As part of the special event, Red Classic President Spencer Webster drove the new Mack Anthem® off the production line at Mack's Lehigh Valley Operations in Macungie, Pennsylvania. The Anthem day cab model became the 1,000th Mack® truck to enter Red Classic's fleet.
During the event, company executives toured LVO, where all Mack Class 8 trucks are assembled for North America and export markets. After driving the Anthem model off the line, Webster handed over the keys to driver Steve Coleman of Nashville, Tennessee.
