Belmor, a leading provider of heavy duty truck accessories, invites all Veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces who are current commercial truck drivers to participate in the 2017 Belmor “I Did My Duty… Now I Drive Heavy Duty” contest. The winner will receive a Grand Prize, all-expenses-paid trip to the 2017 Mid America Trucking Show (MATS) in Louisville, Kentucky.

Participants are invited to enter the contest by “telling us their story” and answering a few questions about their military service and their career in the heavy duty truck driving industry. Topics include “Why would you like to win the Grand Prize trip to MATS?”, “What made you decide to enter the field of Heavy Truck Driving?”, and “What makes you enjoy your job and connects you to the trucking world and fellow truck drivers?”

Entrants have until January 5, 2017 to submit their story via email: An esteemed panel of Judges including representatives from the trucking industry, veteran employment agencies, and Lund International President and CEO Mitch Fogle will rate submissions based on criteria such as emotional engagement of each story and the overall strength of the entrant’s answers to the contest questions.
