2 0 1 5 V 3 | BULLDOG | 3 Mack Pinnacles star in new season of 'Ice Road Truckers' P olar Industries, the big dog fl eet in the "Ice Road Truckers" series, switched to Mack Pinnacles with mDRIVE TM . The show's newest competitor, Darrel Ward, drives the Rawhide Edition Sleeper, Alex Debogorski operates rugged terrain with his Pinnacle, and Todd Dewey is featured navigating mud and ice in his Pinnacle. Polar Industry owner Mark Kohaykewych ordered two bright white 2015 Mack Pinnacle tractors with 70-inch mid- rise sleepers, spec'ed with Grand Touring interior trims and Polar's name all over them. Darlene Biblow, truck sales associ- ate for Mack Sales & Service of Manitoba, says the new Macks have powerful Mack MP8 445hp engines paired with mDRIVE automated mechanical transmissions for more hands-on-the-wheel control. "When working with customers who run on the treacherous ice roads in Canada everything is, 'I need it now'," Kohaykewych says. M ack Trucks Historical Museum Curator Don Schumaker received the Historian of the Industry Award from the American Truck Historical Society (ATHS). The award recognizes individuals who have been diligent in their pursuit of the history of the trucking industry and was pre- sented to Schumaker during ATHS' National Convention in York, Pennsylvania. "Don has made signifi cant contributions to protecting and promoting the history of Mack Trucks, and we're proud to see his efforts recognized with the Historian of the Industry Award," says Stephen Roy, president of Mack Trucks North America, "Through his decades of service, fi rst as an employee and then as curator of the museum, Don has been a true ambassador for Mack." Located at the Mack Customer Center in Allentown, Pennsylvania, the Mack Trucks Historical Museum is a separate, not-for- profi t corporation that explores the history of Mack and demonstrates the industry-leading manufacturing techniques that have kept Mack at the forefront of heavy-duty trucking. In addition to the museum, the Mack Customer Center is home to the Mack Heritage Center, a Mack showroom and a performance track where customers can test drive Mack vehicles.
