The self-proclaimed No. 1 fan of truckers – “American Trucker” host Robb Mariani – will be available for a live video chat and question and answer session Monday, Oct. 17, at 9 p.m. EDT. The chat is part of the Truckers News Celebrity Series.
Mariani is fresh off of filming episodes for the second season of the Speed Channel series, in which he visits tornado-ravaged Joplin, Mo., profiles a small independent carrier and acts as a guest judge for the Custom Rigs Pride & Polish competition at the Great American Trucking Show in Dallas.
Another highlight of the season: “I got chased around by the ‘Duel’ Perterbilt,” Mariani said of the truck used in the 1971 movie.
Registration for the online chat is free.
Dave Redmon, former “Ice Road Trucker” star, will be featured in the Truckers News Celebrity Series next month.
