The Trucking Association of Massachusetts (TAM) is excited to announce the 2022 Massachusetts Truck Driving Championship. This year’s event will be held on Sunday, June 5 at the Advantage Truck Group facility in Shrewsbury.
We encourage you to bring family and friends to this event. This year’s field competition starts at 10 a.m. with the awards program scheduled to start around 3 p.m. (The driver roll call is set for 7:30 a.m. sharp.)
The registration fee is $100 per driver.
Those drivers who win their class at the state level will have the chance to compete at the national level. This year’s ATA Nationals will be held in Indianapolis, Indiana on August 16-20.
After the registration is submitted, monitor your inbox for an invoice. Payment can be made online via credit card or via check. Drivers will not be allowed to participate if the invoice is not paid prior to the event.
