Trailer Backing

Trailer BackingThis is an event that tests the truck driver’s ability to back the truck and trailer through an obstacle course. Stakes are driven into the ground to outline the course. Any driver knocking over one of these stakes will be penalized. The driver who is able to back his truck and trailer between the stakes in the quickest time will be the winner. Requires eyes in the back of the head, a delicate foot on the throttle, cool but expert judgment, a knowledge of what the trailer is going to do and a bit of luck! The driver can only look into his side mirrors.
