The 2016 Missouri State Truck Driving Championships is right around the corner.  This year’s event will be held at the Ramada Plaza Hotel and Oasis Convention Center  in Springfield on June 3rd and 4th. The Course Competition will be held on the Prime, Inc. Training Lot nearby.

All participating drivers must be from member companies of the Missouri Trucking Association.

The event is sponsored by the Council of Safety Supervisors with a focus on safety and excellence. Participation in the Missouri State Truck Driving Championships not only challenges drivers during competition, it provides year-long motivation to excel in their professions and return to competition the following year. The result is a more focused and goal driven team.

Why not send your drivers to competition this year? The benefits for the individuals and companies who participate are long-lasting and contribute to even safer fleets, overall. While you’re at it why not send a message of encouragement to your drivers through the TDC event program, for all to see?

The first order of business is to complete the Intent of Entry form.  Complete, then fax or email to the MoTA office.  When this form is received we will send TDC shoulder patches and Facts for Drivers books so your drivers may prepare for the written exam.  Completion of this form is a big help in planning the event.

Next complete the rest of the forms and submit to the MoTA office.  The registration deadline to participate and to advertise is – May 5 – so don’t delay. Register your team members today!  The earlier they get registered the more time they have to study for the written exam!

Please note:  The hotel usually sells out quickly!

Again this year, there will be a Spouse Course Competition following the driver competition, a very popular part of recent events.
