Kentucky hauler stars on History Channel w/ Larry the Cable Guy this Tuesday


LarrycableguybenTomorrow, Tuesday, March 15, at 9 p.m. ET Murray, Ky.-based driver Ben Brumley (pictured) will take Larry the Cable Guy part of the way through a tour of the long-haul life at the mammoth Iowa 80 Truck Stop in Walcott, Iowa, an episode in Mr. Cable Guy’s “Only in America” series. In it, Larry sets out to explore “all that’s unique and interesting to America,” and it’s certain you won’t find anything like Iowa 80 anywhere else in the world.

A former Marine, Brumley has been driving truck for about 27 years, with 3 million safe miles. You may recognize Brumley from Freewheelin’ on Sirius XM’s Greenhorn Garage segment. In his “Only in America” episode, Mr. Cable Guy rides shotgun with Brumley as they head to the biggest truck stop in the world, serving more than two million cups of coffee a year and going through 55 miles of toilet paper a month. Larry and Ben hit the bathrooms for  “a very interesting shower scene,” Brumley told producers from Kentucky Educational Television.
