Overdrive presents show trucks and more at Dallas show

| August 13, 2013

Family BizOverdrive’s Pride & Polish National Championship and Overdrive’s Most Beautiful contest will culminate in Dallas at The Great American Trucking Show this month, but those aren’t all the opportunities the yearly trade show offers.

The Aug. 22-24 event will also have seminars on managing the Compliance, Safety, Accountability program, owner-operator taxes, and other topics.

Highlighting the educational opportunities is Overdrive’s Partners in Business seminar for owner-operators. In the free two-hour session Aug. 23, Overdrive columnist and radio host Kevin Rutherford will present some basic business practices on how to run a one-truck operation more profitably.
