2015 Truck Driving Championship Photos & Results
This year’s Connecticut Truck Driving Championship was held on June 13 at New England Tractor Trailer Training School. It was a great turnout and mother nature cooperated by providing warm, sunny weather. More than 150 people attended the event and everyone cheered on this year’s competitors.
After a long day of competition, it was great that participants, family, friends and colleagues were able to kick back, relax, and enjoy themselves with a catered barbeque from the Outback Steakhouse and live music from the band Room to Move.
The winners of this competition represent the best in the state. To achieve this position, drivers must maintain a superior driving record, demonstrate safe driving practices, have a solid understanding of their vehicle and the rules and regulations governing the industry, and demonstrate professionalism as they travel our roadways.
