NORTH POLE — No way could Santa squeeze down an exhaust stack.
So, this year, he’ll use a more size-appropriate method for visiting over-the-road drivers who are working Christmas Eve. He’s inviting them into the local Flying J for a free Christmas feast.
In any case, the sponsoring companies are treating all drivers to Turkey supper, with all the trimmings, if they stop at a Flying J and show their CDL, anytime between 5:00 and 7:00 Dec. 24, at any of the 163 participating outlets across the Continent.

Canadian outlets can be found in Saskatoon, Napanee, London, Vaudreuil, Edmonton, Calgary and Headingly, which is just outside Winnipeg.
Explains, Scott Kress, Volvo Trucks senior vice president of sales and marketing. "Drivers really are unsung heroes, and they are also our customers. So in this holiday season, with economic hardship affecting so many, Volvo Trucks wants to recognize truckers working on Christmas Eve.”
