The Arkansas Trucking Association will again celebrate the nation’s truck drivers this year by providing free hot lunches and cold drinks at the Idella M. Hansen North Little Rock Stopping Center at the Galloway Exit (161) Wednesday.

Meals will be served beginning at 10 a.m. and continue until 3 p.m. at the TA/Petro.

Approximately 700 truck drivers participated last year and not only chowed down but also listened to live country music by Truckload Carriers Association Highway Angel spokesperson and recording artist Lindsay Lawler and her band.

The event was a partnership between TA/Petro and the Arkansas Trucking Association and is one of the numerous appreciation celebrations that are taking place on September 10-16 across the country at carriers’ corporate offices, distribution centers, travel plazas, rest areas and more than 250 TA truck stops in the U.S.

“I come to the driver appreciation [event] every year,” Keith Lilly, a 17-year driver who hauls for Trinity Logistics, told The Trucker last year. “I just get to relax and have fun.”
