RaceTrac Inc. will celebrate National Truck Driver Appreciation Week with giveaways, a free hot dog lunch, and even a free massage station at one store location.

RaceTrac says that it will offer several perks exclusively to truck drivers at its travel center and EDO (Expanded Diesel Offer) stores throughout September.

“We see Truck Driver Appreciation Week as a great opportunity to recognize the people who dedicate so many hours on the road to delivering the goods we depend on daily,” said Mark Reese, the vice president of store support at RaceTrac. “As a business, RaceTrac relies on truck drivers not only to supply our store with fuel and products, but also as valued customers who stop in to fill up with us. We believe it’s important to show thanks for the hard work these drivers give, day in and day out.”

During Truck Driver Appreciation Week, September 11 – 17, RaceTrac plans in-store events and giveaways, including:

  • Lynco Products will host daily free item and coupon giveaways at various travel centers throughout Truck Driver Appreciation week including one grand prize giveaway for Bluetooth headphones. Guests can check rttruckdrivers.com for specific dates and location information.
  • On September 14, Nathan’s Famous Hot Dogs is sponsoring a free hot dog from 1 to 2 p.m. at all RaceTrac travel centers. 
  • Truck drivers will have access to a free massage station at the Forest Park store (132 Forest Pkwy, Forest Park, Ga.) on September 13, from 12 to 6 p.m.

RaceTrac will also be offering Truck Driver Appreciation deals throughout September via the company’s mobil app. The app exclusive promotions are available from September 1 – 30, 2022, and include earning 2x points on in-store purchases. Drivers can download the RaceTrac Rewards mobile app or visit RaceTrac.com/Rewards to learn more and sign up.

As part of Truck Driver Appreciation, RaceTrac is supporting and raising awareness of Truckers Emergency Assistance Responders (T.E.A.R.) non-profit organization. T.E.A.R. was founded by three truck drivers in 2019 to help fellow truck drivers who were stranded on the road and unable to get home with their belongings. The organization now serves as a relief fund that provides immediate assistance to truck drivers in distress.
