OOIDA’s 40th anniversary promises to be a heckuva bash

For the first time ever, the management and staff at OOIDA are calling on our members and all interested truckers to come together in a single national event and share in the pride, accomplishments and camaraderie of being part of the largest trucker organization in the country – now 40 years strong.

Plan on joining us Oct. 18-19, 2013, at the Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, KS, as OOIDA hosts an extraordinary two-day celebration for OOIDA members and non-members alike to mark four decades of representing the interests of all professional truckers and fighting to protect their rights.

Registration is now open for the event on You can find out more about the show at this website plus locate accommodations near the show.

A full schedule of events is still being developed, but the celebration will feature a show truck competition, live music, games, educational seminars, vendors and much more. Be sure to visit the website often, as additional special announcements and details will be posted in the near future. You can now follow news on the event on Facebook.
