Joplin 44 Petro debuts Super Truck Showroom this weekend

| Monday, May 16, 2011

Fun, food and fabulous trucks await attendees at Joplin 44 Petro’s Super Truck Showroom celebration this Friday and Saturday, May 20-21. The event takes place at the Petro at Exit 4, I-44, in Joplin, MO.

Ribbon-cutting on the new showroom and completely remodeled truck stop will be Friday afternoon. During the two-day event, truckers can enjoy the Super Truck Beauty Contest, barbeque cookouts, live music, games and more.

OOIDA Life Member and country singer Leland Martin is performing Friday night on the main stage.

The remodeling has nearly doubled the size of the truck stop, which now features more food choices for drivers. In the showroom, truckers can shop for vinyl graphics, custom shirts, embroidery and laser engraving. A wall is dedicated to lights, and the display shows what they look like when illuminated.

Festivities continue through Saturday and include an antique truck display and a Daytona 500 ticket drawing.
