CPC hosted a reception at PBR St. Louis in Ballpark Village where each driver was recognized for their achievements during a ceremony led by CPC President Butch Wallis, CPC Managing Director Duane Trower, and CPC Vice President of Operations and Safety Daniel Most.

On June 5, before the sold-out race started, the drivers drove two laps in their semi-tractor trailers around World Wide Technology Raceway’s oval. During their laps, an announcer read each driver’s name and accomplishments while his picture was broadcast on the jumbotron. After their laps, they were able to enjoy the CPC VIP tent and performances from artists such as Jimmie Allen and Cole Swindell.

“In the past, we have sent drivers who were being recognized by the National Private Truck Council to an annual conference, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we were unable to take them to those locations in 2020 and 2021,” said Wallis. “This ‘Driver Salute’ event was a special way for all of us at CPC to thank those dedicated drivers for their hard work.”
