How to get the most out of the Great American Trucking Show

And if you’re a full-time over-the-road trucker, you would be hard pressed to find another convention that would provide you with the entertainment and education that a trucker needs to keep the wheels rolling.

Before you run around and take in all the sights and sounds of the Great American Trucking show, take a load off and see Michael John Montgomery in concert, Friday, Aug. 26.
