The competition marked the end of a week-long event for the drivers and their families. The 29 competing drivers spent the week training and practicing for the championship while their families enjoyed fun-filled excursions in the Northwest Arkansas area with the J.B. Hunt Experience Team. In the evenings, the drivers and their families had the opportunity to share a meal as they told their stories and connected with fellow drivers.
