This is your opportunity to participate in one of the best events of the year between the trucking industry and the law enforcement!
Through our partnership with the Arizona Department of Public Safety, ATA is able to observe roadside inspections during this nationwide detail. This is a perfect opportunity for owners, management staff, safety coordinators, technicians or other operational personnel to see first hand how inspections are done on a daily basis. You will learn how to improve your practices to become safer truckers and/or gain first hand knowledge of the inspection process regarding truckers.
Our Carrier and Allied members are encouraged to attend, but you must sign up in advance!

The Arizona Trucking Association (ATA) is excited to announce that we are hosting a special upcoming event to show appreciation for our professional truck drivers. The event is called battle of the states and the top 10 finishers will win cash prizes and qualify for the national “Battle of the States”. The competition will be a “Trucker Knowledge Competition” and it will be held virtually on Saturday, July 31st at 4:00 pm (AZ Time). While that might seem like an odd time to host an event, we are coordinating our efforts with many other state trucking associations around the country to hold similar competitions on the same night and at the same time – from Maine to Hawaii.
The concept is simple. We have subscribed to the quiz-show online platform called Kahoot to test professional drivers on their knowledge of trucking regulations, state-specific trucking details and we will also toss in some general trucking trivia to keep things interesting. Participants will register through the ATA to compete for cash prizes with entry requirements being very similar to those wishing to compete in our TDC. Again, the top 10 qualified finishers will also be eligible to compete at a similar national event hosted by the American Trucking Associations on August 14th.
This is meant to be a fun event for drivers, especially those who have missed the camaraderie and competition of the past two TDC’s. Part of this fun will be to compete for a number of significant cash prizes, thanks to the unbelievable generosity of the ATA Sponsors. Please take the time to see the list of sponsors who have made this possible at the bottom of this page. The deadline to register is July 23, 2021 by 5:00pm.
Fri05Nov2021Mon08Nov2021Front Sight - Pahrump, NVSpend a Weekend at Front Sight Gun Training Resort, in Nevada, and Leave with the Skills to Safely Protect Yourself and Your Family.
About this event
For the past three winters a group of ATA members, and their friends, have traveled to Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, in Nevada, for four days of rifle and pistol training. These trips have been very educational and improved the firearm skills for everyone who has attended.
The trip also provides an exceptional opportunity to build friendships and bond with others in the industry. Those who chose to attend have the option of staying in a hotel in either Las Vegas or Pahrump, NV, but the majority of the attendees pack up a travel trailer, RV, or a tent and dry camp right outside the facility around a large campfire.
We want to invite you all to join us at Front Sight this year. Attendees will have the option of taking either the four day defensive pistol or the four day tactical shotgun class starting on Friday, November 5, 2021. (Note: Classes start early, so we will travel up on Thursday, November 4.)
I have 50 guess passes that allow one person to attend a four day class or allow two people to attend a two day class. These passes have a $2,000 face value, but I will be donating them and selling them off for $250 per pass. All proceeds will go to support the Arizona Transportation Education Foundation (ATEF). That's right, all proceed go to support ATEF.
Existing Front Sight members can attend for free. If you are an existing Front Sight member we want you to join us as well. You will have the option of attending the pistol class; the shotgun glass; or with the appropriate membership, you can sign up for the four day rifle marksman class. Existing members and guests, please be sure to sign up so we know you will be attending.
Please note: 1) you must be able to pass Front Sight's background check to attend classes. Please see course descriptions and requirements here four day defensive pistol requirements and four day tactical shotgun requirements. 2) There will be no refunds once the guest pass has been transferred to your account.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly at tbradley at aztrucking.com.
