Rush Truck Centers 10th Annual Tech Skills Rodeo

Day 1 of the Rush Truck Centers' 10th Annual Technician Skills competition featured 160 technicians and parts specialists from across the company's dealer network trying to diagnose staged bugs on trucks before the clock ran out. Most of the staged problems are electronic in nature, which requires technicans to run the appropriate troubleshooting steps and processes. More often than not, the problem has several trick dead ends that can mislead all but the best of them. Only 25 techs advanced to the finals.
