The road to the National Truck Driving Championships may be different this year, but we are still celebrating professional truck drivers for their hard work and professionalism.
To showcase their knowledge and skill, we are joining other state trucking associations by participating in the American Trucking Associations’ Battle of the States Virtual Truck Driving Championships, a two-phase virtual trivia contest where participants compete first at the state level on July 31, 2021, and then ten top finishers move on to compete at the national competition on August 14 for a chance to win some great prizes!
Alabama Contestant Requirements
- Be a full-time truck driver with a valid CDL
- Have at least one year of employment with an ATA member company.
- Be accident-free (regardless of fault) from August 23, 2020.
- Your company must be domiciled or have a terminal in Alabama.
- Contestants must not receive any form of pay, bonus, or remuneration for participating, but they can be reimbursed for expenses incurred.
To register as a contestant, please CLICK HERE. The deadline to enter is July 14, 2021. Register as many of your drivers as you want so long as they meet the above criteria.
What To Expect
Our contest happens Saturday, July 31 at 6 p.m. CST with a 45 to 60-minute trivia test consisting of 40 questions derived from federal regulations, state laws, Alabama Trucking history and culture, and the Facts for Drivers handbook (which will be mailed to contestants at no cost once the ATA staff receives your registration information). We will administer the test with Kahoot!, a game-based learning platform that can be accessed via a web browser or with the Kahoot! app.
The state contest is FREE for any driver from an ATA member firm in good standing. There may be fees for the national competition, so please carefully read their requirements CLICK HERE.
