Tatum meets Mack on tour for Logan Lucky
GREENSBORO, NC - One American legend recently met another, when Channing Tatum toured the Mack Trucks' World Headquarters. The actor stopped by the plant and took a truck for a test drive as part of a press tour unlike any other for his new movie Logan Lucky. The movie, released August 18, stars Tatum as Jimmy Logan, who attempts to stage a robbery of the Coca-Cola 600 NASCAR race. The star briefly shares the screen with a Mack B model truck in the new flick. The unusual press tour took Tatum and crew on a road trip across the United States to promote the movie by showcasing America's heartland, which served as the stage for the story. Along his tour Tatum gave away a Harley Davidson motorcycle, road dirt bikes, cut down trees in Kentucky, and finished off the adventure with the movie premiere in Knoxville, TN.
