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
