The winners of the truck driving championship will move on to compete in the National Truck Driving Championship in Indianapolis, Indiana in August. TXTA will recognize the winners of the truck driving championships at the Safety and Maintenance Awards Luncheon taking place at TXTA’s Annual Conference on July 28.

The 2022 ATA National Truck Driving Championships will take place August 16–20 in Indianapolis, Indiana. Competition at the national level will include the first place winners in each class of competition from the state championships. ATA qualification rules for nationals must be met.

The Truck Driving Championships are a project of the TXTA Safety Management Council (SMC), the local Safety Councils and TXTA Fleet Maintenance Council (FMC) that seek to promote safety and professionalism among commercial drivers. Three regional championships and one statewide championship are held in the spring with drivers qualifying for national competition. Drivers are tested on their ability to maneuver and control their vehicles under a number of difficult test situations.

Congratulations Team Texas 2022!
