Love’s Travel Stops will celebrate reaching its milestone of 300 store locations at its newest travel stop in Lenoir City, Tenn.
To commemorate the occasion, Love’s is holding a grand opening event for its customers and the community. Plans for the event include appearances by FrontRow Motorsports NASCAR drivers #38 David Gilliland and #34 David Ragan with the Love’s car.
Love’s will present the community with a $15,000 donation towards the restoration of Lenoir City’s downtown War Memorial building and a $2,000 donation for construction of a handicap accessible community park.
Love’s employees from stores in the region are also holding a volunteer event repainting picnic tables at the Lenoir City Park. The volunteer effort was coordinated with the help of the city’s Parks and Recreation Department.
We spoke at length with Lane Kidd, managing director of the Washington, D.C.-based Alliance for Driver Safety & Security (a.k.a. the Trucking Alliance) about which issues the carrier-driven and safety-focused lobbying group is most engaged with this year.
