The Iowa 80, “the world’s largest truck stop,” will be featured on the Wednesday, June 13 episode of “Modern Marvels” on the History Channel. The one-hour show airs at 10 p.m. Eastern. While the episode focuses on modern truck stops, it also will feature another business in the Iowa 80 Group: CAT Scale, begun in 1977 by longtime Iowa 80 owner-manager Bill Moon.
“We are flattered that the History Channel chose us to represent the trucking industry,” says Delia Moon Meier, Iowa 80 Group senior vice president, “and equally pleased to be able to share our newly expanded and remodeled facility with History Channel viewers.”
The Iowa 80, located in Walcott, Iowa, at Exit 284 from Interstate 80, is known for its annual Truckers Jamboree, which more than 30,000 people attended in 2006. The 2007 Jamboree is July 12-13, featuring a truck beauty contest, food, games, music and more than 175 exhibits.
