Great American Trucking Show 2017
Additionally, TMAF provided an update on its continued efforts to promote a positive image of the trucking industry, highlighting recent achievements and previewing coming plans, in a press conference.
TMAF first unveiled the mascot at the Pilot Travel Center in Knoxville, Tenn. in May. Over four months, the mascot’s naming has included public participation from TMAF’s grassroots support network. Five finalist names were selected from among nearly 2000 entries from the public, and over 2,000 people have voted for their favorite. Safety Sammy beat out four finalist names: Axle, Bob Tail, Seymour S. Miles and Wheels.
