American Trucking Associations this week announced it seeks nominations for professional drivers to serve on the 2022-2023 America’s Road Team.
Every two years, ATA searches for professional drivers with superior skills and strong safety records who are willing to take time away from the cab to demonstrate the trucking industry’s commitment to safety. Due to the pandemic, American Trucking Associations postponed the selection process of the newest class of America’s Road Team Captains until now.
ATA members are encouraged to nominate professional truck drivers who exhibit strong interpersonal skills, have impressive safety records, and demonstrate a positive attitude toward the industry and their careers as professional truck drivers. Nominations for the 2022-2023 class of America’s Road Team are due September 10.
ATA will also consider nominations received in 2020 for the 2022-2023 team. To nominate a professional truck driver for America’s Road Team, complete the nomination form. For additional questions go to americasroadteam.com.
Finalists will be announced Nov. 8, with the final selection taking place in January 2022.
“For 35 years, America’s Road Team has represented the best professional truck drivers in the industry,” said ATA President and CEO Chris Spear. “This diverse group of Captains is great ambassadors for our industry, representing all segments of trucking and every region of the country. We look forward to continuing the tradition of having dedicated, passionate and safe drivers educate America about our essential and powerful industry.”
Founded in 1986, America’s Road Team, a group of skilled professional truck drivers with outstanding safety records, promote the trucking industry by educating the general public, media, and elected officials about the industry’s strong safety record, importance to the economy, and what a great career option the trucking industry is.
“Volvo Trucks North America is looking forward to the nineteenth year as the exclusive sponsor of America’s Road Team and their Captains with a fully equipped Volvo VNL 760,” said Magnus Koeck, vice president of marketing and brand management, Volvo Trucks North America. “As Captains, these men and women are leaders who set the example for best-in-class driving, and their outstanding safety records complement the Volvo Trucks brand.”
