Echo: Truck Drivers Compete

Did you know the National Truck Driving Championship is going on right now? Did you even know there was such a competition?

More than 400 truck drivers compete in different classes, and an overall winner is determined. The competition started with a written exam on Thursday, followed by showing their driving skills on a course over a three-day period. All drivers are accident-free for the year and won their state competitions.

The NTDC is being held through Aug. 15 at the America’s Center Convention Complex and Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis.
