2018 Truck Driving Championship held April 7th

Despite the unseasonably cold temperatures, 41 drivers from across the Southeast gathered at Thompson Tractor Company on Saturday, April 7th, to compete in the 2018 Truck Driver Championship. The event is held each year to thank these men and women for all the hard work they do for our industry.

Thank you to Thompson for hosting once again! It was another successful “Rodeo” enjoyed by the drivers, their family and friends.

We also want to thank all of our sponsors and volunteers who helped make the event possible!
