The real Santa Clause comes to American Truck Group, LLC once a year to pay a visit to the local Boy’s & Girl’s Club. Pulled by a 470 horsepower Cascadia reindeer named Rudolph, he arrived before sundown with a sleigh full of goodies.
With Christmas crafts, holiday games, food and refreshments, each child gets their picture with Santa who comes prepared with a sack of wrapped presents for the children.
American Truck Group, LLC hosts the party for the Boy’s & Girl’s Club of America at the Dealership located in Gulfport, MS to raise local awareness while bringing cheer. Too often truck drivers are left out of the thoughts during the tough cold holiday season.

They endure long hours and have shorter times with their family, all to provide responsible transport of goods across America. Our company hopes to spread awareness in local community efforts.

GULFPORT, Miss., April 23, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — American Truck Group announced their sponsorship today of the Mississippi Trucking Association’s (MTA) annual Truck Driving Championship.
A tradition that goes back almost 40 years, the championship includes 93 truckers from 16 companies, and is expected to draw around 600 spectators. Steven Boudreaux, MTA’s Director of Safety and Membership Development, says that the competitors are “the best of the best,” drawn from all across Mississippi. The judging panel is made up of highway patrol and Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) officers.
Not limited to driving skill, the competition itself begins at 1 PM on Friday, April 25th with a written test followed by a pre-trip check test. The driving test begins at 8 the next morning, and includes two courses with eight obstacles like diminishing alleys, offset alleys, front stop, and more. The winner will go on to compete in the nationals, held in Pittsburgh this August.
Headquartered in Jackson, MS, the MTA has held the competition on the Mississippi Gulf Coast every year before Hurricane Katrina in 2006, when they were forced to temporarily move to Tupelo while the Coast recovered from the storm’s damage.
American Truck Group is sponsoring the event both to maintain its long-standing relationship with the MTA and in the hopes that events like these can draw more interest in truck driving jobs, an industry hit hard by the recession.

Every year, approximately 100 trucks meet at Fonda Fairgrounds in NY to put on a show. It is truly a popular event for the children as well as the trucking and transport community. It is also a great opportunity to promote childhood cancer awareness as all proceeds are donated to the Children’s Miracle Network hospital and other charities.
The event features a truck show, 100+ truck convoy, battle of the big rigs and food and activities for the children. Our company got involved in this event with the help of one of our former customers at American Trucks, now a manager and drivers advocate for our company, Mr. Charlie. Mr. Charlie started this event with a friend of his in 2007 and his has been going strong every year since. It is really nice to be able to do something to help children in need while creating fun and entertainment for children in the community.
We are proud to sponsor this year’s event and support the local community in doing so.
Other sponsors of the event include Walmart Transportation, DeiselBoss.com, Chrome Shop Mafia and many more.
Truck drivers, owner-operators and independents are given the opportunity to strengthen their purpose by giving back to the community.
Our Showrooms on the Gulf Coast features a state of the art, eco-friendly facility and promotes unprecedented ecological efforts to protect the surrounding wetlands. The dealership was built with low environmental impact in mind. Contributions include low energy usage, closed loop truck wash, and a habitat for wildlife.
The Gulf Coast rampant wetland loss is due to many reasons, one of the top being construction and development. This was a primary concern when American Truck Group, LLC was required to relocate alongside the wetlands due to an Interstate expansion project in 2010. The partners agreed to strive for a low environmental impact facility.
Setting precedence with genuine efforts:
- Closed Loop Truck Wash
- LED lit facility
- Wetland Preservance
- Sanctuary for animals & fowl
- Propane Initiatives
