“`The Eastbound and Down Burt Reynolds Memorial Convoy will line up September 30th at 12p in the Texarkana Convention Center parking lot. Advanced registration will not be required. Currently, there are over forty-eight big rigs expected.

“`If you wish to make the full run from Texarkana to Atlanta, you need to be available for the ten hour-planned route along I-20.  A map of planned stops will be distributed when the convoy leaves the lot.

“`You may arrive Saturday evening and park in the Convention Center lot. They have a total day of events planned with the Mayors’ Proclamation at noon that is completely free for CDL Drivers. Festivities include a performance by Canadian country group The Road Hammers, a comedy show, and three Burt Reynolds films that were chosen by truckers in a poll.

“`The planned route takes you on I-30 East to I-49 South to I-220 East to I-20 East. The final destination will be a truck stop in Atlanta.  It is a fitting event that is recognized by the city of Texarkana, Burt’s family and manager, the media, and the trucking industry.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
