National Truck Driving Championships 2011
What are you going to do now that you’ve finished 1st in your state truck driving championship? “I’m going to Disneyland!”
That famous phrase is what 115 of our skilled FedEx drivers are screaming out now that each one of them has captured their state’s championship title. This title qualifies them to compete in the National Truck Driving Championships (NTDC).
A driver must be accident-free for one year and hold all licensure for their class of truck to be eligible for competition. Drivers are tested in three areas: current rules and regulations, a pre-trip inspection and driving skills course. They must also compete against other drivers in their state and win 1st place to move on to the NTDC.
In July, our champions voluntarily participate in a local competition called the Chairman’s Challenge Competition and Celebration, or better known as the 4C. It’s here they meet the rest of the national team, compete against other drivers in their class and prepare for the NTDC.
The NTDC will be held in Orlando, FL, August 9 – 13, and we know our FedEx National Team will make us all proud.
This video gives you a glimpse of what our champions do to prepare for the NTDC and become safer drivers on the roads they travel every day.
