While the national competition to test and reward the skill's of this country's best truck drivers has once again been put on hold by the COVID-19 pandemic, organizers are staging a somewhat similar contest online.
Today, the American Trucking Associations invited drivers to participate in the 2021 National Battle of the States: Virtual Truck Driving Championships. The event will begin July 31 with state-level trivia contests based on Facts for Drivers, federal and state laws, state trucking history, and culture. That leads to the national competition that takes place Aug. 14 with the National Battle of the States.
"Our industry has braved the front-line, providing essential services and delivering goods to American households throughout the nation in the fight against COVID-19. It's yet another reason to celebrate our industry heroes – truck drivers," said ATA President and CEO Chris Spear. "The National Battle of the States: Virtual Truck Driving Championships will provide our industry an opportunity to recognize the best of the best in our industry.
"NTDC is annually one of the highlights of the ATA calendar, and we are very happy to bring the 'Super Bowl of Safety' back in this virtual format," Spear said.
