North Carolina Urban Search & Rescue Task Force 8 traveled to Charlotte today for a two-day exercise. Here are Raleigh's rigs on Interstate 40, headed to merge with Cary, Chapel Hill, and Durham units. As for the song, C. W. McCall's novelty record was a number-one hit in the US in 1975. Read what Wiki says. The song helped started the CB radio craze, the article notes. Wonder where that fits in the timeline of trucker songs and trucker movies? Smokey and the Bandit, by way, was released in 1977. Directed by Hal Needham, who also directed The Cannonball Run in 1981. Watch those great bloopers of Burt and Dom and the rest of the goofy gang.
