2016 Sponsorship Opportunities

Sponsorships due by May 1, 2016


The North Carolina Truck Driving Championship is a costly undertaking and entry fees cover only a portion of the expenses. We depend on donations and sponsorships from our industry friends to help make the Championship viable each year. Our sponsors are honored and recognized for their contributions through ad space in the Championship program, announcements and signage throughout the event and the Tarheel Wheels Magazine.


We also depend on the many volunteers that come out each year to help with the judging, preparation and other activities throughout the event.  Thank you to our sponsors and volunteers!
