Truck Drivers from each of the fifty (50) states, U.S. Territories, Canada, and Mexico converged last week in Minneapolis, Minnesota to compete in the National Truck Driving Championship.
To qualify and compete, drivers must showcase their knowledge and skills by placing first in their home-State or Regional competition. More importantly, competitors are required to be accident-free for at least twelve (12) months.
We, at Nurenberg Paris, want to commend and congratulate our Ohio competitors for qualifying and competing on the National stage:
To be the National Champ, drivers must pass written exams to demonstrate their knowledge of safety regulations. By performing a live demonstration of a pre-trip safety inspection, drivers look to ensure the truck they are driving has safe equipment. Specifically, drivers move around the truck to look for safety violations and identify defects that are deliberately planted by the judges.
Driving skills are tested to demonstrate a driver’s skill for safe maneuverability through numerous obstacle courses within a designated time period.
Altogether, this is a great opportunity for truck drivers and their employers to continue the dialogue regarding the importance of safe, skilled and accident-free truck driving.
