Congratulations to Eric Ramsdell, Walmart Transportation, Buckeye, AZ for winning 1st place in the Flatbed Division at the 2022 National Truck Driving and Step Van Competition (NTDC) hosted by the American Trucking Associations in Indianapolis, IN.
This is Eric’s second NTDC title. In 2015, Ramsdell won a national title in the 5-Axle Division.
This year’s NTDC featured 408 competitors from all around the country. Together, these champions of safety have driven nearly 730 million combined accident-free miles.
In their respective classes, drivers tested their expertise in the driving skills they use daily. The competition course 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.
Congratulations to all of team Arizona for making it to the National Truck Driving Championships in Indianapolis. We are very proud of you. Also, we’d like to thank all of our volunteers and sponsors who make the truck driving championship possible.
