After participating in HDA Truck Pride’s inaugural Top Tech Competition, two technicians are advancing to TMC’s SuperTech event. Brian Judy from RT & T Repair in East Dubuque, Illinois, and Evan Lang from E.L.M. Repair and Refrigeration in Edgar, Wisconsin, beat out four other HDA Truck Pride Truck Service Experts and 50 other technicians, to finish fifth and sixth overall, respectively.

The event took place at the Maryland Motor Truck Association’s hands-on competition late last month in Baltimore. The two will move on to compete with hundreds of finalists during the September 2018 TMC SuperTech competition held in Orlando, Florida.

“While our staff at HDA Truck Pride is incredibly proud of the success of the inaugural year of this program, it’s apparent that the overwhelming sense of pride comes from our Truck Service Expert’s and their sponsoring HDA Truck Pride Distributor,” said Nikki Paschall, marketing programs manager for HDA Truck Pride. “Two of our six finalists had their trips to Maryland upgraded by their employer, with enhanced flights, hotel accommodations, spending money, vacation time and more. In addition, our suppliers have sponsored prizes for our winners. Minimizer will be sending a prize package to the top two winners – valued at over $600! Ingersoll Rand is also sending a prize package of hand tools – valued at over $400. Training is at the forefront of everything we do and we’re honored to be partnered with suppliers, distributors and truck service experts who support this mission.”
