Truck Stops to Remain Open to Serve Drivers

NATSO, representing the travel plaza and truckstop industry, issued the following statement today confirming that its members remain open and continue to serve the professional drivers who are transporting supplies and goods in support of COVID-19 emergency relief.  



Colorado TopTech- Postponed


Due to the growing concerns of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) CMCA has decided to postpone the April 4, 2020 TopTech Competition. We will not be able to reschedule this event until a later date. This decision was not made lightly, but the health, safety and security of all our participants, volunteers and sponsors remain a top priority.

CMCA will be working with Lincoln Tech and the TopTech Committee to determine alternative dates. Once we confirm the new dates, we will give you adequate time to review and confirm your attendance.

CMCA will apply all registration fees and sponsorship commitments to the rescheduled date. If you are unable to attend the rescheduled date you may transfer your registration to another competitor or CMCA will refund you.

Thank you for your understanding and patience, if you have any questions please contact CMCA at 303-433-3375 or
