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.

The 2018 TA Truck Service Challenge season includes the following competitions:

Atlanta Motor Speedway – Thursday, February 22, 2018

Texas Motor Speedway – Thursday, April 5, 2018

Sonoma Raceway – Thursday, June 21, 2018

Kentucky Speedway – Thursday, July 12, 2018

Las Vegas Motor Speedway – Thursday, September 13, 2018

Charlotte Motor Speedway – Thursday, September 27, 2018

“Every item at the race, from the race cars to the bottles of water at the concession stands are transported by a truck driven by a highly skilled professional,” said Barry Richards, president and COO of TravelCenters of America. “We are honored to recognize the transport drivers and the valuable role they play in the racing series.”

The TA Truck Service Challenge is free and open to race enthusiasts holding the proper credentials, and all NASCAR fans can visit the TA Truck Service and Goodyear booth in the Fan Zone throughout the weekend. Follow each of the competitions and see the winners at www.tatruckchallenge.com.
