Truck Driving Championships and Technician Competition
The 2022 Event was a Huge Success!
The Ohio Trucking Association hosted the Truck Driving Championships and Technician Competition presented by PrePass Safety Alliance on May 20th and 21st at Kalahari Resorts in Sandusky, Ohio. Over 155 drivers competed in the championships, 40% of them were first time competitors. Scott Woodrome of FedEx Freight took home the Grand Championship trophy which has been renamed the Michael Hathaway Memorial Trophy. There were 15 competitors for the technician competition, where Josh Keiser of Clarke Power Service came out on top.
We want to give a huge thank you to all of the volunteers and sponsors that helped make this event a success after a two year break. We're excited to be back next year!
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 belts, brakes, electrical, engine diagnostics, fasteners, 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.
