T Dear Friends:
Welcome to the Mid-Atlantic Professional Truck Drivers Association's website, homepage for the 2021 Charity FunDrive.
Numerous drivers, safety personnel and members of management from various trucking companies founded our organization in 2001. MAPTDA was formed to promote the professionalism and safety of commercial truck drivers, while improving driving skills, encouraging friendly relations among drivers and promoting good will toward the trucking industry.
Our truck driving competition, which benefits the Make-A-Wish Foundation, involves a course offering (10) skills tests and an optional pre-trip inspection. Drivers from across the country come to compete for prizes and awards.
The 20th Annual Charity "FunDrive" will be held on Saturday, September 11, 2021 at the Petro Travel Plaza in Raphine, Virginia. Entry forms and other related forms are posted here on the website. We will have early sign-in via email, and early on Saturday morning the 11th at the Petro Travel Plaza.
