2015 NTDC Wrap-Up


On August 11-15, 2015 the America's Center in St. Louis housed 431 of the nation's very best professional drivers as well as over 2,000 family members and friends for the 2015 National Truck Driving Championships (NTDC) hosted by the American Trucking Associations (ATA). This year marked the event's 78th anniversary!

At the end of the national competition, Holland professional driver Scott Donaldson secured a Top 5 finish in the 4-axle category. Scott qualified to compete at NTDC after finishing first in the 4-axle category at the 2015 GA Truck Driving Championships. He was part of the 7-man Holland team who took home the "Large Team Award" at the 2015 GA state competition.

Scott has been driving professionally for 29 years and has driven for Holland over the past 16 years. He works as a linehaul driver out of our Atlanta, GA service center, logging around 700 miles per week on a route through NE GA. On the road 5 days a week, Scott racks up about 28,000 miles every month.

The drivers who qualify for NTDC have achieved an impressive feat in and of itself--drivers must be safety conscious and collision-free for an entire year to compete at state level, then earn the championship of their class at state level to make it to NTDC. 

We would like to also congratulate Holland NTDC competitor, Russ Simpson (Columbus, OH), for his strong and skillful showing in the Tanker class. This was his third time to compete at the national level, having participated in the NTDC in 2008 and 2013.

Widely referred to as the "Super Bowl of Safety," the NTDC is the premier stage for competitive truck driving. Professionals put their skills and knowledge to the test against the best of the best drivers in the field.  

As ATA President and CEO Bill Graves said, "All the competitors who took part...are champions...of safety on our highways and of our industry's image."

We at Holland feel that honor extends to all of the dedicated professionals who took part in state competitions this year. A total of 71 Holland professional drivers competed this year from 14 states. Team Holland took home a total of 9 top-three trophies from 4 different states and 3 Team Awards! Team Holland has collected 69 top-three TDC trophies since 2004.

We would like to thank all of our hardworking and dedicated Holland professionals who participated this year. Your commitment to safety makes Holland a better company and our highways safer for everyone. We look forward to 2016!
