In its sophomore year, HDA Truck Pride’s Top Tech Competition brought in twice the applications and a new round of finalists to advance to the hands-on competition. Debuting in 2018, the Top Tech Competition features a 60-question written exam which is completed remotely. With the scores tallied, the top six technicians will advance to compete in the Maryland Motor Truck Association’s (MMTA) hands-on competition.
