you are making these basic mistakes out of the gate - do a little script format research, look at some other scripts and you will find that you will quickly get a handle on it.
