KIRKLAND, Wash. —  Kenworth Truck Co. has announced that it will extend a successful rebate program with the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA) through 2012.

 Originally introduced 10 years ago, the program offers a $1,000 rebate to OOIDA members on qualifying purchases of new Kenworth sleeper trucks.

Under the program, OOIDA members have purchased more than 7,300 Kenworth trucks during that period.

Eligible Kenworth trucks include the Kenworth T660, T800 and W900 with 72-inch AeroCab or 86-inch Studio AeroCab sleeper, and the T700 with 75-inch AERODYNE sleeper. Buyers must show their OOIDA membership card to their Kenworth dealer at time of purchase in 2012.

 “Kenworth is pleased to offer owner-operators a $1,000 rebate on qualifying new Kenworth truck purchases in cooperation with OOIDA during 2012,” said Erik Johnson, Kenworth on-highway marketing manager. “More than 350 OOIDA members benefited from this successful program in 2011.“

Other limitations apply on the Kenworth rebate program. Truckers should see their Kenworth dealer for further details.

 Founded in 1973, OOIDA is as an advocacy group for owner-operators and independent truck drivers and currently has 150,000 members. OOIDA’s website is at www.ooida.com.
