"SAFE & COURTEOUS" DRIVER AWARD to  Promote Safety and Courtesy 

The award program is open to all members of Midwest Truckers Association and their Drivers.

The winners of the "Safe & Courteous" Driver Award will be determined by the following criteria:

  1. Least moving violations
  2. Least "at-fault" accidents
  3. Tiebreakers will be decided by:
    1. total accidents involved in
    2. your previous driving over 50,000 miles per year


The Truckers Pride Contest, sponsored by Truck Insurance Specialist, Inc.,  is a fun addition to an already great Mid-West Truck & Trailer Show.  Trucks of all makes, models, and years are welcome, and are a huge attraction at the Truck Show.  If you have a unique, very clean, or over the top custom rig, we want you at the show!  February can be a contrary month weather-wise, but we offer complimentary rinse-off at arrival, and an entire day prior to the show for detailing and polishing on-site.

Classes in the Truckers Pride contest will vary slightly depending on the entries received. 
All classes are considered work trucks, but the awards given out include:

People’s Choice

Attendees at the show vote on their favorite truck. Cash prizes and trophies awarded for first and second places.

Driver’s Choice

Only other show contestants can attest to how much work goes into participating in a truck show in the winter months! This prize is chosen by the participants of the Truckers Pride contest.  Cash prizes and trophies awarded for first and second places.

We want to ensure the topics and speakers are current and address pressing issues that impact your business.
