WASHINGTON — A new VNL 760 (shown) and a Volvo VNR 640 led a motorcade from the plant to Washington, D.C. this past weekend during the annual Ride for Freedom, which honors the men and women who have served — and continue to serve — to protect America.
Employees at Volvo Trucks’ New River Valley (NRV) assembly plant in Dublin, Virginia, unveiled the 2018 Ride for Freedom truck featuring the new VNL 760.
The tractor, accompanied by the custom-designed Volvo VNR 640, led more than 150 motorcycles from the plant to Washington, D.C. during the annual “Run for the Wall” Ride for Freedom motorcycle rally Memorial Day weekend.
This year marks 27 years of NRV employee and the UAW Local 2069 Veteran Committee support of the Ride for Freedom event, now in its 31st year. The custom-designed graphics on the VNL 760 long-haul tractor honor America’s military heroes of all branches with the slogan, “All gave some, some gave all … some still give.”
