The TDC Planning Committee has finalized plans for the Truck Driving Championships to be held at the Tacoma site of Reddaway located at 802 E 11th St, Tacoma, WA 98421. The event will be held on Saturday, June 23, 2018, starting at 7am.


 Drivers will compete to see whose industry knowledge and skills outpaces the competition. Participants in the Truck Driving Championships will take a written test, perform a pre-trip inspection, and navigate a driving course designed to push their driving skills to the limit. On Saturday afternoon the champions will be celebrated at an awards ceremony with members of the WTA leadership, the Safety Management Council leadership.
