“Attendees will also have the opportunity to meet with our supplier partners such as Allison Transmission, Cummins, Detroit, Meritor, and more, who will have booths with equipment and information on display.
“And while we love those shiny, sleek Stars, all trucks are welcome – including those hard working Stars that may be coming straight off the road, even if they have not had a chance to register beforehand.”
