Over 50 Drivers to compete in Truck Driving Championship on Saturday.
Professional West Virginia tractor-trailer operators will test their driving skills and knowledge of the trucking industry during the West Virginia Trucking Associationâ€™s annual Truck Driving Championship, to be held from 7:00 a.m. â€“ 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 23 at the Charleston Civic Center.
The Truck Driving Championships (TDC) is designed to promote safety in the trucking industry.

The drivers are given a written examination, personal interview, pre-trip inspection test and finally the most visible - the field test.
Drivers will compete for a chance to go to the American Trucking Associationsâ€™ National Truck Driving Championship â€“ also known as the Super Bowl of Safety â€“ taking place in Minneapolis August 7-11, 2012.
Beginning at 6:30 p.m. Saturday evening, the organization will host a banquet at the Civic Center to present the driving competition and annual safety awards, which include the â€śDriver of the Yearâ€ť and the â€śState Police Safety Awardâ€ť tributes.
