Going to GATS?

| Wednesday, August 24, 2005

The Great American Trucking Show kicks off Thursday, Aug. 25, and runs through Saturday, Aug. 27, at the Dallas Convention Center in downtown Dallas, just off of Interstate 35.

Among the many scheduled happenings at the show is the announcement of the winner of Castrol’s Big Honkin’ Truck Makeover. Saturday at 10 a.m. one of the three finalists will find out if they were the crowd favorite and will receive the $50,000 truck makeover from Castrol.

The finalists for the Big Honkin’ Truck Makeover are OOIDA member Ed Godfrey from Dallas, OOIDA member Jeff Fields from Tully, NY, and Robert Jones from Lithia Springs, GA.

Attendees will be able to vote for one of the finalists from 10 a.m. Thursday until 5 p.m. Friday. The announcement of the winner is set to take place on Castrol’s stage in the main lobby between the Midnight Trucking and Sirius Satellite Radio booths.

Also on the GATS schedule this year are two concerts. Terri Clark is scheduled to take the stage at 6:30 p.m. Friday and Sammy Kershaw’s concert is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Saturday.

Don’t forget to stroll through the Pride and Polish competition. Winners will be announced Saturday morning.

OOIDA representatives will be in Booth No. 13089, next to the XM Satellite Radio booth.
