On May 18-19th, the 2018 WI Truck Driving Championships were held at Fox Valley Technical College in Appleton, WI. Day one of the competition started off with a driver’s meeting and then the 50 question written exam was taken. Sixty-one drivers competed this year in 8 different classes of competition. On the second day of competing, the drivers tackled pre-trip and the skills course.
