Telematics supplier Omnitracs has launched a contest that will recognize truckers’ pets that join them in their travels across the country.
Omnitracs’ Big Rig Buddies 2017 Giveaway allows drivers, both current and retired, to submit a photo of their pet and a brief description explaining why their pet is the best companion on the road.
Entries into the contest will be accepted through Aug. 23, and the contest will culminate at the Great American Trucking Show in Dallas on National Dog Day, Aug. 26. An Omnitracs panel of judges will vote on which driver has the “pick of the litter,” and a first-place winner and a second-place runner-up will be selected. The winner will receive a $700 PetSmart gift card, and the runner-up will receive a $300 PetSmart gift card.
Winners will be interviewed by Red Eye Radio host Eric Harley, and both the driver and pet will be highlighted on the Red Eye Radio Show. Entries can be made here.
