Truck Driving Championships and Technician Competition
In-Person TDC and TechComp Cancelled for 2021
In light of the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on mass gatherings, the Ohio Trucking Association and event steering committee have made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person 2021 Truck Driving Championships and Technician Competition. Additionally, American Trucking Associations has also cancelled the in-person 2021 National Truck Driving Championships. Ohio and Nationals will be hosting a virtual event. Learn more here.
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.
