What’s on tap for this week’s Overdrive Radio edition:

1) Owner-op Allen Kelly of Pennsylvania runs through some of the particulars for the “That’s a Big 10-4 on D.C.” event coming up and beginning October 3 in Fredericksburg, Va., on to Washington, D.C., on 10/4 though the next couple days. 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.

Trucker Tom Kyrk, pictured onstage at GATS, where he delivered several demos for attendees centered on the culinary arts in practice on the truck.Trucker Tom Kyrk, pictured onstage at GATS, where he delivered several demos for attendees centered on the culinary arts in practice on the truck.

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.

3) Shannon Currier of the St. Christopher Truckers Fund joined Kyrk and I at GATS and ran me through the longtime charity’s fund-raising efforts, including a heartfelt thank you to its no. 1 well of support — that’s you. Take a listen:
