National Truck Driving Championships Qualifying Underway

National Truck Driving Championships Qualifying Underway

American Trucking Associations has congratulated qualifiers for the 2017 National Truck Driving Championships, which take place August 9-12 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando.

Drivers compete for the title of National Champion in eight different classes, with one driver taking home the overall title of 2017 National Truck Driving Championships Bendix Grand Champion.

“The trucking industry comes together every spring and summer for a series of state truck driving championships culminating in the National Truck Driving Championships,” said ATA President and CEO Chris Spear. “ATA thanks all of the drivers and companies who made the commitment to participate in the competitions and we recognize your dedication to safety.”

Here’s the scoop: Professional truck drivers progress from their state truck driving championships to nationals, competing in eight classes of truck, and one step van class. They undergo a written examination that tests their knowledge of trucking facts, rules, statistics and safety protocols, look for defects as part of their pre-trip inspection, and complete a difficult driving course.

Several states hold truck driving championships in late June and early July.
