GATS_logoAnother One in the Books….

The Great American Trucking Show in Dallas, Tx. on August 25-27, 2016 was another huge success. Plans have already started to make next years’ show even bigger and better.
Among the many things happening at the show was the second annual Landstar Fit for the Road Health Pavilion and the TA/Petro truck parking community out at Fair Park.
“Onramp to Health” members were instrumental in helping to organize both of these events.

The health pavilion featured two new additions this year that included sleep apnea screening with Dr. John McElligott/St. Christopher Fund as well as DOT physicals for $55 being conducted by our new friends at AccuScreen.

There was also a 5K road race out at the truck parking lot sponsored by Progressive Insurance and Right Weigh Load Scales with free shuttle service to and from the convention center.
