Shutterstock 2198000935Numerous truckers were recognized during 2022; some for their driving skills, some for their commitments to safety and their communities, and some for selfless acts to aid others. Still, others were singled out for their longevity and the many safe miles they have driven.

One of the highlights of the year was the return of the National Truck Driving Competition. After two years of having the competition sidelined by COVID-19, there was a full slate of state contests and the national event, which was held in person in Indianapolis.
