A Look Back as the 2022 Get Tough Challenge Returns to World of Concrete

For more than a decade, the Western Star “Get Tough Challenge” has highlighted the safety and skills of the drivers who work in the concrete construction and ready-mixed industries. With the 2022 event upcoming at World of Concrete, let’s take a look back at the 2020 Get Tough Challenge.

The Get Tough Challenge, which began in 2010, consists of common tasks that drivers are asked to perform with their trucks. These tasks mirror the challenges that are found on construction sites, these common challenges include: parking, backing, crabbing, negotiating tight curves, and traversing steep inclines.

The Get Tough Challenge returns to World of Concrete in 2022. From Tuesday, January 18 through Thursday, January 20, equipment operators the chance to pilot its trucks through a grueling skills course outside the Las Vegas Convention Center. This year, Western Star will showcase its all-new X-Series vocational lineup of the 49X and 47X.
