On July 2, one lucky business capacity owner (BCO) will get the keys to a new 2020 Kenworth T680 during the annual BCO All-Star Celebration. Each year Landstar gives away a new truck, including all registration fees and taxes, to one of its elite independent owner-operators – a pool of Roadstar® recipients and Million Mile Safe Drivers.
This year, the crisp-white Kenworth T680 is equipped with a fuel-efficient PACCAR MX-13 engine, PACCAR transmission and PACCAR drive axles. Touted as the most advanced, aerodynamic truck ever produced by Kenworth, the T680 includes ground-breaking technology and ergonomic comfort designed to elevate a driver’s experience.
Featuring fuel-saving intelligence, the truck’s idle management system is designed to eliminate the need for off-duty temperature control and integrate with real-time reporting technology to help a driver run for maximum fuel efficiency. Including the Kenworth Driver Performance Center, the truck’s 5-inch, full color display screen gives drivers an at-a-glance visual of fuel efficiency, truck diagnostics and performance indicators.
Also equipped with the Bendix® Wingman® Fusion™ technology, the T680 offers owner-operators an enhanced level of safety. The technology system features adaptive cruise control, collision mitigation and lane departure warning to alert the driver of potential road debris, impacts, lane departures and speed limitations.
The 2019 Landstar All-Star Truck Giveaway, powered by Comdata, will be the grand finale of the 2019 BCO All-Star Celebration being held in Savannah, Georgia, July 1-3, 2019. The annual event is an induction ceremony that honors the newest Landstar Million Mile Safe Drivers and Landstar Roadstar® recipients for their safe driving records and professionalism.
While the All-Star truck giveaway is exclusively reserved for Million Mile Safe Drivers and Roadstar honorees, all of the more than 10,000 independent owner-operators leased to Landstar have another opportunity to win a new truck. The Landstar Deliver to Win Truck Giveaway is held each year during Landstar’s annual BCO Appreciation event where every eligible independent BCO has an opportunity to win.
In January, Landstar BCO Rosemberg Villarreal won the 2019 Deliver to Win Truck Giveaway and drove home to Grand Prairie, Texas, in a 2019 Peterbilt 579 Ultraloft. The next Deliver to Win Truck Giveaway is scheduled for September 2020 in Rockford, Illinois.
