Prior to the 2013 season, Oklahoma State University purchased a 2014 Pinnacle model spec’d for the unique demands of weekly multi-state treks to football games, which includes bringing the Cowboys’ complete weight room for training on the road.

The truck features a 70-inch high-rise sleeper, and a galvanized steel cab mounted on airbags and shocks and stabilized with sway bars. The truck was purchased from Enid Mack Sales, Inc. in Enid, Okla., which has been a Mack Trucks dealer since 1976.

image002Wes Edwards, Oklahoma State athletics equipment director, says the truck is equipped with a Mack MP8 engine with 505 horsepower and mDRIVE automated manual transmission.

 â€śThis is a great opportunity for people who may not be familiar with the trucking industry to see how versatile and durable Mack trucks are for a variety of customers,” John Walsh, Mack vice president of marketing, says.
