    The Arrow truck sales Back on The Road contest is a good concept for a really deserving owner operator.The contest should be run fairly and more open.Some of the questions ask at the inperson interviews such as Do you listen to Fox News,and Glenn Beck on xm radio should not be ask.It’s the same as asking if you are republican.Neither of the first two winners were really even owner operators.This years winner ownes a truck,even if it is 14yrs. old.I watched the bio of Robert snyder video.The Pete that he ownes has plenty of added chrome,and looks well taken care of.He says he hopes the economy gets better so he can repair it.(then he’ll own two trucks?)His wife says they had to let one of their cars go back,now they have to share one.Yes,the economy has been especially hard on truckers,but if Mr.Snyder already owned a truck and was struggling,how is giving him a different truck going to change anything for him or his family?My question is does any of the sponsors of this contest have anything to do with selecting the winner?Do they just let Arrow Truck Sales make the selection??
