Celebrity truck driver Maya Pyskaty and seasoned driving duo Gary and Devery Jones will represent RoadWorks Manufacturing® at truck shows across the nation

Lafayette, Ind. (January, 2019) – RoadWorks Manufacturing®, a leading designer and manufacturer of stainless steel aftermarket accessories for heavy duty trucks, announced new members to its brand ambassador program for 2019, celebrity truck driver Maya Pyskaty of Lafayette, New Jersey and truck driving couple Gary and Devery Jones of Lawson, Missouri.

Representing RoadWorks Manufacturing® at heavy duty trucking shows throughout the United States, the newly named brand ambassadors will offer insights about RoadWorks’ American-made stainless steel accessories and the RoadWorks Manufacturing® Detail Products to care for them.

Maya Pyskaty is well-known, both in the commercial trucking industry for her extensive career and from her stint on season five of the television show “Ice Road Truckers.” Maya Pyskaty began her career in New York City, mastering overcrowded roads and gaining skill as a commercial truck driver.  Her love of engines started when she was just eight years old helping her dad fix old trucks and vehicles.

“As far back as I can remember I wanted to be a commercial truck driver,” said Pyskaty. “While other girls were playing with dolls, I was playing with trucks. I feel really lucky that I have been able to turn my childhood dream into reality.”

Following her appearance on “Ice Road Truckers,” Pyskaty began driving for the family business, Pyskaty Bros. in New Jersey. While she spends most of the year on local hauls, she prefers over-the-road driving in her project truck, a 1997 Peterbilt 379 named “34” after Pyskaty’s lucky number. Restored by Pyskaty herself, the Peterbilt 379 features a custom-made wood floor from Germany, a three-stage frame paint job in Maya’s signature color purple and stainless steel RoadWorks accessories.

RoadWorks Brand Ambassadors Gary and Devery Jones have a life-long history in commercial trucking. Gary Jones’ late grandfather passed on his driving passion, leading Gary to pick up the family business professionally in 1999. Both Gary and Devery Jones are active in the day-to-day operations of their company, SPB Trucking, along with several other family-owned businesses. With 11 trucks in their fleet, Devery Jones manages dispatch from the road while Gary Jones drives. Avid dog lovers, the Joneses named their company after their dogs – Sweetie, Parker, Precious and “BB” – who join them on the road.

“It’s in my bones,” said Gary Jones. “My entire life has been centered around truck driving and its culture. I couldn’t be more honored to represent a company like RoadWorks Manufacturing at truck shows and events nationwide.”

2018 is the first year the Joneses competed in a truck show with their project truck, a 1995 Peterbilt 379 named “Excessive Behavior.” Naturally being overachievers, the couple chose to show “Excessive Behavior” for the first time at North America’s largest trucking show, the Mid-America Trucking Show in Louisville, Kentucky, where they won the award for “Best Pictured Truck.”

“Brand ambassadors help us connect to hardworking folks in our industry, and we couldn’t have picked a better team,” said Vice President of Sales Ralph Banks. “Their commitment to quality is something we admire and desire in our brand ambassadors and by adding these drivers to our team, we know we are in for a great 2019!”
