The 2024 Sheetz CLI Transport Ohio Truck Driving Championships (TDC) and Technician Competition (TechComp), presented by PrePass Safety Alliance, was held on Friday, May 17 and Saturday, May 18 at the Kalahari Resorts & Conventions in Sandusky. 235 drivers took a written test, performed a pre-trip inspection, and navigated a driving course designed to push their skills to the limit. Ultimately, Jeff Pentrack of DHL Supply Chain was named the 2024 Michael Hathaway Memorial Trophy Grand Champion. 20 technician competitors took a written test, participated in educational training, and completed ten hands-on stations designed to test their knowledge of truck maintenance. Carl Diehl of Hogan Truck Leasing took the Grand Champion honors for the Technician Competition. Thank you to the volunteers, sponsors, competitors, and attendees who helped make this event a success!
