Mid America Truck Show 2014

Tuesday, February 25th, 2014 Comments are off for this post

Well, ladies and gentlemen, it is that time of the year again. We are nearly a month away from the Mid America Truck Show here in Louisville. We have all of our plans nearly wrapped up, and I wanted to pass along our itinerary, along with some other announcements.

The past few year, we have seen a huge increase in the number of visitors at Mercertown for the Truck Show. Mostly thanks to Uncle Lennie’s safety seminars. As always, we have a lot going on during Truck Show week.

Currently, we are busy remodeling the entire lower level of the driver’s lounge. I think you all will really like what you see when it is complete. We’re working overtime to have that completed by Truck Show week.

Also, our safety department has a pretty big prize for any of our contractors that has or will install an ELD (Electronic Logging Device) by March 28th, 2014. Here is their message:

Tired of filling out paper logs and sending them to Louisville? If so, we have the solution, an ELD (electronic logging device). Sign-up before the Friday of Truck Show week ( March 28, 2014) and Mercer will pay for the hardware, installation and monitoring fee. Any contractor that has the ELD installed prior to March 28, 2014 will be entered in a drawing for a $4,000.00 gift certificate to the Chrome Shop Mafia. This includes all of the contractors that have already installed an ELD in their truck. Contact the Log Department for more details.

Wow! If that doesn’t get you pumped up, then here is the itinerary for the entire week of the truck show:
