Kelly and company — and there are quite a good number of different owner-ops who’ve participated in the various parts of the organization of the event — are inviting owner-ops, company drivers, and anybody involved in trucking, really, as you’ll hear, to participate.
2) Stevens Transport driver and RoadTestedLiving.com proprietor Tom Kyrk I spoke to at the Great American Trucking Show about his in-cab cooking demos and a recipe that’s part of a sweepstakes you can get involved in — vote for your favorite of three via Southern Recipe’s trucker appreciation page here for a chance to win two grand through this coming Monday, Sept. 17.
And if you ever cook yourself out on the road — or at home for that matter — Kyrk’s ideas may get your culinary mind rolling.
