RoadPro plans virtual trucker appreciation concert

RoadPro Family of Brands isn’t able to visit local travel centers as they have in years past to thank drivers and hand out prizes, so this year RoadPro is taking it virtual. And, while National Trucker Appreciation Week begins Sept. 13 and concludes on Sept. 19, don’t be surprised to see more special events all month long.

On Sept. 16, RoadPro will release a virtual concert on its Facebook page, with a line up of musicians that also happen to be truck drivers. Featured artists include former Overdrive Trucker Talent Search participants Ken Freeman, Mandi Jo Pinheiro, Taylor Barker, Bill Weaver, and Paul Marhoefer.

A special message from each musician will also be featured during the concert. All week long, special messages from other drivers, and what makes them feel appreciated will be posted. There will also be a special appreciation video specific to the truck drivers that keep America moving every day.

Truckers can also participate in the Brake Time Blitz, an opportunity to join the truck driver community on Brake Time and be entered to win a one of a kind prize pack. Entry into the giveaway begins Monday, Sept. 14, and runs through Saturday, Sept. 19. All current Brake Time members will also receive a surprise gift in the mail to further spread the appreciation.

RoadPro’s own Pro Driver Council members will be distributing hats and special PPE kits throughout the month. In addition, RoadPro will support national events with product donations and giveaways conducted by trucking companies such as Swift Transportation, Knight Transportation, Iron Maintenance, Trinity Logistics, and Combined Transport.
