YRC Freight Sends 19 Drivers to the 2017 National Truck Driving Championships
To qualify for the NTDC, drivers must first take top honors by class in their respective state competitions, maintain continuous employment with a motor carrier fleet for a period of at least one year, and remain accident-free, regardless of fault, for one year prior to NTDC.
