A long-haul trucker from Janesville, Wis., won Great American Insurance Group’s BIG RIG GIVEAWAY at the Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS) on March 24 in Louisville, Ky., the company announced.
Bruce Doering’s name was drawn at random from more than 7,500 entries received during the three month contest period. Doering won a 2002 Freightliner Classic customized by 4 State Trucks, home of the popular Chrome Shop Mafia body shop.
The BIG RIG GIVEAWAY was open to all truckers with a valid commercial drivers’ license. Doering, an independent owner-operator, has been insured by Cincinnati, Ohio-based Great American since April 2006. Great American Insurance Group’s Trucking Division provides insurance products and services to independent owner-operators. The contest demonstrates Great American’s commitment to the trucking industry.
Doering’s customized Freightliner features a navy blue exterior with hand-painted graphics that depict some of America’s famous monuments. The interior renovation includes a unique red, white and blue dashboard, chrome detailing, an externally mounted video camera with in-cab display to minimize blind spots, and a full-color illustration of an American Bald Eagle in the sleeper cab. The American eagle is an integral part of Great American’s marketing identity.
