The American Trucking Association has announced that its annual National Truck Driving Championship will be held virtually this year.
“Our industry has braved the front-line, providing essential services and delivering goods to American households throughout the nation in the fight against COVID-19. It’s yet another reason to celebrate our industry heroes – truck drivers,” said ATA President and CEO Chris Spear. “The National Battle of the States: Virtual Truck Driving Championships will provide our industry an opportunity to recognize the best of the best in our industry.”
The “virtual knowledge competition” is set to begin on July 31 with State Rounds, where trivia contests will test their knowledge on facts for drivers, federal and state laws, state trucking history, and culture.
The Prize Rounds will take place August 11-13 and the National Battle of the States competition will take place on August 14.
“NTDC is annually one of the highlights of the ATA calendar, and we are very happy to bring the ‘Super Bowl of Safety’ back in this virtual format,” Spear said.
