While the road to ATA’s National Truck Driving Championships may be different this year, we are still recognizing and celebrating our industry heroes – truck drivers.

The Minnesota Trucking Association will be participating in this year’s Battle of the States virtual knowledge competition on July 31, where you’ll have the opportunity to participate in the state competition, compete to be named the National Battle of the States: Virtual Truck Driving Grand Champion, and win great prizes!

Our 45-60 minute state-level trivia contests will be based on Facts for Drivers, federal and state laws, state trucking history and culture and will lead to the National Battle of the States.

 

To qualify for the August 14 Grand Championship, you must place in the top 10 of your state's competition, as you would for a live NTDC.
