Truck Driving Championships and Technician Competition
Are You Ready to Demonstrate Your Company's Commitment to Safety?
Each year, the Ohio Trucking Association brings together a group of talented drivers and technicians to compete at the Truck Driving Championships and Technician Competition. Winners from these events have the opportunity to compete on the national stage at the ATA National Truck Driving Championships and the TMC SuperTech Competition.
Participants in the TDC take a written test that focuses on safety rules and regulations; perform a pre-trip inspection; and navigate a driving course designed to push their skills to the limit. Drivers can register for the following classes: 3-Axle, 4-Axle, 5-Axle, Flatbed, Sleeper, Step Van, Straight Truck, Tank Truck, or Twin Trailers.
Technicians competing in TechComp also take a written test; participate in two hours of educational sessions; and compete at nine stations designed to test their knowledge of truck maintenance. These stations include: brakes, electrical, engine diagnostics, fasteners, fifth wheel, HVAC, live engine, PMI, and tire and wheel.
On Saturday evening, the drivers and technicians are celebrated during the Awards Banquet. Each driver or technician receives one banquet ticket with their registration; additional tickets for spouses, family, or company representatives may be purchased. Everyone attending the banquet must have a ticket.
This is a family-friendly event open to public spectators.
