Truck Driving Championships and Technician Competition

In light of the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 and its impact on our industry and families, the Ohio Trucking Association and the TDC/TechComp Steering Committee have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Truck Driving Championships (TDC) and Technician Competition (TechComp). Additionally, ATA has cancelled the 2020 National Truck Driving Championships.

About the Truck Driving Championships and Technician 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 education, 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, drivers and technicians will be celebrated during the Awards Banquet. Each participant will receive 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 and the TDC driving course is open to the public.

Competition Location:
