State Champions Preparing for 2017 National Truck Driving Championships

The 2017 National Truck Driving Championships, the 80th running of the event, will take place Aug. 9-12 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando.

The American Trucking Associations is counting down to the 2017 National Truck Driving Championships, the 80th running of the event that will take place Aug. 9-12 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando. Several states have held truck driving championships this month, with at least one more set in July.

"The trucking industry comes together every spring and summer for a series of state truck driving championships, culminating in the National Truck Driving Championships," said ATA President and CEO Chris Spear. "ATA thanks all of the drivers and companies who made the commitment to participate in the competitions and we recognize your dedication to safety."

Professional truck drivers advance from their state truck driving championships to nationals, competing in eight classes of truck and one step van class. They undergo a written examination, look for defects as part of their pre-trip inspection, and complete a driving course. At the championships in Orlando, drivers will compete for the title of National Champion in eight different classes, with one driver taking home the overall title of 2017 National Truck Driving Championships Bendix Grand Champion and one driver awarded National Rookie of the Year.
