Alex Debogorski, star of “Ice Road Truckers” television show, will sign autographs in the Bridgestone Bandag Tire Solutions booth at The Great American Trucking Show in Dallas, Aug. 26-28.
Bridgestone, a division of Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, will be in the Dallas Convention Center, at booth #16089. Debogorski will be featured with the Firestone-brand truck tire team.
Debogorski will appear Aug. 26-27 from 1-4 p.m. and Aug. 28 from 12:30-3 p.m.
A trucker for 38 years, Debogorski has been driving the treacherous ice roads of the Northwest Territories, Canada, for 28 years. Described as a larger-than-life character and something of a good-luck-charm to his fellow truckers, he typically pulls the first load onto the ice each season.
Affected trucks include model year 2008-2018 Freightliner Cascadia and Western Star 4700, 4900, 5700 and 6900 trucks. DTNA says after hard brake applications, the brake light pressure switch may not activate the brake lights with the light application of the brake pedal.
