2019 Truck Driving Championships
June 8-9, 2019
The Minnesota Truck Driving Championships (TDC) is a two-day competition for professional truck drivers from MTA member companies across Minnesota. Encourage your drivers to register!
The top four drivers from each class, upon conclusion of the Saturday, June 8 running, will compete in the finals on Sunday, June 9. The winners in each class will be announced at the banquet on Sunday, June 9 at 4:00 p.m. following the competition. One winner will be named the 2019 Grand Champion. First place winners will have the opportunity to represent Minnesota in the National Truck Driving Championships hosted by the American Trucking Association, August 14-17, 2019 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Drivers can register for the following categories: Straight Truck, 3-Axle Tractor-Semitrailer, 4-Axle Tractor-Semitrailer, 5-Axle Tractor-Semitrailer, 5-Axle Sleeper Berth Tractor-Semitrailer, Tank Truck, Flatbed, Twin Trailers, and Step Van. Companies may register a maximum of three drivers in each class of competition.
The event includes a written test, a pre-trip inspection, and a driving obstacle course. Drivers will drive equipment that is randomly selected and all efforts will be made to secure "like" equipment in each of the classes.
This family friendly event is open to the public. Please bring your family, friends, and work colleagues to cheer on the drivers. Companies with registered drivers are encouraged to bring spectator tents. Food truck concessions will be available throughout the weekend to contestants and spectators. All proceeds support the Minnesota Truck Driving Championships.
