TravelCenters of America has announced its sponsorship of the 2018 TA Truck Service Challenge competition for the NASCAR Xfinity Series and NASCAR Monster Energy Cup Series professional transport drivers.

The TA Truck Service Challenge, conducted the day the transport haulers arrive at the track, tests the transport drivers’ skill behind the wheel as well as their knowledge of Department of Transportation (DOT) rules of the highway.

Each NASCAR team transport driver will compete in six competitions, earning points for both their driving skills in a driver course and their knowledge of DOT regulations in a written exam. A winner is named for each individual competition and will earn a $1,000 prize. At the end of the season, a Grand Champion will be crowned at the Charlotte Motor Speedway on Sunday, September 30, 2018. The first place driver will win $25,000, second place will win $10,000 and third place will win $5,000.
