JUNE 15-17, 2023
OCEAN CENTER, DAYTONA BEACH
Registration for this event is now open
Florida Trucking Association hosts its annual Florida Truck Driving Championships (TDC) as an effort to recognize the best professional drivers in the state and allow them to competitively represent their companies. No matter what company you drive for, when you participate in TDC, we all come together as “One Team Florida” to represent the best in the state – and country. Class winners go on to the 2023 ATA National Competition in Columbus, Ohio.
TDC is open to the public and family-friendly. We encourage people to learn more about the trucking industry and watch some of the best professional truck drivers show off their skills at the Ocean Center. For groups interested in scheduling a tour or media inquiries, please contact Alix Miller at email@example.com
Step 1: Company managers should register their driver(s) for TDC via FTA's website (link below when launched).
Driver competition registration is $205/driver.
Late driver competition registration is $270/driver.
To compete at TDC, drivers must have a license and medical card that do not expire prior to June 19, 2023.
All company membership dues must be paid by May 31, 2023 to participate.
Please contact FTA if you need assistance with registering drivers or if your company requires an invoice.
Step 2: Following registration through FTA's website, company managers will receive an email from FTA staff the next business day on how to qualify their drivers via OpenWater.
Drivers must complete the TDC23 - TR 1-2 Driver Entry Form and submit it to their company managers. Managers will use this information to complete driver qualification.
BACK TO THE BEACH
There's fun for all ages in Daytona Beach! During the TDC Family Dessert event, drivers and their families are invited to grab an ice cream sundae and enjoy a starry night outside the Hilton Daytona Beach Oceanfront Resort. Historically, this hotel sells out, requiring overflow hotels, so book now!
