Professional West Virginia truck drivers will test their driving skills and knowledge of the trucking industry during the West Virginia Trucking Association's annual Truck Driving Championship. Forty-seven drivers are to compete in the Truck Driving Championship. The companies that will be participating in the competition are XPO Logistics, Walmart Transportation, ABF Freight System, UPS Freight, FedEx, Pitt Ohio, Winjean Trucking and Pilot Thomas Logistics. The event will be held this Saturday, June 17th, at the Winjean Trucking Company, located at 183 Airport Road in Buckhannon, WV.

The best time to experience the driving competition will be between 11:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

The Truck Driving Championships (TDC) is designed to promote safety in the trucking industry. Each driver has a chance to demonstrate his or her driving skill and knowledge of the trucking industry through a series of tests. The drivers are given a written examination, pre-trip inspection test and finally the most visible - the field test.

Drivers will compete for a chance to go to the American Trucking Associations' National Truck Driving Championship taking place in Orlando, FL, August 9 – 12, 2017.

The Association will also be presenting annual safety awards, which include the "Driver of the Year" and the "State Police Safety Award" tributes, at a dinner following the competition.

Come out and support our local drivers!
