The Pennsylvania Motor Truck Association (PMTA) held their annual state truck driving championship on Friday, June 7th and Saturday, June 8th, 2019 at the Wyndham Garden Hotel in York PA. Drivers from across the state showed off their skills in various categories including 4-axle, 5-axle, flatbed, sleeper and twins. Local 776 was well represented at the championship with drivers from ABF, UPS, UPS Freight, and YRC on hand to show their skills. Unfortunately none of our drivers captured a state championship but they took pride in being in the company of the best of the best for two days of tough competition. Congratulations to all of the drivers who made it to the state championship event!
