Duane Maroney, resident of Inver Grove Heights, MN and a professional truck driver with ABF Freight, took first place in the Twin Trailer Class at the Minnesota Truck Driving Championships on June 9. He now has the opportunity to compete at the National Truck Driving Championships, Aug. 14 through 17 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

 The Truck Driving Championships is a two-day competition featuring 89 of the state’s top drivers who had to navigate a six-problem obstacle course, complete a written knowledge test and perform a pre-trip inspection where they had to correctly identify safety defects planted on a tractor-trailer. 

The driver with the most points in each of the nine classes took home the first place prize along with the opportunity to compete at the National Truck Driving Championships. They will compete against more than 400 other drivers from across the country in a skills test, pre-trip inspection and a written exam.
