Heavy Duty Trucking has teamed up with Today's Trucking, an award-winning Canadian magazine published by Newcom, to bring you the Ultimate Test Drive Video series. We're kicking it off with a special two-part "twin sticks" edition. Equipment Editor Jim Park visits Mack's test track in Allentown, Pa., to experience first-hand 50 years of advancements in transmission technology.
Park, a truck driver and owner-operator for 20 years before becoming a trucking journalist, has won nine Jesse H. Neal honors for business journalism and has been covering trucking since 1998.
Park also wrote about the experience driving the twin-stick 1957 B61 Mack in his On the Road blog.
