In order to make his way to the Texas competition, he placed first at the San Antonio regional.

Given the size of the state, Texas is one of a few states that conducts regional qualifiers.

2019 Preview

When: May 31 - June 1, 2019

Where: Waco, Texas

Field: Seventy-two truck drivers are expected to compete in nine categories.

Preview: It has been a long road for participants in the Texas Truck Driving Championships, but this weekend they will finally head to the state tournament to show off their skills. The competition will be held May 31-June 1 by the Texas Trucking Association at Texas State Technical College in Waco.

Everything is bigger in Texas, and the state competition is no exception. Due to the number of drivers and companies in the Lone Star State, Texas holds four regional competitions before the state championships to whittle down the field to the best of the best.

2018 Recap

Cirrincione

The top trucker out of the Lone Star state last year was Michael Cirrincione of FedEx Freight. Competing in the 3-Axle, Cirrincione took home the Grand Champion trophy at the Texas Truck Driving Championships to secure a spot in the national tournament.

“It felt overwhelming,” Cirrincione said about his victory. “I’ve done states three times, and I didn’t do so well the other two times. So this time I didn’t expect to do well, but it was just a good day.” The secret to a successful showing at states was to remain focused on the course. For Cirrincione, a driver with 25 years of experience, the tournament in Columbus, Ohio, was his debut on the national stage.
