Companies that have at least four drivers competing are eligible to compete for the prestigious Team Trophy. The company that receives the Team Trophy earns the right to hold the trophy for one year and has their name engraved in history on the trophy. To determine the recipient of the Team Trophy, the top four scores from each team are averaged to calculate the team score. The company with the highest team score is named the winner. The Step Van class is not included when calculating a team score, however a Step Van driver can receive the Team Trophy if his/her company has the high score. No company may have more than one team, and all of the drivers from the winning team will be listed on the trophy. Competing drivers who are retired from the company are also eligible to be included in the company group.

The Team Trophy is sponsored annually by the professional truck driving associations credited with this fundraiser:
