    Negatory, mi amigo.

    Let's just say, one time one of their trucks got pulled over and the naive deputy asked why the driver was out of uniform.
    Since the truck had the discontinued logo of a certain branch of the service.

    I wonder how many dumb- ### newbies sign up with USA Truck because they think they're gonna get to ride in a fighter jet. :biggrin_2559:

    About the same amount that think they're getting that brand new Kennywhopper on the adds.

    (here's a hint, the mix was about 45% 9400, 27% Prostar, 13% Cascadia, 9% Kenny and 6% Pete when I left.)

    Never fought over an empty. Though when I showed up at General Mills in Albuquerque to pick up a loaded/drop my empty one of the local Werner drivers asked where I got it. I did a drop/hook at the Lost Loonies WMDC. He told me I got lucky that Werner empties in ABQ were scarce and GM was being picky about letting guys in to pick up loaded trailers without dropping an empty. I guess the time the security guard got yelled at for letting me bobtail in for a load was sort of a fight over a trailer...or lack thereof lol!
