Truck Driving Championship
Drivers from around the state compete in two phases: first, a written exam based on American Trucking Association’s Facts for Drivers; and second, in predetermined skills course exercises including stopping, backing, turning and serpentine maneuvers.
Drivers compete in multiple divisions:

- Four-axle tractor trailer
- Five-axle tractor trailer
- Sleeper berth
- Straight truck
- Step van
Winners in each division go on to the ATA National Trucking Driving Championship held in Columbus, OH August 16-19, 2023.
The Championship is open to any company that is domiciled in Michigan or whose driver resides in Michigan. The driver must also have an accident-free record from August 15, 2022 through August 15, 2023.*

Held in conjunction with the Truck Driving Championship, American Trucking Associations Technology & Maintenance Council’s (TMC) SuperTech is North America’s premier skills competition for professional commercial vehicle technicians. This event is part written exam, part hands-on skills challenges. Winners are eligible to compete in the TMC’s National Skills Competition held in the fall.
