Started in 1937 to spotlight the skills of the trucking industry’s top drivers, the competition you will see today is designed to select all-around champions who are more than just good drivers. The participants have spent many additional hours learning about their industry. They have studied the principles and regulations pertinent to safe driving and the facts of first aid and firefighting.
To be eligible, a driver must have at least one year of driving experience and one year of totally accident-free driving. Of course, most of the drivers entered have many years and many miles without accidents and represent Wisconsin’s finest professionals.
