For the next two years, the newly chosen captains will tour North America in ATA’s Interstate One Image Truck, an American flag emblazoned Volvo VNL 780 with a state-of-the-art truck driving simulator. According to the ATA, the captains, who will remain full-time truck drivers with their various ATA member companies, will speak about the life of a truck driver, the role trucking plays in the delivery of critical goods and the safety-first mentality held by drivers.
The America’s Road Team is sponsored by Volvo Trucks. It was established in 1986 as an outreach initiative designed to introduce the motoring public, lawmakers and the media to the trucking industry.
