Six Reddaway professional drivers have qualified to compete at the 2017 National Truck Driving Championships (NTDC). For the first time, three of the six competitors hail from the Reddaway Boise, Idaho service center. Dean Goodnight, Dan Istre and Drew Coulter all placed first in their respective classes at the Idaho Truck Driving Championships in May to earn their way to NTDC.

Our final three Reddaway competitors are Mike Elledge, Ryan Harris and John Van Buren.

The National Truck Driving Championships (Nationals) are held annually and are sponsored by the American Trucking Association (ATA). Competition consists of a driven skills challenge, pre-trip inspection, and a written exam on subjects such as laws, regulations and vehicle maintenance. This year’s event will include over 420 competitors, representing dozens of carriers, from across the United States.

To get there, drivers must be accident-free for one year before the event and place first in their state contest among other eligibility requirements. The NTDC challenges competitors’ driving skills and knowledge of truck safety in three ways: maneuverability test, pretrip inspection and written examination.

Beyond the competition, the NTDC also brings drivers and their families together for a special week of fellowship and company pride. That’s why most drivers who have attended say it’s one of the highlights of their careers.
