GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. — The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA) is throwing a party to celebrate its 40th birthday. And you’re invited.
The association is celebrating its 40th on Oct. 18-19, 2013 at Kansas Speedway, as what it has dubbed the Heart of America Trucking Show. It will be open to members, non-members and the public.
“We wanted to get the word out as soon as possible so that the trucking community can save the date,” said Mike Schermoly, marketing director with OOIDA. “Forty years of representing professional truck drivers is a milestone that gives our members and friends a great reason to celebrate,” said Schermoly. “We are pleased to be able to hold the event here in Kansas City at an exceptional venue in a world class motorsports facility like the Kansas Speedway.”
Additional details will be released in the coming weeks, the group said. Activities will include a truck beauty contest, contests, educational sessions, concerts, food and vendors.
