Congratulations to Eric Ramsdell, Walmart Transportation, Buckeye, AZ for winning 1st place in the 5-Axle class this year at the National Truck Driving and Step Van Competition hosted by the American Trucking Associations.

This year’s NTDC featured 431 competitors from all 50 states, representing 85 different companies. Together, these champions of safety have driven more than 665 million accident-free miles.

In their respective classes, drivers tested their expertise in the driving skills they use daily. The competition course inside the America’s Center Convention Complex and Edward Jones Dome (St. Louis, MO) challenged their knowledge of safety, equipment and the industry. The skills course tested drivers’ ability to judge distances, maneuver tight spaces, reverse, and position their vehicle exactly over scales, before barriers or around curves.
