‘Highway Thru Hell’ Star Jamie Davis Visits Mack Trucks
GREENSBORO, NC (Sept. 17, 2018) –
Jamie Davis, star of the international hit television show “Highway Thru Hell,” recently visited Mack Trucks’ Lehigh Valley Operations in Macungie, Pennsylvania, where all Mack ® truck models for North America and export are assembled. Davis followed his Mack Anthem ® model (left) through the assembly process, even lending a hand to help install the iconic Mack Bulldog (right). Davis’ Discovery Channel film crew captured the day’s events, which will be featured during the upcoming seventh season of “Highway Thru Hell.” “Highway Thru Hell” features Jamie Davis Motor Truck, Davis’ legendary heavy truck rescue company, as they navigate the extreme roads and relentless weather of Canada’s Rocky Mountains. Taking on high-risk vehicle recoveries, Davis and his team help keep open some of the most economically important – and most inhospitable – trucking routes in North America. “Highway Thru Hell” airs on the Discovery Channel in Canada, the Weather Channel in the U.S. and streams on Netflix around the world.
